New Orleans, 38 months after. Barack Obama has just been elected to the White House, giving entrenched residents of this still-battered city reason for optimism. Yet for every Batiste, Lambreaux, McAlary and Desautel who hopes to improve his or her lot – or just return to a sense of pre-Katrina normalcy – others are intent on capitalizing on the city’s vulnerability and suffocating its culture. HBO’s drama series Treme revisits the musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians, and other familiar New Orleanians who continue to rebuild their lives, their homes and their culture in the aftermath of the 2005 hurricane that caused the near-death of an American city. In the series’ final five episodes, which take place from November 2008 through Mardi Gras 2009, the promise of economic and cultural recovery – heightened by a historic presidential election – is tempered by sobering economics, continued police corruption, and the ongoing specter of violence and crime. Still, the connection Treme’s protagonists have with their city keeps them committed to its future – and to building their own legacy in this most iconic of American cities.

Wendell Pierce (Antoine Batiste)

Straight outa the Sixth Ward, pure Treme trombonist Antoine Batiste totes his horn from gig to gig. He has mouths to feed. His ex-wife LaDonna is taking care of their sons with her current husband, Larry, but his girlfriend Desiree and baby daughter Honorée depend on him.

Steve Zahn (Davis McAlary)

Clarke Peters (Albert Lambreaux)

Albert Lambreaux left New Orleans after the storm but has returned to stay, against the wishes of his children Davina and Delmond. Chief of the Guardians of the Flame, he is determined to reunite his Mardi Gras Indians and mask for Carnival 2006.

Khandi Alexander (LaDonna Batiste-Williams)

LaDonna grew up in New Orleans, lovingly watching her father work in Gigi's Place, the tavern she now owns. Katrina scattered her family; her sons Alcide and Randall Batiste and husband Larry Williams are in Baton Rouge while her mother and ex-husband Antoine Batiste remain in town. Weekly travel on I10 has become part of her routine.

Melissa Leo (Antoinette)

A tireless attorney working to defend the rights of New Orleans musicians and other citizens, Toni Bernette's already challenging vocation was made more so by Katrina's impact on the city's legal system.

Kim Dickens (Janette Desautel)

Janette Desautel is one of New Orleans up-and-coming chefs in a city known for its restaurants. Her Uptown neighborhood restaurant, Desautel's, survived Katrina but keeping it staffed and stocked since has been a challenge...as is rebuilding her flood-damaged home in Mid-City.

Rob Brown (Delmond Lambreaux)

Delmond has gigs -- in New York, in Boston, in cities far from his native New Orleans. An accomplished trumpet player, he prefers Dizzy, Miles, and Bird to brass band music, and living in New York. Albert Lambreaux's post-storm return to New Orleans is forcing Delmond, his only son, to reconnect to his roots.

John Goodman (Creighton Bernette)

Lucia Micarelli (Annie)

Jackson Square lights up when Annie plays her fiddle. From classical to Cajun to New Orleans standards, her talent and love for the music shines through. Annie and boyfriend Sonny scrape out a living performing on the streets of the French Quarter.

Michiel Huisman (Sonny)

Sonny, a street musician from Amsterdam, and his girlfriend Annie, rode out the storm and once again perform their music on Royal Street and in Jackson Square. Growing up in Europe, he dreamed of one day moving to New Orleans and living the musician's life. 

Jon Seda (Nelson Hidalgo)

Arnie Reyes' cousin from Houston, Nelson Hidalgo plans to be a big player in the city's ever growing rebuilding industry. That may happen. But, whether it does or doesn't, he's having himself a ball.

David Morse (Terry Colson)

A shift lieutenant in the NOPD and good friend to Toni Bernette, Terry Colson is good police.  He recognizes the additional trauma Katrina and the subsequent flooding of New Orleans have brought upon his already troubled department, but he won't let that be an excuse for shoddy police work.

India Ennenga (Sofia Bernette)

The only child of Toni and Creighton Bernette, Sofia is a full fledged adolescent now. She struggles with the death of her father and proves a handful for her mother.

Chris Coy (L.P. Everett)
