Much to fans' disappointment, the upcoming new season will mark the final installment of the series which follows the rise of the porn industry in New York in the 1970s.

AceShowbiz - There are both and good news for fans of James Franco-starring HBO series "The Deuce". The network has announced that the series has been renewed for a third season ahead of its season 2 premiere on September 9. However, the upcoming new season is set to be the final installment of the series which follows the rise of the porn industry in New York in the 1970s.

Creator David Simon takes to Twitter to share the bitter sweet news. "We're always conjuring the last scene before we write the first. So much the better when we work for people who allow us to consistently plan, arc and execute as intended," he writes alongside a picture of him with the crew and cast including Maggie Gyllenhaal. "Thanks, @HBO, for the third and final season renewal and the chance for #thedeuce to tell its full story."

Also created by fellow "The Wire" creator George Pelecanos, "The Deuce" is about the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York's Times Square from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s. It explores the rise of HIV, the violence of the drug epidemic and the resulting real estate booms and busts that coincided with the change.

Franco plays a dual role on the series, portraying twin brothers Vincent Martino and Frankie Martino. Meanwhile, Gyllenhaal takes on the role of sex worker named Candy. The series also stars Margarita Levieva as Abigail Parker, Emily Meade as Lori and Gary Carr as C.C.

In addition to starring, Franco serves as executive producers alongside Pelecanos, Simon and Nina Kostroff Noble. Richard Price is co-executive producing with Marc Henry Johnson and Gyllenhaal producing.
