Another one of HBO’s wildly popular Emmy winning shows, Boardwalk Empire, has been renewed for another season. Boardwalk Empire’s fourth season fate was determined after strong ratings from the September 16th third season premiere. Notable contributors to the series include Academy Award winning director, Martin Scorsese, along with Emmy Winning writer Terence Winter. The cast is led by Steve Buscemi, who portrays “Nucky” Thompson, a 1920’s gangster/politician in Atlantic City during the prohibition era.
While I’ve personally never seen the show, there is nothing but positive buzz surrounding it. As seen on Deadline.com, the overwhelming support can be seen nationwide: “Among the early critical raves for the new season of BOARDWALK EMPIRE, the Boston Globe hailed the show’s “dazzling production” and “knockout performances,” while New York’s Daily News described it as “first-rate.” Newsday termed the series “immensely entertaining,” and Variety called it “as handsome, well cast and impeccably crafted as anything on TV.”
I definitely plan on catching up on Boardwalk Empire right after I’ve caught up on Showtime’s 2012 Emmy Awards show stealer, Homeland.
