Mark Wahlberg has expressed his support for an “Entourage” reboot amid buzz that the hit HBO show could be making a comeback. The actor, who was a co-executive producer of the show, told Page Six at the grand opening of Tao’s restaurant Cathédrale at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday night that he would “definitely support it.” He called the series a “cultural phenomenon” and said he was “always sad to see the show end.”
Wahlberg praised the original stars of the show, saying they did an “amazing job.” He even recalled bringing the former cast members to Vegas to make sure they had chemistry before filming the pilot episode of the HBO series, which ran for eight seasons from 2004 to 2011.
The reboot chatter has been swirling since the show’s creator, Doug Ellin, shared that he is shopping a new show that includes some of the original cast members. Ellin has teased wanting to make a reboot before and admitted in 2021 that he just needs Wahlberg to get behind the project. Several of the former cast members have expressed interest in signing on for a revival, including Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jeremy Piven, Jerry Ferrara and Kevin Dillon.
Wahlberg said that an “Entourage” reboot would probably look different today, with the characters doing less partying and more church-going and family-having. He also has his hands full with other ventures including his tequila brand, Flecha Azul.
Overall, Wahlberg is supportive of a potential “Entourage” revival and is hopeful that it will happen. He said it would be exciting to see what the characters have been up to since the show ended and how they have grown.
