HBO Renews Boardwalk Empire For Third Season

Take a shot if you saw this coming: Boardwalk Empire is coming back for a third season, HBO announced Wednesday.

“Following a triumphant first season, I was eager to see what Terry Winter, Martin Scorsese and the rest of their stellar team had in store, and they continue to surpass our highest expectations,” said HBO president Michael Lombardo. “The response from the media and our viewers has been extremely gratifying.”

At last month’s Emmy Awards, Empire — which is three episodes into its second season — picked up eight (mostly technical) trophies, including one for best director Martin Scoresese.

    Thank you HBO! Quality programing does attract viewers. My Lord I love this period drama. There are NO simple characters. There are secrets and lies, and a lot of pain and conflict. The show has one of the best casts on television today. Even small roles are so intriguing.

    LOVE this show! Have told everyone I know to watch…casting is awesome. It’s like watching a movie every week, not a TV show. My only complaint is that I hate it when each episode is over!!! I WANT MORE!

  6. Matt says:

    Easily the most overrated show on TV.

    It’s incredibly boring.

      You mean to say there isn’t enough violence and dirty language to keep a plebeian like yourself entertained?

      I’m sure there’s a Larry the Cable Guy special on somewhere for you to watch.
