It's almost last call for HBO's Prohibition-era drama Boardwalk Empire, which begins its swan song Sunday, September 7 at 9pm. And if the new full-length trailer is to be believed, Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) is not going to go quietly.
The shortened, eight-episode final season will pick up during the throes of the Great Depression in 1931, as change comes to Atlantic City and Nucky plots for a post-Prohibition future. Vincent Piazza's Lucky Luciano gets quite a bit of screen time in the promo below, but Nucky is still threatening faceless enemies. Meanwhile, Michael Shannon's Nelson Van Alden is on the run (and has his very own Most Wanted poster!) as Michael K. Williams' Chalky White is... well, see for yourself:
Are you ready to say goodbye to Nucky and the Boardwalk Empire gang? Place your bets in the comments on which of Atlantic City's unscrupulous characters will live to see the end and whose luck has finally run out (historical facts not withstanding).
