‘Boardwalk Empire’ season 5 – watch first trailer

HBO finale to air this autumn

Boardwalk Empire Season 5 will air this autumn. A trailer has been released for the HBO show’s final run of eight episodes.

“I Will Not Rest Until I See You in Your Graves!” Set in 1931, the finale sees Atlantic City bootlegger Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) facing an increasingly hostile underworld.

Lucky Luciano takes centre stage in the 80-second teaser while Nucky appears to be forming a partnership with Bacardi.

Meanwhile, Van Alden (Michael Shannon) has the police on his tail and Chalky White (Michael K Williams) goes on the run.


The final season will premiere on Sky Atlantic this autumn. The synopsis for the first episode, Golden Days for Boys and Girls , has been revealed by HBO: “Nucky reminisces about catching the Commodore’s eye; Nucky joins Sally Wheet in Cuba.”

The fourth season finale piled the bodies high with sniper Richard Harrow (Jack Huston) biting the dust but Nucky’s brother Eli (Shea Whigham) making it out alive.
