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... //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
