‘Boardwalk Empire’ Final Season 5 Premiere Date Announced

The fifth and final season of the award-winning HBO period piece drama  Boardwalk Empire  will officially begin on Sunday, September 7, consisting of eight episodes. As the country struggles to cope with the Great Depression (circa: Atlantic City, 1931) and the end of Prohibition looms, Nucky Thompson (series lead Steve Buscemi) looks to legitimize himself through alliances with liquor producers, while rivals Lucky Luciano (series regular Vincent Piazza) and Meyer Lansky (recurring guest star Anatol Yusef) seek to consolidate their power in the wake of Arnold Rothstein’s (Michael Stuhlbarg) death and eliminate all competition – by any means necessary.

Boardwalk Empire: Change Is Coming to Atlantic City in the First Full Trailer for the Final Season (VIDEO)

It's almost last call for HBO's Prohibition-era drama Boardwalk Empire , which begins its swan song Sunday, September 7 at 9pm. And if the new full-length trailer is to be believed, Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) is not going to go quietly. The shortened, eight-episode final season will pick up during the throes of the Great Depression in 1931, as change comes to Atlantic City and Nucky plots for a post-Prohibition future. Vincent Piazza's Lucky Luciano gets quite a bit of screen time in the promo below, but Nucky is still threatening faceless enemies. Meanwhile, Michael Shannon's Nelson Van Alden is on the run (and has his very own Most Wanted poster!) as Michael K. Williams' Chalky White is... well, see for yourself:   Read More... http://www.tv.com/shows/boardwalk-empire/community/post/boardwalk-empire-change-is-coming-to-atlantic-city-in-the-first-full-trailer-for-the-final-season-video-140779113285/?ftag=YHF764e441

Boardwalk Empires Upcoming Big Twist

  Boardwalk Empire returns for its fifth and final season this fall , and when it does, big changes are afoot. Really big ones, in fact. "The storyline has jumped seven years," Michael K. Williams tells Den of Geek. "The Depression has set in. The days of the shiny shoes and fancy suits are long gone." Yep, it looks like the new season will be set in 1931, and Williams's character Chalky is just as down and out as everyone else. "It ended very badly for Chalky last year. His family life is no more, and he is desperately seeking [Jeffrey Wright's] Dr. Narcisse to settle old scores," Williams says. Ominous! Depression-era ominous.   http://www.vulture.com/2014/06/boardwalk-empires-upcoming-big-twist.html
