Grab your gun and an extra set of underpants because HBO has released the first trailer for the final season of the Prohibition Era series Boardwalk Empire! A cover of "One" (as in "the loneliest number") plays over glimpses of scantily clad women, (lots of) men with guns, and bootleg kingpin Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) formulating an exit strategy ("The trick is to stay alive long enough to cash out," he says).
A sense of foreboding surrounds the trailer, reminding viewers that this series probably won't have a happy ending for (m)any of the people involved, but that's why it has us both excited and scared like Jessie Spano on caffeine pills. After an excellent fourth season, we expect great things from the show's swan song (premiering in September) even if some of our favorite men and women might not make it.
So check out the trailer below and then 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).
Are you excited for Boardwalk Empire's final season?
