We are a little over a month away from the return of full-gangster Nucky Thompson. Season three of “Boardwalk Empire” is sure to be a dramatic shift from the second considering all that went down on that rainy beach during the season finale.

Fan favorite Agent Van Alden and Richard Harrow are back in their own photos, but the set also includes a look at a new character played by Bobby Cannavale named Gyp Rosetti.

The picture featuring Richard is probably the most insightful into what may be going on this season. The half-masked character appears with Jimmy’s son and mother, hinting that he has helped fill the space left by his former associate.
