Season 3 of “The Borgias,” starring Jeremy Irons as Pope Alexander VI, the patriarch of the infamous Borgia dynasty, has been rumored to be the last. The cancellation of “The Borgias” was first reported by Deadline. “It has been an honor to work on ‘The Borgias’ with the great Neil Jordan and the incomparable Jeremy Irons,” Showtime president of entertainment David Nevins said in a statement. “Neil has written almost every episode of this series.

His extraordinary storytelling, combined with Jeremy’s fascinating portrayal of the infamous Pope Alexander VI, has resulted in truly outstanding television that will be remembered for a long time. I am excited about future collaborations.”

Deadline reported in early May that Jordan is planning a “Borgias” film. “I’d like to finish it with a two-hour movie,” he told the British press during the campaign’s launch. “Another ten episodes is a bit much. I’ve planned a film that, if will shoot in June with the same cast, and finally, the Pope will die horribly.”

However, based on his statement below, it does not appear that the now-cancelled “Borgias” will be followed by a film.

“I never thought I’d make a cable series and have enjoyed every minute of it,” Jordan said in a statement following the cancellation of “The Borgias.” “We won’t be doing a fourth season for a variety of reasons, but ‘The Prince” did seem like the end of a journey for the family when I wrote and shot it.” Whatever bonded them as a family dies in this episode, and the family was always the center of the drama for me. I’d like to thank Showtime and David Nevins for their unwavering support over the last three years, and I look forward to continuing to collaborate with them.”
