Fans of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” can rejoice! The network picked up a fourth season of the mega-hit, as announced on Tuesday (October 2).

During its previous three seasons, the Prohibition-era drama has scored multiple Emmy nods along with popular critic approval, so it’s no wonder that HBO renewed it.

"Terry Winter, Martin Scorsese and the rest of their outstanding team continue to produce a stunning show that never fails to surprise and entertain," HBO president Michael Lombardo said in a statement. "We are excited to bring this unique series back for a fourth season."

According to E!, since its debut “Boardwalk Empire” received 12 Emmy awards, a Golden Globe for Best Drama Series and star Steve Buscemi took home a Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Drama Series.
