Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Nucky Thompson may be surrounded by enemies, but at least HBO is still in his corner. The network has renewed 'Boardwalk Empire' for a third season.

"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," Michael Lombardo, president of HBO programming, said in a statement. "The response from the media and our viewers has been extremely gratifying."

The Golden Globe and Emmy-winning drama follows a group of gangsters in 1920s Atlantic City. In September, Martin Scorsese took home an Emmy for directing the Prohibition-era series. The show won a Golden Globe for Best Drama Series and Steve Buscemi took home an award for his portrayal of Nucky Thompson in January.

Season 2 kicked off on Sept. 25 and has held steady ratings, close to 3 million viewers per episode.
