HBO is doing anything but outlawing its Emmy-winning drama ‘Boardwalk Empire’ -- instead, the network has renewed the drama for a third season.

The announcement comes three weeks after the second season launch of the Prohibition-set series, which brought in 2.9 million viewers, down 12% from its first season finale.


The pickup is more good news for the drama, which received eight awards at this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards, including one for Martin Scorsese for directing in a drama series.
