HBO is hanging on to a good thing. The network has confirmed what most of us already suspected: Boardwalk Empire is sticking around. The period drama, which is currently in its third season, has been renewed for a fourth.
In an official press release, Michael Lombardo, President of HBO Programming, broke the news.
"Terry Winter, Martin Scorsese and the rest of their outstanding team continue to produce a stunning show that never fails to surprise and entertain,” said Lombardo. “We are excited to bring this unique series back for a fourth season.”
Boardwalk Empire returned for its third season on Sept. 16. The episode earned an impressive 7.2 million viewers, with additional telecasts, On Demand and DVRs. That's quite a feat considering the fallout from last season's finale. Viewers weren't too happy after the death of a certain fan favorite. But people are sticking with the show. They want to see how it all plays out.
Season 2 scored big at this year's Primetime Emmy Awards with five wins. They included Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series (Tim Van Patten); Outstanding Art Direction for a Single-Camera Series (tie with Game of Thrones); Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series; and Outstanding Special Visual Effects in a Supporting Role.
We would expect nothing but greatness from a show produced by Winter, Scorsese and Mark Wahlberg. Bring on the drama!
