All good things must come to an end and so we’ll soon be saying goodbye to Nucky Thompson and his cohorts. HBO will end the Emmy-winning dramatic series Boardwalk Empire after its upcoming fifth season, so says President of HBO Programming Michael Lombardo. “It has been an incredible honor to bring this powerful and groundbreaking series to our subscribers,” offered Lombardo in the official announcement of the show’s final season. “Terry Winter has created one for the ages.”
“We’re thrilled to get the go-ahead for a fifth season of Boardwalk Empire,” said Winter, co-creator of the series with Martin Scorsese. “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.”
Hopefully the show will be going out on a high note after picking up five Emmys in September 2013. It also received three 2014 Screen Actors Guild nominations (the series already has four SAG Awards from 2012 and 2011 wins). In 2012 the drama earned four Emmy Awards including one for outstanding directing, and in 2011 it pulled in eight Emmys.
