Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 - Preview

Boardwalk Empire, Season 5

Preview by Jack Foley

AFTER five explosive seasons of one of the best shows on TV, the deeply compelling prohibition drama Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Fifth Season will be released on Blu-ray™ and DVD on January 12, 2015.

From esteemed writer Terence Winter (The Sopranos) and HBO director Timothy Van Patten (The Wire, Game of Thrones, Rome, The Pacific), the critically acclaimed Boardwalk Empire has been nominated for 7 Emmy® Awards this year, adding to a total of 47 nominations over five seasons.

Steve Buscemi stars as ‘Nucky’ Thompson, along with an outstanding all-star cast, including British actors Kelly Macdonald (Gosford Park, No Country for Old Men) and Stephen Graham (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, This is England) as Al Capone, plus Michael Shannon (Man of Steel, The Iceman) as Agent Nelson Van Alden, Shea Whigham (Take Shelter, The Lincoln Lawyer) as Nucky’s younger brother Eli Thompson and Michael Kenneth Williams (12 Years a Slave, The Wire) as Albert ‘Chalky’ White.

Season Five takes place in the depths of the Great Depression in 1931, as Nucky recalls his Atlantic City roots and plots a post-prohibition future.

The country is struggling to cope with the Depression, the end of Prohibition is looming, and Nucky Thompson is looking to legitimise himself through alliances with liquor producers, while rivals Lucky Luciano (Vincent Piazza: Jersey Boys) and Meyer Lansky (Anatol Yusef: Last Orders) seek to consolidate their power in the wake of Arnold Rothstein’s death and eliminate all competition – by any means necessary.

Make the most of the long winter evenings by catching up on the complete fifth season of Boardwalk Empire, released on Blu-ray™ and DVD on January 12, 2015 and available to own and watch instantly via digital download. Visit for more information.
