‘Boardwalk Empire’ Renewed by HBO for Fifth Season

HBO has handed a fifth season to period drama “Boardwalk Empire.”

Prohibition-set drama returned for its fourth run on HBO earlier this month, and has averaged a gross audience of 7.5 million viewers this season. Show is created by Terence Winter, who exec produces alongside Martin Scorsese, Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson, Tim Van Patten and Howard Korder.

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

News arrives after Bobby Cannavale took home the Emmy for supporting actor in a drama for his role on “Boardwalk.”

“Boardwalk Empire” airs Sunday nights on HBO.
