This coming season will be the last...
The story of Nucky Thompson comes to an end this fall. HBO announced during the Television Critics Association press tour today that Boardwalk Empire will end its run following the upcoming fifth season, which airs at the end of this year.
HBO president Michael Lombardo said of the show in a press release, "It has been an incredible honor to bring this powerful and groundbreaking series to our subscribers. Terry Winter has created one for the ages."
The show is set in the 1920s during Prohibition, and chronicles the life and times of Enoch "Nucky" Thompson (Steve Buscemi), the undisputed leader of Atlantic City. The show has been a critical and ratings darling for HBO.
