We're about five weeks away from pouring out 'Boardwalk Empire''s fourth HBO season on September 8, which is sure to drag Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) through the Atlantic City mud for an even more ruthless season than the ones that preceded it. We've seen the first trailer for the next round, but what (or whom) does 'Boardwalk Empire' season 4 reveal in its latest photos?

If nothing else, the new photos give us our first look at Patricia Arquette as a Tampa speakeasy owner, as well as the first appearance all season of Margaret Thompson (Kelly MacDonald), who was last seen throwing Nucky out of her life for good. Meanwhile, the other returning players and new faces are probably up to some crime. Illegal crime. Take that, history.

The new season for Steve Buscemi’s prohibition gangster Nucky Thompson also includes ‘The Killing‘ star Eric Ladin as a young J. Edgar Hoover, ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘ star Jeffrey Wright as educated Harlem leader Dr. Narcisse, ‘True Blood‘ star Brian Geraghty, Ron Livingston in a new regular role, and HBO vet Domenick Lombardozzi as Chicago mobster Ralph Capone, elder brother to Al Capone (Stephen Graham).

We'll bring you the latest on 'Boardwalk Empire' season 4 up to the September 8 premiere, but check out the first photos below, and tell us what you're most interested to see from the fourth year!
