The Borgias

THE BORGIAS will be a complex, unvarnished portrait of one of history's most intriguing and infamous dynastic families. The series begins as the family's patriarch Rodrigo (Jeremy Irons), becomes Pope, propelling him, his two Machiavellian sons Cesare and Juan, and his scandalously beautiful daughter, Lucrezia, to become the most powerful and influential family of the Italian Renaissance.

'The Borgias' is Cancelled by Showtime After Three Seasons.
Showtime's period drama The Borgias won't get to see its natural end. Showtime has cancelled the series, based on the titular historical family, after three seasons, bringing the show's run to a close just one year earlier than planned. The Borgias series finale, "The Prince," will air on the 16th June 2013 on Showtime.

I really enjoyed this show! It's to bad Showtime cancelled it. I guess that's one more reason not to tune in to Showtime. Time to start checking out the other premium channels.

What a shame. Did Showtime get pressured from the Catholic Church? Well I for one will be cancelling Showtime. HBO offers better shows and doesn't keep cancelling shows on us. They care about their viewers.

We, the consumers, have made Showtime what it is today, by our loyalty. The cancellation of the show, is an insult to the loyal consumers. Milwaukee,

WTF??!??!? Here I am waiting all summer and now we're halfway through Sept. and I thought "Have I somehow missed it.. is it on another channel that I haven't paid for? The new "stories" are starting.. isn't it time yet?" So I thought .. hey I got internet.. look up "Borgias" and see what comes up..... and THIS is what I find. One of the BEST "period" pieces in a long time and of course "THEY" (Showtime) have to get rid of it. I could have easily gotten rid of Showtime for the summer and saved some money and waited 'til fall to turn it back on and not missed a thing!! The same movies run continuously, like they are on one huge loop.. (wait a week and they will be back around...) who the hell schedules them anyway?? And can we ever get new ones????? But let's get back to The Borgias: What's even worse.. I went to .... and bought the DVD's of all the Seasons. What really made me angry is that the DVD's (which cost quite a bit) AREN'T COMPLETE!!!! I remember each episode (having watched not just the "current" story.. but past stories over & over, like a favorite book that you don't want to put down) and what's on the DVD is a shortened or changed! I thought that by putting your trust into buying these you'd be getting the WHOLE episodes! What A Rip Off!!! Needless to say, I am very disappointed!

Don't fret. We expected showtime to follow suit. They are as we know corporate whoremasters. They don't care a bit about us, just our money. There is another Borgia's series running. produced by the French company Canal+ . It is just as good if not better. The actors and costumes are superb. I recommend finding it and watching it. They are going to do their last season and sum this amazing story up. You can get it on Netfix right now if you like. Go.. be happy. I just cancelled showtime. think about doing the same.

The Borgais...One of the best shows ever aired...I can only compare it to my favorites of "Rich Man, Poor Man" aired in the 70's or "North and South" Books 1-3...aired in the 80's and 90's...I do hope there will be a change of heart since the show has had historical merit...Please reconsider going on with it...I know the cast and writer/producers, etc., must be exhausted, however, this one is the only reason I watch Showtime. I have watched each episode many times, often in place of other channels, just because the period costumes have been magnificent, the actor portrayals have been enticing. An exemplary TV series with a special place in my memories.

I'm am tired of wating and taping these series and can't see the true final end!!!! I loved Boss and it was cancelled! If you cancelled the show why is it you don't make it available for those who want to watch the last series be able to purchase it on a tape? I really hate your'e not bringing it back. All my family and friends are very dissapointed!!!!!!!!!!
