On Aug. 14 Enstarz reports that Nucky is going to have some new competition trying to take over the boardwalk of Atlantic City in season four. Season four will be showcasing the year 1924 at the high of the jazz era. Jazz was a big business during that time and Chalky went to great lengths to earn his spot on the boardwalk by helping Nucky to eradicate his competition and help put him on the path of power once again.
Now, a powerful black man who calls himself Dr. Narcisse is threatening their position as he wants a piece of what Nucky and Chalky have built for themselves. Narcisse comes from Harlem, the epicenter of jazz. He is quite powerful, even Alan Rothstein admits that, despite his dislike for colored men.
Unfortunately for Nucky, Dr. Narcisse isn't the only one that is gunning for his position of power. This season we will also see the rise of Al Capone as he viciously shoots a Chicago cop in broad daylight. While Capone may be gunning for power in Nucky's territory, he has his own adversaries in Chicago-- Dean O'Bannion. They will brawl as is seen in one of the trailers for the upcoming season.
"Boadwalk Empire" premieres on HBO on Sep. 8 at 9 PM. Will you be watching?
