big-loveOct 29, (THAINDIAN NEWS) HBO has announced the end of the polygamy drama ‘Big Love’ after the conclusion of season 5. Though the news comes as a surprise to some of the fans, the creators and executive producers of the show said that while writing the story for the fifth season, they realized that they were on the verge of concluding it. Mark V Olsen and Will Scheffer revealed in a statement that while starting the show they had a clear idea about the story that they wanted to tell. They explained that while writing about the journey of the Henrickson family for the fifth season, they discovered that they were heading towards the culmination of the story.

‘Big Love’ stars Bill Paxton as Bill Henrickson who is a polygamist from Utah. His three wives are played by Jeanne Triplehorn, Chloe Sevigny and Ginnifer Goodwin. The series also starred Amanda Seyfried as the eldest daughter of Bill Henrickson, who struggles to come to terms with her father’s polygamous faith. The complications of the drama began with Douglas Smith who is the eldest son of the family and is attracted to his third mother, Margene, played by Ginnifer Goodwin who dismisses it as incestuous.

The show first premiered in March 2006 and has enjoyed significant viewership and ratings over the years. With a strong cast and complex and intriguing plat, not many could have predicted that the drama would conclude in the fifth season. Reports suggest that Mark V Olsen and Will Scheffer are presently working on a new show that will air on the pay cable network shortly. Season 5 of ‘Big Love’ airs January 16, 2010.
