     October 2, 2012

Though the series is only three episodes into its third season, HBO has already renewed the period drama Boardwalk Empire for a fourth season.  Ratings have been steady with last year’s numbers, so THR reports that HBO went ahead and gave the greenlight for season four, set to air in 2013.  The third season premiere garnered 2.9 million viewers, on par with the season two premiere.  Moreover, the cumulative total of viewers from repeat airings was a healthy 7.2 million viewers.

I’ve only seen the first season of the Steve Buscemi-fronted drama, but our TV expert Allison Keene has been keeping tabs on the show with her weekly recaps.  If you’re behind or want a refresher on past episodes, you can check those out right here.
