We were a bit bummed to learn that 'Boardwalk Empire' showrunner Terence Winter had accepted a season 5 end to the HBO prohibition drama in order to develop his new 1970s New York rock drama with Bobby Cannavale, Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese, but the proposed series just got a whole lot prettier. Olivia Wilde will return to TV for the new HBO period drama, but as whom, you ask?
Where yesterday brought some exciting 'Hannibal' season 2 news in the form of a new trailer and casting snippets, today comes the season's biggest casting news to date. 'Boardwalk Empire' alum Michael Pitt has officially joined the second season of NBC's darkly dreary cannibal drama in a major recurring role, none other than iconic literary villain Mason Verger!
We'd heard the rumor earlier, but didn't want to believe it for ourselves. HBO period drama 'Boardwalk Empire' will make the upcoming fifth season its final year, putting the last touches on the story of Steve Buscemi's Nucky Thompson, his associates, and organized crime from Atlantic City to Chicago.
And so another season of 'Boardwalk Empire' has been lain to rest, bringing with it a few expected character deaths, and even more surprising survivals. Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) will have a world of new troubles for the HBO prohibition drama's upcoming fifth year, but what do cast and crew have to say of the shocking turnout of season 4 finale "Farewell Daddy Blues?"
Tonight brings the season 4 finale of 'Boardwalk Empire,' and as the title indicates, "Farewell Daddy Blues" has us saying goodbye to characters in various ways. The writers saved a few surprises for this elegant and gripping final hour, in which tables are turned and the inevitability of tragedy once again comes into focus. Tonight, the conflicts between Narcisse and Chalky, Gillian and Richard, and Agent Knox and the Brothers Thompson all come to a conclusion -- and not without taking a heavy toll.
This Sunday will see HBO period drama 'Boardwalk Empire' closing up shop for the season, as Nucky faces a vengeful Chalky and Gillian awaits her comeuppance in the finale hour of "Farewell Daddy Blues." The first few clips of the season 4 finale have arrived, but who will we pour one out for by season's end?
Tonight's all-new episode of 'Boardwalk Empire' shakes up the formula a bit: last season's penultimate episode was filled to the brim with action and violence, giving us a more subdued finale that paved the way for season 4; this week's episode continues to forcefully drive in the screw that's been slowly turning all season long. There are a couple of surprises in "Havre De Grace," but tonight's episode is definitely preparing us for a much bigger conclusion in next week's finale.
On tonight's new episode of 'Boardwalk Empire,' Sally Wheet tips Nucky off to the heroin piggybacking on his shipment of rum from Tampa, further complicating the bigger issues plaguing him at home -- with Chalky White and Dr. Narcisse on the precipice of war, whose side will Nucky take? "White Horse Pike" brings long-simmering conflicts to a boil in both Atlantic City and Chicago, and there's no shortage of bullets flying tonight.
On this week's new episode of 'Boardwalk Empire,' tensions continue to mount between Chalky and Dr. Narcisse, as the latter makes a rather violent declaration. "Marriage and Hunting," as the title implies, has a bit to do with marriage, but it also has a whole lot to do with secrets and lies.
