Boardwalk Empire has been given the greenlight by HBO for Season 3. HBO programming president Michael Lombardo says that after the 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.”

The 1920s set prohibition drama recently won eight Emmy awards (including Outstanding Directing - Martin Scorsese), two Golden Globes (Best TV Series and Best Actor - Steve Buscemi), and two SAG Awards (Ensemble Performance and Best Actor - Steve Buscemi) earlier this year. Boardwalk Empire was created by Terence Winter (The Sopranos).

HBO has also renewed True Blood, Game of Thrones and Treme.

Critic David Chute reviews and recaps the series each week.
