The final season of HBO's superlative Boardwalk Empire begins on September the 7th in the US...

Nucky Thompson will be back on the boardwalk as of September the 7th, HBO has confirmed at the ongoing Television Critics Association tour.

The fifth and final season of Terence Winter's prohibition-era drama will start on Sunday the 7th of September, taking the finale - if the eight-episode series airs without interruption - to late October 2014.

Our US chums learned earlier this year from Chalky White actor Michael K. Williams that season five will take place during the great depression in 1931, seven years after the end of season four. "The days of shiny suits and fancy shoes are long gone", Williams announced.
