Pilot episode: April 3, 2011
Creator: Neil Jordan

Season 1 Episode 1: 1.06 million U.S. viewers

Season 3 Episode 1: 0.58 million U.S. viewers

The ratings of «The Borgias» TV show can’t be considered high, but for the audience it was enough to film 29 episodes.

In the beginning of the current year Showtime management as well as Neil Jordan noted the project was too expensive to be renewed. Only on June, 5 it was officially informed «The Borgias» TV series wouldn’t be continued for Season 4. The release date for the final episode is scheduled for June 16, 2013. After that the project gets a status «ended».

Would you like the show to be renewed?

    oh nooooo!! we need season 4? too expensive ??? omg Showtime u are kidding me?

  2. Visual

    Just dont stop this show!!! I cannot believe they are considering cancelling it.

  3. Camila

    The world does not need another show. I really hope it is not cancelled.

  4. T.O.

    bring its back!!!! i say back !!!

  5. tina

    nooooo!!! i say back too

  6. veronica

    My heart is broken. I really hope this is a hoax. How and why wouldn’t you bring it back for at least a season 4!

  7. izzy

    shocking. this is really the best tv series i’ve ever watched

  8. evance

    I really liked this serie, I hope they do bring it back!!

  9. larry

    DO NOT WANT TO CANCEL SHOWTIME BUT !!!!!!!!!! please renew!!!!!!!!!

  10. Graymadd

    One of the best series on tv and they don’t want to do anymore, are they stupid or just don’t care for the viewers. I suppose they want to do more cheap cop series. Bring it back, we need series four.

  11. Earlonda Wyatt

    To expensive to make? Then drop a couple of the lame series you film like Californication, Web Theray and The Real L Word and spend the money spent on making those to film The Borgias. Simple Solution to your budget problem!!

    • Deborah Barnes

      I am in total agreement. Bring back at least season 4.

  12. DW

    Seriously, you cant end it like this…. at least do a “Series Finale” movie or something…

  13. ZenWitch

    Really? Canceling The Borgias? One of the best programs on T.V. Historically there’s only about one season left of material. (Spoiler Alert) Very soon Della Rovere with become The Warrior Pope and Caesar goes broke after selling out to him. Lucretia still has a couple of marriages coming down the Pike. Showtime still should have finished it out with a final season.

    • Dinie Welke

      I totally agree with you. Not being able to see this portion of history played out (by terrific actors by the way) is very disconcerting. We, the dedicated viewers, need to have closure. Granted, it takes a great deal of capital to bring such an epic story to production. Still, as others have stated, Showtime has spent money on productions far less worthy of the viewing audience.

  14. Marti

    Why end what is an excellent show? Probably to put more cr*p on TV not worth watching.

  15. anne

    Yes, bring it back. You can’t leave it hanging like that!

  16. Angee

    Really are you kidding me. Bring the show back. If not I will be force to cancel Showtime.

  17. Robert Winiarski

    Renew. If not at least end it properlt

  18. Bc

    One of the best shows ever to not have a finale season 4 is beyond stupid and proves the stupidity running amuck in America.

  19. Deb

    This is the first time that I have seen a “period” series cancelled. At least put the 4th season on demand so that who ever wants to watch…can! I think the series was well done and true to form. Put the 4th season on demand and keep your viewers happy.

  20. Dino

    It would be well worth continuing at least to the death of the real Alexander VI, 1503. That would neatly close the cycle at least.
    I agree with the other commentators: why doesn’t Showtime cancel some of their other crass, inane and uninformative shows instead of this worthy one?

  21. Jacqui

    I agree. This one of the best series on television. Cannot believe it is cancelled. Very disappointed in that decision. Bring it back for a fourth season.

  22. Lisa V

    NO!! I love the Borgia’s!! Seriously ShowTime? I renewed my subscription for the Borgia’s and Shameless. I am seriously thinking about canceling it. This bites

  23. cyndi wilson

    Please, such an intelligent, mind stirring, riveting story at least one more season to the end of his papacy. PLEASE!!!!

  24. I added showtime because of this show

    Incredible show. Damn shame

  25. sANDY bARTLETT

    oUR FAVORITE SERIES. wE GOT TO THE POINT WERE WE COULDN’T WAIT TO SEE THE NEXT EPISODE. iT IS GREAT. please DO NO CANCEL IT.

  26. sue

    showtime big mistake…loved this show

  27. Claudia

    Borgias and Dexter were the only reasons I had Showtime. Dexter is finished, Borgias not comming back. Time to cancel Showtime—

  28. Karey A

    Please bring the Borgias season 4. How can you leave the series unfinished like that!!

  29. Betty

    Plz renew the show!!! I love it! The costumes, beautiful imagry and fascinating characters have me hooked!!

  30. James

    We are truly disappointed our favorite show isn’t being played,I will pay the pope 10 duckets and a shilling to pray to god to afflict the canceller to a firer pit in hell.

    • lisa

      lol..

  31. Lucy

    Please bring it back for another season

  32. Marilyn ford

    Viewers would not know a good show if it bit them on the a*s. This was a great show!

  33. lisa

    awesome show…pleassse bring back for season 4. cannot end it like this! that’s just wrong! agree with Dino…..
    “I agree with the other commentators: why doesn’t Showtime cancel some of their other crass, inane and uninformative shows instead of this worthy one?”

  34. barb

    Yet another great series that is cancelled !!!!!! Please consider another season – if nothing else, just use this season to give us closure. I want to see a finale! P L E A S E . . . . . .

  35. Nancy Rattray

    NO!!!! First Weeds, then The Big C, now this. You’re losing me. Next you’ll be showing reality shows. You can’t leave us hanging like that.

  36. grid

    This was quality programing, acting, cinematography, writing so of coarse Showtime would want to take it off. It’s not the other mindless dribble that seems to take up so much of the airwaves.

  37. Taty

    I been waiting and waiting.How could they do this to us? So sad…

  38. J Maag

    Time to cancel Showtime, The Borgias is the only reason I was taking it. Excellent series. Tooo Bad

  39. melissa

    This was one of the best shows Showtime had to offer along with Dexter. Each season was better than the last one. Fans deserved a season finale atleast. Maybe Showtime should of done some stats on the many viewers who like Dexter and The Borgias before cancelling both shows! Someone should be fired! Showtime is done in my book!

  40. J. Neff

    I’m another person who only takes Showtime for The Borgias. I guess I can try to look at it as money I’m gonna save. NUTS!!!!!!

  41. Jennifer

    Oh noooooo!!!! They should continue

  42. ann j.

    how can you consider that a program that is so highly anticipayed as the Borgias not return!!!!! I may discontinue getting Showtime. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  43. multi chops

    The best thing on television in recent memory.
    Terrific cast and production values. It looks like a theatrical film.
    There is so much more to the Borgia story that needs to be told.

  44. ron

    I’m cancelling Showtime tonight if there will not be any new Borgias. I was waiting to see if there was a new season coming.

  45. Moe

    This is what these “big” t.v shows do – they don’t care about the viewers – they will just drop a show no matter how many people and how popular it is. It’s all a money thing – how many times have t.v. shows done this with different popular shows! The viewers don’t matter – face it!

  46. Steven

    well HBO canceled dead wood and show time is canceling Borgia’s, but let they keep some of the dumbest shows alive.

    well if they end showtime there is no reason to keep showtime because there is nothing elese really to watch on showtime. it was only reason I signed up for show time just like only reason I watched hbo was due to dead wood and now game of thrones, just like only thing I watch on AMC is walking dead and on sci-fi only thing I watch is being human. if all shows ended I would have no reason o keep driect tv at all any more lol

  47. Sarah cowley

    We want Borgias ’4 don’t let it be the last we love it

  48. Melanie

    Please we need season 4!!!!!!!!

  49. Joe S Ragman

    Who is worse Showtime or Time Warner – both screwed the customer. Hence I do not subscribe to Show Time and reduced my subscription presence with Time Warner.

  50. Cynthia

    Still waiting on season 4.

  51. Rose

    I can’t believe you cancelled The Borgias. This is such a huge disappointment. I loved this mini-series. What on earth are you thinking about? As far as I’m concerned, The Borgias was the best mini-series that Showtime ever produced. The way you left off the show was a total let down. Please reconsider producing the show.

    Signed,
    A loyal fan of The Borgias and
    Showtime.

  52. Richard Linick

    The Borgias is the best TV SERIES ever. My girlfriend and I are watching it a second time on Cablevision IO. Can’t believe it is cancelled.

  53. Sarah cowley

    We need the borgias back not a e book

  54. Conrad

    Can think of a lot other shows that are a waste of money. This one should have been a no brainer to continue.

  55. krys

    great no season 4. bull cr*p, just bull. too expensive my a*s!!! only good one. never watching sow time again.

  56. Joyelle

    I can not believe this. The Borgias was well written with superb actors. I know there has got to be a solution to keeping it own until the end of the story.

  57. Christina

    I am so glad I didn’t invest in buying the series. That would be awful to not have the complete show. Can’t believe they are not going to bring it back. Ticks me off!!

  58. Kristina

    yes I would like the show Borgias continued. While a little riskay I still enjoyed the program being it was based on history. I would also like the same actors playing their roles. Everyone just hates it when a program is continued but the actors are swapped out for new ones.
    we also hate when a program is cancelled before the complete story is told.

  59. Kristina

    we also hate when a program is cancelled before the complete story is told.

  60. Diane

    omg don’t cancel this show it is one o the best

  61. kathy

    I cant believe the Borjas was cancelled!!!! What is wrong with you showtime? That was one of the best shows on TV. I have no reason to subscribe anymore. I can’t believe you left it the way it ended and we are left with unresolved story lines! How classless Showtime

  62. Mary

    I can’t believe that it’s over. You didn’t finish it. No ending. I’ve watched this program faithfully now every season. Showtime were is your head? I won’t let myself get involved with any more of your series if you don’t finish what you started why would I let myself get involved again only to be disappointed.

  63. Elba smith

    Please finish the series with season 4. It is an anazing production with great acting!

  64. Bonnie Sommers

    Please continue with Season 4. This is the best series on either HBO or any other Showtime series. The thing that makes it good, is that it is based on actual characters. I’m sure you can think of some way to cut down on the cost of production!

  65. eve edwards

    don’t even think it. we want season 4. I don’t care to watch these series and then you drop it.
    The story di not end……….. drop something else and get this on the air.
    Eve
    very disappointed in showtime.

  66. elizabeth

    Maybe Showtime is to expensive to watch. Considering cancellation!

  67. melissa dover

    One of the few shows I looked forward to every week. Now I will have to find something good on another channel altogether. Don’t trust Showtime to bring something worth watching and keep it.

  68. lilly2006

    This all doesn’t make any sense! I hope the producers all all the film team will come back to senses and continue with the story and properly inclose this Borga’s Saga. It all doesn’t make sense otherwise!

  69. Lilly

    This all doesn’t make any sense! I hope the producers all all the team will come back to senses and continue with the story and properly inclose this Borga’s Saga. It all doesn’t make sense otherwise!

  70. Lance

    Cancel The Borgia’s???? Cancel SHOWTIME!!!!

  71. Jessica

    I love this show!!! Just finished watching all 3 seasons on Netflix and I was seriously considering buying showtime to watch season 4…this show is a beautiful and fun show!!!

  72. Joanna B.

    I adore this show, have been bingeing on Netflix with it now, when will season 4 be available for viewing on Netflix, do you know???? wonderful stuff.

  73. sue

    Do not cancel borgias. Fab show. One of the best series ever. Cmon showtime, do season 4. Don’t be like hbo and just cancel stuff. Im sure the actors would take a pay cut and keep their jobs.
    sort it out.

  74. Chabelin

    Please, bring it back. This is the best I’ve ever seen.

  75. Mel

    Please do another season!! Wonderful wonderful show!!!

  76. kelly

    So sad to leave a great show like this with no proper ending, SMH Showtime !! I was truly hooked :(

  77. Millie

    Unacceptable. How could you just cancel this show. You must run season 4. well then Netfix needs to pick it up so that you can only view it on Netflix like House of cards.

  78. Kathryn

    We bought all the Borgias so far since we don’t have Showtime. We are so disappointed it will not continue. It didn`t even end good, can`t believe it is over. Shame on you, Showtime!!!

  79. Chandra

    Have been binge watching the show for the past three days and have already gone through the first two seasons. Just realized that there won’t be a season four and I am terribly disappointed. It’s obvious that the show is expensive considering the amazing sets and costumes and the huge number of cast and crew, but fans (obviously) think it’s worth it. All three seasons are on Netflix now. Maybe some good advertising would encourage a late coming fandom – like Firefly! If no final season, maybe you could wrap it up with a movie (again, like Firefly). It just seems a shame to drop the whole endeavor so abruptly.

  80. Cindy

    I’m sooo bummed . I ambtotally hooked on the series!
    Please bring in series 4!!!

  81. FRED

    PLEASE DON’T CANCEL I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THE NEXT SEASON TO START I LOVE TO WATCH THIS SHOW I HATE IT WHEN I GET INTERESTED IN A SHOW AND THEN THEY CANCEL IT I WAS REALLY WAITING TO SEE IT COME BACK ON . I AM THINKING OF CANCELING SHOW TIME IF THEY END THIS SHOW

  82. Pamela

    I didn’t know about the show until I became a new member to Netflix 3 weeks ago. I became addicted to the series immediately and could not stop watching it. I was distraught to read that it will not be continuing with a Season 4. This series was amazing and I do hope it received any award for its phenomenal cast and costumes.

  83. Rebecca

    Please reconsider your decision to cancel season 4 of the Borgia’s!! Forgive me, but I believe it is very unprofessional of Show Time not to finish what it started and to leave the audience hanging like this! The last episode was no ending but a another cliff hanger. When exactly did you figure out this was an expensive production? This is extremely unfair to the fans (your customers) that you’ve drawn in, the cast (who are brilliant) and the countless people who have done and amazing job with all that it takes to put on such a production. Im sure you can find it in your “coffers” to give everyone one a final season or a two hour special to wrap things up!

  84. kathy

    we need a season 4, or a movie… I’m going to miss this series. There’s not a lot of decent programs on to watch. I hate it when you get hooked on a good show and then they cancel it.

  85. Carol

    A true series should not end before the story ends.
    When a show is based on actual events it should be
    Taken to the end of the story line whether by movie
    or another season. This has been a great show and
    I was really looking forward to another season.

  86. Laura

    Please no don’t cancel it. I need to know what happened the the family. Pope needs to die eventually. Please bring it back

  87. Tammy and Lowell

    We need Season 4. Bring it back.

  88. lauri

    !!!! Why!!!!!!!

  89. David Austin

    You can’t cancel, I need closer!

  90. melanie

    Please please please don’t cancel this show. I just discovered this show on Netflix and its amazing! I couldn’t wait to watch season 4! Now I discovered this info. Soooo sad! Please find away to keep it on.

  91. Laraine Harmon

    I surely hope that Showtime reconsiders a 4th season. This is one of the best series that I have ever watched. I though the authenticity was spectacular and the actors also kept me rapt with attention. Can’t get any better than Jeremy Irons as the Pope. His mannerism’s were so papal. Francois Arnaud as Cesare was absolutely pleasing to the eye. I was looking forward to seeing him again.

  92. cathy peck

    The acting is rich and the content stirring….historical content valuable. WHAT A SHAME TO LOSE IT…loved it.

  93. melissa

    the only reason I even have Showtime is to watch the Borgias

  94. Elizabeth

    I love this show and have learned so much history by watching it. Please bring it back and bring it to a proper historical ending like was done for The Tutors. At least you let Henry the 8th come to an Historical ending and gave closure to the storyline. It is unfair to the viewing public to leave these Historical events hanging without a proper ending. Please reconsider and bring it back.

  95. Dee

    Nooooooooooooooo! I’ been waiting a whole year to see the next season

  96. Bill Cope

    Bring it back!! Best show on TV!!

  97. Bruce

    Truly amazed that a show with such a good story line was canceled. Great acting by a great cast. Showtime made a big mistake but it’s my loss.

  98. Fionna

    I’ve been waiting patiently to see what happens next…am sick to hear it’s been cancelled! I was going to reinstate my subscription to Showtime, but NOT NOW!

    Can’t you just make a Special, to wrap it up for us?

  99. sherry

    I cannot believe the quality of this series is going to be sacked due to costs: find a way around them and give us back the Borgias!!! I love that series and HAVE to see season 4. PLEASE!

  100. T

    love this series – give me season 4

  101. Lisa

    I never express my feeling about TV series on any website. But I have to about this one. You have all the sets already built! All the costumes made! You have the perfect array of actors. TOO EXPENSIVE!? You have already spent the money!! Plus you have the sets and costumes from the Tudors, you can reuse a lot of it.
    We Need you to finish Borgias story. We NEED the rest of the Seasons and episodes until the story is complete. Showtime s*cks! You start these amazing TV Series and then cancel them when we begin to get hooked. I am done with Showtime if they done at least finish the Borgias story.

  102. Juan

    You just cant leave us hanging like that. You have to at least give us a ending.

  103. Deborah

    What blatant disregard for the your viewers. Obviously professionalism is non existent! Completion is the least you can do!!!!

    • Pj

      Couldn’t agree more. Showtime needs to listen to their viewers. This is unbelievable !!! Shame on you Showtime. I suggest you remove your collective heads from your *%#> and finish this series the way the fans and the cast and crew deserve

  104. Tom J.

    Great show, hopefully they will reconsider.

  105. Tess

    I hate that the show is cancelled!! You can’t just leave the story like this without letting us know how things turn out. It’s a GREAT show with great actors and I would like to see it continue.

  106. Udog

    Well, so much for Showtime. I no longer need it. The Borgias was the only thing it had worth watching.

  107. Norm

    MUST C TV – one of the best shows of all time, don’t let it fall flat with the final scene being incest but finish the story at least if you’re not going to give us more than one more year.

  108. Micki

    Noooooooooo. Quality show with quality writing, acting, costumes, backgrounds, everything – each episode is like a movie and always ends too soon, I can’t believe they would consider ending this mid-story….bring it back!

  109. Dawn

    no please you must carry on we need a season 4

  110. Wallace

    I have been watching this program from its inception, it is great piece of TV movie making, please do not cancel this great work of art.

  111. Rose

    I can’t believe the show is cancelled without a final episode . I was so looking forward to season 4.
    Why should I keep Showtime?

  112. So disappointed

    OMG show time please return with a season 4 of the borgias
    This show is as good as sparticus. Expensive yea probably the gowns
    And the time to make everything can be costly
    We may not be hbo viewers but I love this show
    It open up a window for to how it really was. Back than
    The drama was like a a soap opera with forbidden love
    Double crossing descent envy. Guts gory the makings
    Of a show that would be watched for a long time.
    I mean there was a lot if enemies to be made. For borgias
    And what michelto can he ever be happy. What abt lucraza she is
    In intense love with her brother. But he as well can we not find out
    What is next?can we not see where their lives turn out to be ? How can u
    Robb us from this joy.

  113. Margaret Ann McIntosh

    It is a stunning series! Well written, interesting, informative, a portion of our history, well acted, sensual, yet not without good taste. Interesting scenery, locations and sets. A highly appealing series. There is nothing equal. The mass population of viewers want something to delve into and got some benefit from watching. It’s in such good taste with massive appeal. Please renew!!!!

  114. Judih

    I will be getting show time if they bring the borgias back. All my friends are hooked on it off of netflix. They want show time now.

  115. elisa

    History has closure on the Borgias – we needed it also and must have it. The most intelligent series produced and exceptionally well acted by all the actors. It was a pleasure to watch and it was a great food for the brain, specially if one is interested in history.

    If network wants to have devoted followers, then Showtime MUST finish the story of The Borgias. Saying it is costly is a poor way out. One must finish what one starts. Even though it may be costly, Showtime has other shows that produce a great deal of money for them. Life is not just profits – it is also about respect. If Showtime wants our families to give them respect, then bring bck the final season of The Borgias. Remember, we all pay extra to our cable providers to watch their network.

  116. Thomas Brown

    I just finished Season 3. Don’t leave me hanging.

  117. martha

    I cannot believe we’ll never know the end of this family. Please do continue it. I really enjoyed it and thought it to be the best!!!
    Martha

  118. Paul

    After watching your previews for upcoming shows, absent any mention of ‘The Borgia’s', I went to this website and found you aren’t renewing for a 4th season. Very disappointing! I found ‘The Borgia’s’ quite captivating and looked forward to each new episode.

    You are currently presenting ‘Penny Dreadful’, one of the most disgusting programs you have ever aired. I truly hope ‘Penny Dreadful’ doesn’t make it past it’s 1st season!

  119. Stacy

    Cannot believe they are canceling. I was waiting for the final season and the resolution!

  120. christinegonzales

    i renewed showtime just to watch the 4th borgias! now i find out it is OVER!! guess i unscribe to showtime! atleast bring the 2 hour movie and don’tleave us hanging!

  121. Waddles

    I’m about to finish Season 3, I need to know what happens!!!

  122. Bobbie

    I didn’t even know this show existed, I just happened upon it. I power watched all three seasons this week and I’m hooked just to find it cancelled. I know tons of people that love this kind of show if it were marketed to the right audience. I never saw one advertisement for this show prior to watching it :( I’m very sad it’s over

  123. Dura Lex

    Ugh are you kidding me! I’m obsessed with this show and they’re not renewing? It’s a sexy as historical drama – they should’ve renewed!

  124. LinziC

    This is my favourite show of all time. I am a huge fan of historical dramas, especially ones portrayed so well. Jeremy Irons- amazing, not to mention the actors who played Cesare, Lucrezia, and Michelleto (probably not spelling that right). All of them pulled me in. I felt like I was actually there. I know that in a day in age when TV is infested with reality tv and other such crap, it’s hard to imagine there are intelligent people left in the US, but we are here. Maybe if there were more intelligent programming out there people wouldn’t be stuck with such ignorant shows, and they’d end up a bit smarter. I’ve cancelled our cable because even my old favs like History, Discovery, and the Military Channel have been over run with crap. Watched the last season of The Borgias and that was it. Very sad.
    Maybe the 2hr. movie? Please????

  125. P. Stephens

    Really hope theres a season 4, Love it.. I agree at least have a movie, the story line isn’t finished yet, it still leaves you hanging, not gooood…

  126. Rick

    Gentlemen, this show is as good as Game of Thrones. Maybe better? The acting is awesome. I cannot believe this show is viewed by only 1MIL. Bring it BACK!

  127. Brenda Parham

    I hate that the Borgias are not coming back! I subscribe to Showtime for only 2 shows, Borgias and Homeland. They are the only shows worth watching on Showtime!

  128. Nasha Greene

    I love the show. Please don’t stop it!! Please!!

  129. sue

    The really great shows are cancelled, to be replaced by trash reality (not so reality); The educated and appreciated viewers, are the one percenters. The one million viewers, who know good acting, set design, costumes; The rest are the viewers who can appreciate something silly like ” the bachelor” or “say yes to the dress”. It drives me crazy that the networks lower themselves to the lowest viewer mentality.
    Sue

  130. jackie

    I love that show! I have been anxiously awaiting season 4 and I Google to find out when it would start and I find out it is canceled!?!!! Wtf !! It was a great show. I loved all the actors in it, especially Jeremy Irons. Bring it back please, Showtime!

  131. DJ

    Cancellation of the Borgias was not a very wisely thought through decision.

  132. Roy

    C’mon Showtime finish season 4, and end the damn story!

  133. Charlene

    Wonderful, gripping, binge worthy television!

  134. James

    I dropped Showtime immediately when I heard the Borgias is cancelled. Bad call, Showtime.

  135. Ludmila Murphy

    Love that show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
