Boardwalk Empire returns to HBO tonight (7 September) with its season 5 premiere episode, titled Golden Days for Boys and Girls.

According to Entertainment Weekly, when the new, final season of Boardwalk Empire starts Sunday, the Roaring Twenties will be over. The Depression will have set in, and the end of Prohibition will be just a couple of years away.

Here are some descriptions released by HBO, on the new episode:

"Season five opens in 1931 with Nucky in Cuba, where he presses a US senator on the likelihood of Prohibition's repeal and eyes a future business deal with a rum magnate. Meanwhile, Margaret witnesses a casualty of the Great Depression on Wall Street; Luciano makes a bold career move; Chalky catches a break to get out of a bad situation; and in a flashback to 1884, a young Nucky makes an impression on the Commodore.

"Working on Wall Street, Margaret finds herself in the hot seat when her boss, facing an internal investigation, decides his own future. Down but never out, Chalky seizes an opportunity to extricate himself from a difficult situation. In New York, Lucky Luciano sets in motion a bold plan that reverberates all the way to Nucky in Cuba."

Boardwalk Empire season 5 premiere will air on HBO 9:00pm EST (5pm GMT).
