It’s almost over. Entourage‘s eighth season is its last, with the final episode of the popular HBO series set to air in mid-September. We’ve been following the exploits of Vince (Adrian Grenier), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara), Drama (Kevin Dillon), Eric (Kevin Connolly) and Ari (Jeremy Piven) since first being introduced to the gang on July 18, 2004, and saying farewell’s going to be tough. Although the seasons have been real hit and miss, this final season has found its groove again just in time to say good-bye to Vince, his entourage, and his power-hungry agent. But it’s likely this won’t be the absolutely last time we see the Entourage gang together as the powers-that-be behind the series (including Mark Wahlberg) insist there will be a feature film based on the show.
