'Boardwalk Empire' Season 2 Trailer: Nucky's Surrounded By His Problems (VIDEO)

Nucky Thompson may run Atlantic City, but heavy is the head that wears the crown. HBO has released a new trailer for Season 2 of 'Boardwalk Empire,' and it has the feel of a nightmare, or perhaps a Tony Soprano-style panic attack, in progress.

Nucky strolls down the boardwalk, surrounded on all sides by people who want a piece of his time, or worse, his power. A politician who's in business with all kinds of bootleggers and criminals, Steve Buscemi's Thompson seems to be feeling the stress of constantly juggling responsibilities, egos, women, and playing different factions off each other.

As each new character walks by, we're reminded of just how deep a milieau of supporting characters 'Boardwalk' created in its first season. There's Jimmy and Al Capone, back from Chicago to claim their piece of the action. There's Chalky White, menacingly played by Michael K. Williams, who Nucky relies on and exploits for cheap bootlegging labor. Eli Thompson, the chief of police, stands alone brooding, having hatched a plot with Jimmy and the Commodore to take his brother Nucky down in last season's finale.

Check out the trailer after the jump.

Season 2 of 'Boardwalk Empire' premieres Sun., Sept. 25 at 9 PM on HBO.

Hopefully this show can escape The Supranos shadow this season. I also wish we were all getting a second dose of the Terrific show FX's Terriers.
