Thanks to a massive time jump, when Boardwalk Empire returns to HBO for its fifth and final season, we’re likely to see the characters in a very different place.
Given how things left off last season, it was probably safe to assume that Michael K. Williams’ character, Chalky White, would be still looking for revenge against Dr. Narcisse, but as the actor told Den of Geek during a press day for The Purge: Anarchy, the show will have jumped seven years into the future.
“The storyline has jumped seven years,” he said, “which is why I have the beard now. The Depression has set in. The days of the shiny shoes and fancy suits are long gone.”
