HBO Renews Its Vows With Big Love

Big news for Big Love: The polygamy drama will be back next year for a fourth season! HBO announced the renewal with a statement saying, "The series keeps getting better and better."

One thing that wasn't getting better, at least earlier this season, was the ratings — the show's season three premiere (which came after a long break caused in large part by the writers' strike) drew just 1.2 million viewers. But The Hollywood Reporter notes that the show's grown in the ratings each week since then, and the show's currently averaging about 5 million viewers a week once all the repeat airings are taken into account.

The show's excited co-creators gave E! a statement celebrating the good news, making the following promise to fans:

As season three continues they'll forget about the time they waited and get caught up in our best season ever. And we also swear we won't make them wait as long next year.

Well, that sounds promising. Tell me: Are you excited that there's more Big Love on the way in 2010?

I am so excited to know my favorite show is coming back. I was near tears in the end because I thought they had closed a lot of stories so I was so afraid it was never going to come back on again. Yes, I just hope it does not take so long. Why can't it be on like a soap everyday forever???

I love this show. Bill Paxton is awesome and Ginnifer Goodwin is fun to watch. I'm glad its already scheduled for another season. Every show leaves me on the edge of my seat at the end.

i like this show, but wish they would focus more on the family dynamics than on bill's work stuff. i'm always thinking, what are the girls up to?!?

i'm thrilled that the show is going to keep coming back. to be honest, i don't typically remember to watch it when it first comes on but i do watch it during the week and i just love the show. i hope that we get to see more drama out of it since it's really getting to be more involved.

My roommate will be stoked she loves this show and I'm starting to like it. We scheduled t.v. times she gets Sundays for Big Love and I get Mondays for Gossip Girl. It's a win-win :)

Yes, this show is great!! So many twists and interesting plot lines. The family is so normal and yet SO not at the same time--you can help but feel like you're watching something really secret...
