The end is in sight for a much-honored HBO drama series. The Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker reports that the pay-cable channel has decided to wrap “Boardwalk Empire” after a fifth and final season.
Season five will debut this fall, the report notes.
In a statement, show creator Terence Winter said: “We’re thrilled to get the go-ahead for a fifth season of ‘Boardwalk Empire.’ 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."
The show stars Steve Buscemi as Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, who rules Atlantic City during Prohibition.
