The power-hungry Pope Alexander VI and his cunning children, Cesare and Lucrezia Borgia, sinned, sexed and scandalized their way through three seasons on THE BORGIAS.  With ambitious plans to create a hereditary kingdom across the heart of Italy, they must rely on their love and devotion to one another to continue their legacy.  Tune in to see how the dramatic saga of one of history’s most infamous dynastic families concludes on Sunday, June 16th at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME.


THE BORGIAS stars Oscar® winner Jeremy Irons in his Golden Globe®-nominated role as Pope Alexander VI, along with François Arnaud, Holliday Grainger, Joanne Whalley, Lotte Verbeek, Sean Harris, Thure Lindhart, Gina McKee, Peter Sullivan, Julian Bleach and Colm Feore.  The series is created by Academy Award® winner and Emmy® nominee Neil Jordan (The Crying Game, Interview with the Vampire), who also serves as an executive producer, writer and director of select episodes.  Additionally, the third season is executive produced by Jack Rapke, Darryl Frank, John Weber, Sheila Hockin and James Flynn.  THE BORGIAS is a Canadian-Irish-Hungarian Treaty co-production.

    The only reason I kept Showtime subscription was for The Borgias series, now I can save money. Thanks Showtime.

    Loco73 made most of the valid points and right in line with my thinking..It’s down to “Game” now for really quality paid cable ’till Homeland makes it back…And just as with “Deadwood”, they’ve left me hanging with some loose ends I’d really like to see tied up… I’d kill like Micheletto for a 2 hour “wrap-up” movie. The cast/storylines were great, going to miss this show.

    They way to get Showtimes attention is to hit them where it hurts, in their Bank Account. Everyone who is a fan of the Borgias should just cancel their subscription at the same time July 16. I’m sure the powers that be at Showtime will take notice.

    If Showtime won’t produce a 4th season of The Borgias maybe it should be done direct to video through Netflix like “Arrested Development.”

    Shame on you for not doing season 4 or even 5! This was the best production I have ever seen on Showtime or even HBO,why would you even think of not doing another series!!

  • ChannelConnoisseur

    I watch almost every great show there is, from Sopranos and Sex and the City through Weeds, Californication, Rome, Oz, Breaking Bad, Homeland, Game of Thrones, Battlestar Galactica, Dexter, Six Feet Under, etc. etc. OK, too much time spent watching TV (but only the good stuff).

    Point is, I have a good point of comparison when I say that Borgias started out good, was ok second season, and became great in the third season.

    Good shows –especially ones this complex–take time to hit their stride, and time to “catch on” in viewership from there.

    Dumbest decision ever to cancel it now, just as it was hitting greatness.

    Given another half season it would have overtaken Game of Thrones; the characters are far richer and the storyline more complex. I love G.O.T. but Borgias, to my surprise, surpassed it this season.

    Netflix, oh Netflix, please pick up this gem and run with it. You will reap the rewards!
