‘Boardwalk Empire’– WATCH New Trailer For Season 5
“The trick is to stay alive long enough to cash out,” Steve Buscemi‘s Nucky Thompson says in the brand new teaser for Boardwalk Empire‘s upcoming season, as he ponders an exit strategy.
The teaser, short and to the point, features an ominous cover of Three Dog Night‘s “One” in the background, and the song’s message — and the tagline for the fifth and final season — is clear: all empires fall.
Fans of the show cannot help but wonder if the final season will end in a bloodbath. In previous seasons, the show killed off many characters, including some fan favorites, and if the new trailer is any indication, shots are fired.
Very little is known about the upcoming episodes, however, season five will take place in 1931, which is seven years from where the fourth season left off. For those of you who are familiar with American history, that will set the season during the Great Depression.
Season five of Boardwalk Empire premieres in September on HBO.
