It’s 1931 and dirty deals, dancing girls and plenty more are shaking down in Atlantic City as Boardwalk Empire builds to a big finish
“I will not rest until I see you in your graves …” In the first look at Boardwalk Empire’s fifth and final season, it’s 1931 in Atlantic City: Lucky Luciano is looking to nationalise his business, Nucky is busy making death threats down the phone, Nelson Van Alden has made it on to the FBI’s Most Wanted list and there are plenty more dancing girls shaking their tail-feathers. We like the look of that prison break too. In case you can’t place it, the Killers’ Tranquilize is the anachronistic soundtrack.
Boardwalk Empire season five starts 7 September on HBO in the US, and early October in the UK on Sky Atlantic.
