HBO’s new trailer for Season 3 of “Treme” hints at some good things, and some ominous ones, for the people of New Orleans.
On the one hand, the city is continuing to recover from Hurricane Katrina, tourists are beginning to return, and Delmond (Rob Brown) is continuing to to get accolades — including some from his dad (Clarke Peters) — for his trumpet playing.
On the other hand, houses are still being demolished, and crime is still a big problem (along with corruption or indifference from the police force). There’s also an ominous-sounding line about “the chance to monetize the culture” of the city.
Janette (Kim Dickens), who’s still based in New York, sums things up pretty well by saying that while she thinks of home every day, “I just don’t know if I want to through it all again.”
Season 3 of “Treme” premieres Sept. 23 on HBO. What do you think of the trailer?
