HBO’s ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Season 5 is Final Run

Boardwalk Empire Season 5 Final Year Confirmed Series Finale
HBO

The HBO period drama ‘Boardwalk Empire” will make the upcoming fifth season its final year, putting the last touches on the story of Steve Buscemi‘s Nucky Thompson, his associates, and organized crime from Atlantic City to Chicago.

Details are scarce, but HBO confirmed the move.

There had been rumors that Terence Winter had interest in moving on to his Mick Jagger-produced, Bobby Cannavale-starring record executive drama, which could take Winter off “Boardwalk Empire” after the fifth season, which may end up with a reduced number of episodes as well.

Michael Lombardo, president of programming at HBO, praised series creator Terence Winter:

“It has been an incredible honor to bring this powerful and groundbreaking series to our subscribers,” he said. “Terry Winter has created one for the ages.”

Winter added: “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.”

“Boardwalk Empire” isn’t the only marquee HBO series to call it quits this year either, as “True Blood” will say goodbye in the summer with another run of 10 episodes.
