Following resounding critical approval for the series' second-season debut on Sept. 25, HBO has renewed Boardwalk Empire for a third season, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming.
"Following a triumphant first season, I was eager to see what Terence Winter, Martin Scorsese and the rest of their stellar team had in store, and they continue to surpass our highest expectations," said Lombardo. "The response from the media and our viewers has been extremely gratifying."
From Terence Winter, Emmy Award-winning writer of The Sopranos and Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese, Boardwalk Empire is set in the 1920s in the early days of Prohibition, and chronicles the life and times of Enoch "Nucky" Thompson, the undisputed leader of Atlantic City, who was equal parts politician and gangster.
