Will there be a HBO Rome Season 3?
Unfortunately the answer to that question at the moment is no. I am receiving quite a lot of search engine hits for this particular question and the HBO Rome keyword, so I thought I answer this question in a single post. There has been no word to give hope that there will be a HBO Rome season 3 despite the many disappointed fans.
It was announced by Chris Albrecht in July 2006 news conference that season 2 would be the last, Originally the film was developed for two years contract with the BBC but found some difficulties to continue due to a few problematic facts of which for being extremely expensive with very low viewer rating. Here is a useful quote on the subject from the co-creator Heller:
“I discovered halfway through writing the second season the show was going to end. The second was going to end with the death of Brutus. Third and fourth season would be set in Egypt. Fifth was going to be the rise of the messiah in Palestine. But because we got the heads-up that the second season would be it, I telescoped the third and fourth season into the second one, which accounts for the blazing speed we go through history near the end. There’s certainly more than enough history to go around.”
The cancellation of HBO Rome was really sad for the fans (counting myself as well) especially at the very exciting point!
