HBO renews Boardwalk Empire for second season

Despite airing only one episode of its new gangster series Boardwalk Empire, HBO has renewed the series for a second season.

The show, which stars Steve Buscemi in the lead role, was successful in its first outing in the States last weekend, pulling HBO’s biggest premiere audience since 2004’s Deadwood.

“Following resounding critical approval and high viewer numbers for the series’ September 19 debut, HBO has renewed Boardwalk Empire for a second season,” an HBO press release said.

“The response from the media and our viewers has been nothing short of amazing,” said HBO’s programming president Michael Lombardo.

Boardwalk Empire kicked-off here on HBO Canada on Sunday.
