First look at Boardwalk Empire's second season

HBO’s Boardwalk Empire was a huge success when it debuted last year; as well as receiving praise from critics, it won two Golden Globes and a strong audience.

The series is set in Atlantic City, New Jersey, during the prohibition era and is adapted from a chapter about Enoch ‘Nucky’ Johnson from Nelson Johnson’s Book, Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times and Corruption of Atlantic City.

The first episode was directed from Martin Scorsese and was the most expensive pilot produced in television history. 

Starring Steve Buscemi as Nucky, the series returns for a second season later this year and we have a teaser feature from this from HBO.

The video shows us viewers what we can expect from future episodes, as well as a few teasers about what’s coming up for characters such as Nucky, Margaret (Kelly Macdonald) and the young Al Capone (Stephen Graham).

Boardwalk Empire is on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
