October 29, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): The controversial run of ‘Big Love’ on HBO is nearing its end. The fifth season of the show is destined to be exceedingly short, lasting only about ten episodes. It is expected to conclude early next year.

January 16 has been scheduled for the commencement of its fifth season but the storyline featuring an interesting mix from the family of Utah polygamists will no longer be around to entertain the viewers all the year round.

Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer, the creator and the executive producer of the show respectively , however, argue that it has nothing to do about the popularity of the series as the makers had always held the notion that the show would be ending after a fixed number of episodes.

Olsen had gone on record during season 1 of the show saying that there was a better path for the characters apart from hiding in the suburbs. The fourth season of ‘Big Love’ had ended with Bill Henrickson played by Bill Paxton announcing publicly that he was a polygamist, that too soon after getting elected to the Senate.

Olsen and Will Scheffer had prepared a joint statement which told of their plans. They said that they would try to present a fitting and vibrant finale to the show for the sake of its audience.

Michael Lombardo, the programming president for HBO is confident of the duo bringing the show to its end in accordance with their plans.

‘Big Love’ is immensely popular in the state of Utah where it is set. The filming though is done elsewhere. Almost all real life incidents like the FLDS Church, Warren Jeffs, Mark Hofmann, the Mormon brother have doubled up as storylines sometime or the other.
