The teaser, below, which HBO has released as a long-lead look at the fourth and final season of New Orleans drama "Treme" comes with two key pieces of information.

The first is that the final arc will take place 38 months after Hurricane Katrina, in 2008, and the second is that the final, abbreviated five-episode season will premiere late this year, on December 1st at 9pm.
