HBO Renews VICE For Two More Seasons
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.07.2014



Coming Soon reports that HBO has renewed it's news magazine show VICE for two more seasons. Season three will debut in 2015 with fourteen episodes. Season four debuts in 2016. The series is hosted by Shane Smith (founder of the youth media company of the same name) and looks at "pressing issues", including civil unrest, terrorism, government corruption and environmental threats.

HBO President Michael Lombardo said: "The success of 'VICE' on HBO proves that people are hungry to be engaged in world events when the storytelling is not packaged into sound bites. VICE's smart, honest, in-depth approach to news coverage is a perfect complement to HBO''s programming."

Smith added: "We would like to say a big 'thank you' to HBO for letting us do what we love for another two seasons, and for providing the best platform in television where the stories we work so hard on can live. VICE on HBO has transformed our brand. It has forced us to get better, to try harder and now, with two new seasons, we will keep striving to be better still. We promise to report on the under reported, to tell the forgotten stories and to remain committed to uncovering the truth about our planet in peril. Here we come."

Smith and the correspondents of the show travel worldwide to look at "overlooked and under reported" stories, which are presented in a documentary style. Issues focused on during the first two seasons include, according to the press release "environmental destruction in Greenland triggered by climate change, rampant U.S. military waste and corruption in Afghanistan, extortion, torture and killing in Rio's favelas and terrorist training in Dagestan. Correspondents have embedded with Nigerian oil pirates, reported from within North Korea, and offered a firsthand look at Afghanistan's child suicide bombers."

The latest season, which runs for twelve episodes and started on March 14, saw more award-winning correspondents added, as well as an increase of episodes. It airs on Fridays at 11-11:30 PM ET/PT after Real Time with Bill Maher. It's executive produced by Maher, Smith, Eddy Moretti and BJ Levin, with consulting producer Fareed Zakaria.
