HBO has renewed the news magazine series VICE for two more seasons, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. Season three will debut in 2015 with 14 episodes, and season four will debut in 2016.
Hosted by Shane Smith, founder of the revolutionary global youth media company of the same name, VICE explores today’s most pressing issues, from civil unrest and hotbeds of terrorism, to unchecked government corruption and looming environmental catastrophes.
“The success of VICE on HBO proves that people are hungry to be engaged in world events when the storytelling is not packaged into sound bites,” noted Lombardo. “VICE’s smart, honest, in-depth approach to news coverage is a perfect complement to HBO’s programming.”
