'Boardwalk Empire' gets a second season

Only one episode has aired of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire,” but one episode was all the network needed to see that it was a bonafide hit.

The series, which launched on September 19, has been picked up for a second season, the network confirmed Tuesday.

“All the ingredients aligned for this one, from Mark Wahlberg and Steve Levinson’s initial pitch to Martin Scorsese’s enormous contributions as director and executive producer, to the genius of Terry Winter and the expertise of Tim Van Patten, to a stellar cast led by Steve Buscemi,” said Michael Lombardo, president of HBO’s programming.

Critics have been raving about the show seemingly before it even began, and the audience response was just as positive, with 4.8 million viewers tuning in on Sunday night. If you missed it on Sunday and want to catch up from your desk, check out our recap here.
