The final season of “Treme” starts on an up note for the residents of New Orleans, but as with the entire story to date, not everything will be easy.
HBO has released a teaser for the abbreviated, five-episode season, which premieres at 9 p.m. ET Dec. 1. The show picks up on election night in 2008, three-plus years after Hurricane Katrina.

Wendell Pierce, Khandi Alexander, Clarke Peters, Steve Zahn, Melissa Leo, Kim Dickens and the rest of the regular cast returns for Season 4, which will conclude with the series finale on Dec. 29. Take a look at the trailer:
