Boardwalk Empire Season 4 Gets Solid Premiere Date

By Jacob Klein on Jun 6, 2013 to Boardwalk Empire


Break out the hot toddys and party hats because Boardwalk Empire season four finally has a firm air date: SUNDAY  September 8th!  Here’s the official word from HBO today:

BOARDWALK EMPIRE returns for its 12-episode fourth season SUNDAY, SEPT. 8 (9:00-10:00 p.m.). Set in the 1920s during Prohibition, this Emmy®- and Golden Globe-winning drama series stars Steve Buscemi as “Nucky” Thompson, the undisputed leader of Atlantic City. The show was created by Terence Winter, who also serves as executive producer with Martin Scorsese, Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Tim Van Patten and Howard Korder.

No trailers just yet but I’d be on the lookout for a brief teaser of some kind with the Game of Thrones finale this week and/or the True Blood premiere next week. Several new characters will be present in Atlantic City this go-around so get ready for a totally new atmosphere.

We’ve updated our premiere schedule with the firm date and a countdown.

    When will the season finale of the newsroom air since September 29th Boardwalk Empire airs and at 10 it is Hello Ladies and at 10:30 it’s eastbound and down?

    • Honestly don’t know how that’s going to work. I think you meant Sept 8th for BWE by the way…

      So I’m guessing it will go BWE at 9 and TNR at 10 starting on BWE’s premier night (the 8th). Only need to do that for two episodes though and those other shows you mention don’t start til the 29th! Odd way to run this! Seems like starting TNR earlier might have worked better…

        I did mean September 8th, thanks! There are two weeks where the newsroom is the only show, so maybe HBO will air two episodes.
