The fourth season of HBO’s drama series Boardwalk Empire will receive its UK premiere on Saturday October 26th at 9pm. The premiere episode will also debut on-demand (ahead of its broadcast premiere) on October 20th.
Boardwalk Empire was created by Terence Winter and follows the exploits of Nucky Thompson and his criminal enterprise in Atlantic City in the 1920′s. The drama series stars Steve Buscemi, Kelly Macdonald, Michael Shannon, Shea Whigham, Jack Huston, Stephen Graham, Michael Stuhlbarg, Vincent Piazza, Paul Sparks, Michael Kenneth Williams and Gretchen Mol. The show’s fourth season opens in 1924 and sees Nucky Thompson, having barely survived an overthrow by gangster Gyp Rossetti, laying low at the end of the Boardwalk. But the calm will be short-lived, as Nucky faces new challenges, including a clash with the mayor, a battle with his brother Eli over Eli’s college-age son, and the irresistible lure of lucrative and perilous opportunities in Florida.
