Boardwalk Empire ending after season 5
HBO has confirmed that season 5 of Terence Winter's superlative Boardwalk Empire will be its last...
Boardwalk Empire, it's been confirmed, returns to HBO in September 2014 with what will be its fifth and final season.
Creator Terence Winter had this to say on the announcement: "After much discussion with my creative team and HBO, we’ve decided to wrap up the series after such a great run and look forward to bringing it to a powerful and exciting conclusion.”
It's regrettable for fans that Steve Buscemi-starring prohibition-era drama is bowing out after next year, especially after what was arguably the show's greatest season, but five is at least a decent run. It didn't do Breaking Bad any harm to say its goodbyes at that point.
More on season five as it arrives.
