Boardwalk Empire, it's been confirmed, returns to HBO in September 2014 with what will be its fifth and final season.
Creator Terence Winter had this to say on the announcement: "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.”
It's regrettable for fans that Steve Buscemi-starring prohibition-era drama is bowing out after next year, especially after what was arguably the show's greatest season, but five is at least a decent run. It didn't do Breaking Bad any harm to say its goodbyes at that point.
More on season five as it arrives.
