PASADENA, Calif. -- HBO says its drama "Boardwalk Empire" will end after a fifth season this fall.

The series stars Steve Buscemi as "Nucky" Thompson, the backroom dealer of Prohibition-era Atlantic City. The show won five Emmy awards in September.

Creator Terry Winter said Thursday that the decision to end things came after a great deal of discussion with HBO and his creative team. He says he looks forward to bringing the series to a powerful and exciting conclusion.
