Even though HBO's Boardwalk Empire doesn't premiere until next month, fans can, and should, take in another prohibition drama this weekend in order to tide them over. Lawless, based on "The Wettest County in the World," tells the tale of moonshiners in rural Virginia who eventually come up against some big city pressure from bootleggers in Chicago. Although none of the characters directly cross over (yet), there are certain name drops that would definitely be familiar to those who like to spend Sunday nights on the Boardwalk.

And Sunday night's on HBO are in desperate need of some filling, with the recent departures of The Newsroom and True Blood, but at least with the finale of the latter, "Save Yourself," we got a brand new look at the upcoming third season of Boardwalk Empire. It's been over a year in Atlantic City since Nucky was done being half a gangster but the events of the season finale are clearly not far from his mind. Or anyone else's. It doesn't look like a very happy New Year’s Eve but an eventful 1923 is certainly on the horizon.

First of all, is there any better way to open a trailer than showing Richard Harrow? The character, played by Jack Huston, is already amazing and then you have Nucky ask him, "how many people have you killed?" Great start to what is probably the most intense and revealing look at Season 3 so far, not only hyping up the new rival in Bobby Cannavale's Gyp Rosetti but also how his arrival will be bad for everybody. And then we get to see everybody. Well, all those who still live and breathe as well as a few other new faces like Stephen Root and James Cromwell. Uh, I'm not sure anyone even knew the man from L.A. Confidential and Babe would be making an appearance.

Boardwalk Empire Season 3 premieres with “Resolution” on Sunday, September 16 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. It stars Steve Buscemi, Kelly McDonald, Michael Shannon, Shea Whigham, Vincent Piazza and Michael Stuhlbarg. It was created by Terence Winter.
