Showtime Axes The Borgias

By Allison Moore

Washington, D.C. (June 6, 2013) -- Showtime has cancelled the period drama, The Borgias, after three seasons, writes USA Today.

The series finale, which stars Jeremy Irons as Pope Alexander VI, will air on June 16.

USA Today writes that The Borgias was watched by roughly 800,000 per episode, which was about the same as season two. But show creator, Neil Jordan, who directed The Crying Game, was sanguine about the show's end:

"I never thought I would make a cable series and have enjoyed every minute of it," Jordan said in a statement. "For a variety of reasons we won't be doing a fourth season, but "The Prince" (the series finale) 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."
