Showtime has cancelled The Borgias

Showtime has officially axed The Borgias. Despite receiving generally positive reviews and starring Jeremy Irons as the pope, the drama’s 2.4 million views (across all platforms) weren’t enough to save it. Showrunner Neil Jordan said in a statement, “I never thought I would make a cable series and have enjoyed every minute of it. For a variety of reasons we won’t be doing a fourth season, but, ‘The Prince’ [the final episode], when I wrote it and shot it, did seem like the end of a journey for the family. Whatever bonded them as a family dies in this episode, and the center of the drama for me was always the family.” Much to the chagrin of A.V. Club reviewer Les Chappell, The Borgias will air its final episode June 16. [via Entertainment Weekly]
