HBO has renewed Boardwalk Empire for a fifth season, the network announced Thursday.

The prohibition era drama, starring Steve Buscemi, returned on Sept. 8 with 2.4 million viewers for its 9 p.m. premiere, its smallest debut in its four seasons against stiff Sunday night competition including the red-hot final season of Breaking Bad. Season-to-date Boardwalk is averaging a gross audience of 7.5 million viewers.
 

On Sunday, series star Bobby Cannavale picked up an Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series, one of five total Emmy awards the drama received this year.
 
Boardwalk Empire is created by Terence Winter and executive produced by Winter, Martin Scorsese, Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson, Tim Van Patten and Howard Korder
