As the TCA’s are ongoing, HBO and Cinemax took the stage today to make a few announcements. Boardwalk Empire season 5 will premiere on HBO on September 7th, kicking off the final stretch of episodes for the Steve Buscemi-fronted series. Additionally, the return of The Comeback will take place in November, as the fantastic, Lisa Kudrow-led cult comedy returns for a six-episode limited series event following its short-lived first season back in 2005.
And on the Cinemax side of things, THR reports that creator/showrunner Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming drama The Knick has already been renewed for a second season, even though season one doesn’t premiere until August 8th. Clive Owen stars as a surgeon at Knickerbocker Hospital in 1900 New York, an era in which medical procedures were extremely dangerous. Soderbergh directed all 10 episodes of the first season and has stated his eagerness to return for season two. Watch the trailer after the jump.
