The sun will set on Boardwalk Empire after next season

HBO continues its trend of sun setting shows as soon as they hit their peaks (The Wire anyone?).  Boardwalk Empire is the next show to join this list. Boardwalk Empire will end after Season 5 according to Rolling Stone.  The final season Boardwalk Empire will debut sometime this fall.

Some are not so sad about the cancellation. Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter issued the following statement:

“We’re thrilled to get the go-ahead for a fifth season of Boardwalk Empire,” he said. “After much discussion with my creative team and HBO, we’ve decided to wrap up the series after such a great run and look forward to bringing it to a powerful and exciting conclusion.”
