Fortunately for fans, it is looking likely that the show will indeed be returning for a fifth outing, yay! Although HBO has yet to officially announce the new series, Ed Harris has spoken about the final season, telling The Hollywood Reporter: "I don’t know if that’s going to happen. I certainly have not been told, but I’m not sure if [William has] got much chance of surviving.

"I don’t know if he’s ever going to return to being that man [played by Jimmi Simpson]. I’m hoping that some aspect of who he was when he was younger comes back, but I really don’t know if it will. I have no idea what they’re planning. We have one more season, which will start filming next April and May. I have no idea where that’s going to end up."
