It’s been a wild ride through the prohibition-era landscape of Atlantic City, but sadly “Boardwalk Empire” won’t make it past the fifth season.

According to HBO, the Steve Buscemi drama, winner of five Emmys this past year, will come to a close after this fall.

Honcho Michael Lombardo told press, “It has been an incredible honor to bring this powerful and groundbreaking series to our subscribers. Terry Winter has created one for the ages.”

Creator Terry Winter added, “We’re thrilled to get the go-ahead for a fifth season of ‘Boardwalk Empire.’ After much discussion with my creative team and HBO, we’ve decided to wrap up the series after such a great run and look forward to bringing it to a powerful and exciting conclusion.”
