Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Nucky Thompson may be surrounded by enemies, but at least HBO is still in his corner. The network has renewed 'Boardwalk Empire' for a third season.

"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," Michael Lombardo, president of HBO programming, said in a statement. "The response from the media and our viewers has been extremely gratifying."

The Golden Globe and Emmy-winning drama follows a group of gangsters in 1920s Atlantic City. In September, Martin Scorsese took home an Emmy for directing the Prohibition-era series. The show won a Golden Globe for Best Drama Series and Steve Buscemi took home an award for his portrayal of Nucky Thompson in January.

Season 2 kicked off on Sept. 25 and has held steady ratings, close to 3 million viewers per episode.

notice that Nucky said vote republican. there's a lot of truth to the GOP being real SOBs and that crime (or they just change the law to make it legal) is their way of life.

Noooo. The show went bad when Jimmy slept with him mom. And then made Nucky kill him in a ugly set up with a cold hart after what jimmy did for him to get him off those charges. BS.... JIMMY brough "Gangster" to the show. Nucky's character would not kill Jimmy the way they did at the end. Although Jimmy did betray Nucky, he did not deserve to go. He cared about Nucky and could not kill him in the begining. The idea of killing Nucky upset him even upset him. The others including Eli pressured him to be part of the attempted assasination. They ruined the show for me and so many others that followed the show.

Boardwalk Empire shows one of the real ways 'Whites' have the power in this country, They have stolen everything from everyone and have the nerve to say they work hard. This is how white folks got and are getting what they have. Bribes, killing, stealing and thieving, thriving on the weak fo rtheir own selfish gain.
