HBO knows we want another season of Band of Brothers
HBO network heads Michael Lombardo and Richard Plepler recently announced their interest and heavy consideration for a third season of the critically acclaimed miniseries Band of Brothers. Already, a concentration has been discussed on arial battles in the Pacific during WWII and while project talks are very much still in early stages, speculation runs wild for a more detailed story and creative direction.
The original 2001 ten episode, eleven hour miniseries, Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks produced, focused on the mission of US Army 101st Airborne division in Europe during WWII. Honors and awards were practically thrown at the series and its creators, the fan following still continuing to grow. Recently, in 2010 the makeshift second season came to life in The Pacific, focusing on three Marines fighting against the Japanese in WWII. Riding in on the still looming success of the miniseries, its a surprise HBO has not sooner announced any ideas for a third season, but still highly anticipated.
Because of a recently signed output deal with David Fincher (for the upcoming Netflix original program House of Cards) rumors run amass if HBO will use Fincher on this particular project. It would certainly be an excellent combination, Fincher a great talent behind drama has not yet covered a war field or airspace. Regardless, more news should surface on the project soon and hopefully another miniseries season can be seen in the near future.
