Boardwalk Empire renewed for season 5
Nucky and the Boardwalk Empire crew will see season five, as HBO renews the acclaimed prohibition-era drama...
Days after Bobby Cannavale won a Best Supporting Actor Emmy, HBO has renewed Boardwalk Empire for a fifth season. Announcing the decision just weeks into the season four run is a confident move from the cable network, for which Terence Winter's period drama is a key part of the autumn schedule.
Season four has so far maintained the rich complexity of its predecessor, splintering its ensemble to some extent, and developing compelling individual stories from supporting players that prove the strength of Boardwalk Empire's characterisation. New blood in the current season, with Patricia Arquette, Jeffrey Wright, and Ron Livingston all having joined the fourth run, has also shored up the impressive existing cast.
Boardwalk Empire season five is expected to air on HBO in autumn 2014.
