That didn't take long.
Only three episodes into the second season of Boardwalk Empire, HBO has picked up the HBO drama for 2012.
Said HBO president Michael Lombardo in a statement today:
“Following a triumphant first season, I was eager to see what Terry Winter, Martin Scorsese and the rest of their stellar team had in store, and they continue to surpass our highest expectations. The response from the media and our viewers has been extremely gratifying.”
Boardwalk Empire airs a new episode on Sunday night, as previewed above.
