The Wire, Season 4HDMA15+Closed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


In the projects. On the docks. In City Hall. And now, in the schools. The places and faces change, but the game remains the same. A new story begins — on the fourth season of HBO's acclaimed series The Wire. This year, while expanding on storylines introduced in previous seasons — including the new vocations of several characters, the rise of a new drug empire, and the city's imminent mayoral election — the series expands its focus into Baltimore's school system, providing an inside look at the role of the urban educational system in shaping young people's lives. This storyline is played out through four new young characters, each of whom faces difficult choices amidst the temptation of crime and easy money. Dominic West, John Doman, Frankie Faison, and Aidan Gillen lead the tremendous ensemble cast.

Customer Reviews


Outstanding crime drama with a brilliant exploration of education and politics that would resonate with many systems outside of Baltimore.

Absolutely amazing

I would rank this as the single greatest season of television (from arguably the greatest television series of all time) that I have ever seen, or am likely to ever see. Like with all previous seasons of The Wire, the steady build up of the series, with each episode representing a chapter in the story leads to a climax that overshadows anything that came before it, even including Stringer Bell and Avon Barksdale at the end of season 3.

I cannot recommend this season highly enough.
