Is The Wire Season 6 renewed or not? Has HBO greenlit the show until now? If so, when’s the release date? Track the actual status of The Wire in this post!
Back in 2011, it was Attorney General Eric Holder who literally ordered Simon and co-creator Burns to revive ‘The Wire’ with season 6 or make a sequel movie.
“I want to speak directly to [co-creator Ed] Burns and Mr. [David] Simon: Do another season of The Wire [season 6]… That’s actually at a minimum… If you don’t do a season, do a movie. They’ve done HBO movies, this is a series that deserves a movie. I want another season or I want a movie. I have a lot of power Mr. Burns and Mr. Simon.”
The Wire Season 6: Brief recap!
The Wire season 1 concentrated on the often-futile efforts of police to infiltrate a West Baltimore drug ring. It was headed by Avon Barksdale and his lieutenant, Stringer Bell.
In the following seasons, we saw the Barksdale investigation escalate. New storylines involving pressures on the working class and the city’s political leadership were introduced.
The Wire season 6 renewal status: Will it be renewed or cancelled?
Last week, Simon responded to Holder and wrote, “The Attorney-General’s kind remarks are noted and appreciated. I’ve spoken to Ed Burns and we are prepared to go to work on season six of The Wire if the Department of Justice is equally ready to reconsider and address its continuing prosecution of our misguided, destructive and dehumanizing drug prohibition.”
So, there you have it. There’s a good chance that The Wire season 6 won’t be renewed. Although there hasn’t been a straightforward formal announcement yet, be certain that there won’t be a season 6 of the series! In case we receive any potential news, we will publish ‘em in our upcoming articles. Stay tuned!
The Wire season 6 status on HBO?
Season 6 – canceled!
The Wire Season 5 Release Date – January 6, 2008
The Wire season 6 release date: When’s it scheduled to premiere?
As aforesaid, the show has been cancelled and there won’t be a season 6.
Season 6 of ‘The Wire’ would have an unlimited list of themes to place under surveillance. And, wiretap the unreachable dark realities of contemporary broken institutions in the wake of the WikiLeaks controversy and election fraud.
It would have, no doubt, been a lot of fun, had there been a renewal. But guess, we ain’t that lucky.
Where to watch The Wire season 6?
The show is available on Hotstar!
Is The Wire similar to Breaking Bad?
Fans of crime dramas have frequently compared the two shows in an attempt to figure out which is better. However, comparing ‘The Wire’ and ‘Breaking Bad’ is as difficult as it gets!
Every character in the former is multifaceted and realistic. With the exception of Walter White, the rest of the characters in ‘Breaking Bad’ appear a little flimsy.
The plot of ‘The Wire’ is disguised as a puzzle, with each viewer happy when the final piece falls into place without difficulty. Because these are real concerns that occur in the real world, it is terribly realistic.
