For all the shocking events that concluded 'Boardwalk Empire's landmark second season, the departure of one particular character went largely overlooked. So with Michael Shannon's Nelson Van Alden setting up shop in Cicero, Chicago, well known as the eventual stomping grounds of Al Capone, might he run afoul of the law himself? And what new character will have "ice-water in his veins", according to clips from the September 16 premiere "Resolution?"
After the devastating hour that was 'Boardwalk Empire's second season finale "To the Lost," we knew that the series would never again be the same. Not only did one of the series most crucial characters fall by the wayside, their death changed Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) in a way that will reverberate throughout the upcoming third season. With that said though, will death really be the end? Might said character return from the grave in 'Boardwalk Empire' season 3?
'True Blood' season 5 and 'The Newsroom' have all come and gone, and will 'Falling Skies' fallen behind and the fifth season of 'Breaking Bad' about to break for the year, our Sunday's are looking increasingly bare. However are we to tide over the wait until 'Boardwalk Empire's season 3 premiere, with an ocean between now and September 16? Surely we're not as dry as prohibition, but how about a new season 3 trailer to whet your whistle?
The other day we were elated to find a new poster from 'Boardwalk Empire' season 3, a bad-ass new one-sheet that saw Nucky Thompson standing in the rain over the body of a fallen friend, artfully recreating the climax of season 2 finale "To the Lost" under the tagline "you can't be half a gangster." Sadly, that poster had to be taken down, but what better way to drink to the lost than to check out a brand new 'Boardwalk Empire' season 3 poster?
We're still anxiously awaiting the third season of HBO's gangster drama 'Boardwalk Empire,' especially after that bad-ass new trailer finally showed off footage of our return to Atlantic City post-Jimmy Darmody. We're still waiting to see how the shocking events of season 2 finale "To the Lost" weigh on Nucky Thompson in the new season, but what does the latest poster from 'Boardwalk Empire' season 3 teach us?
Sure, it's been nice the way 'Boardwalk Empire' has built toward its third season with a few leaks there and there, pouring shots (photos), and mixing together old footage, but this isn't prohibition, we want the good stuff! That's why the latest look at 'Boardwalk Empire' season 3 is the best yet, chock full of new faces, new rivalries, and everything that makes 'Boardwalk Empire' worth the wait. But what's the catch?
There lies a world of tension to be resolved when 'Boardwalk Empire' season 3 pours out its premiere on Sunday, September 23, because liquor and blood rarely stop flowing. Yesterday we caught our first official looks at the new season in the form of brand new photos, but we'd never let things run dry. How would you like to know what 'Boardwalk Empire' season 3 has in store for its first batch of episodes?
'Boardwalk Empire' season 3 has kept things relatively quiet, either apropos considering the nature of the series, or frustratingly dry. We'd much prefer the liquor to flow like wine and the women to flock like the salmon of Capistrano, so why wait for the first official photographs from season 3? Nucky,
Jimmy, Richard Harrow, Van Alden and the rest of the gang are all back, so take a look!
Oh sure, 'True Blood' is great for that satisfying fix of pulpy dramas and bloodthirsty cliffhangers, but what of those who turn to HBO for the much more hard-hitting drama, absent seasons of 'Game of Thrones' to whisk us off to Westeros? Indeed, 'Boardwalk Empire' will return to the air no sooner than Sunday, September 14, but is HBO feeling a bit quick on the draw? The latest teaser reminds us you can't just go half-way.
The news is good for fans of HBO's 'Boardwalk Empire,' but the news is even better for viewers of the network's post-Katrina drama 'Treme,' which has been off the air for over a year. HBO has officially issued season 3 premiere dates for both series, within just weeks of one another. So, when can fans look forward to having their favorite dramas back?
