'Boardwalk Empire' Renewed For Season 5 By HBO


HBO has renewed "Boardwalk Empire" for a fifth season, the premium cable network announced Thursday.

“Thanks to Terry Winter, Martin Scorsese, Tim Van Patten, Howard Korder and their stellar team, 'Boardwalk Empire' remains in a class by itself,” Michael Lombardo, president of HBO programming, said in a statement. “I look forward to another electrifying season of this impeccably crafted series.”

The Atlantic City-based mafia prohibition drama stars Steve Buscemi as Nucky Thompson, Stephen Graham as Al Capone, Michael K. Williams as Chalky White and Jack Huston as Richard Harrow.

"Boardwalk" Season 3 guest star Bobby Cannavale was a surprise winner at the 2013 Emmys, taking home the Best Supporting Actor statue for his portrayal of mobster Gyp Rosetti. "Boardwalk" won 5 total Emmys at the ceremony, the most of any show.

"Boardwalk Empire" airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
