Boss: Cancelled; No Season Three But…

Boss cancelled by StarzStarz has decided to cancel Boss after two seasons on the air. The Kelsey Grammer series won’t be returning for a third season but viewers may still get some resolution.

Boss revolves around Chicago Mayor Tom Kane (Grammer), a powerful man who struggles to stay on top while secretly battling a debilitating brain disease. Others in the cast include Karen Aldridge, Connie Nielsen, Kathleen Robertson, Martin Donovan, Jeff Hephner, and Hannah Ware.

The cable channel renewed the show for a second season a month before the series even premiered. Had they waited, they might have cancelled it instead. The ratings for the first season were underwhelming and the cast and crew knew that season two would have to do better for the show to survive.

It didn’t. The second season averaged 360,000 viewers and a 0.1 rating in the demo. The cancellation certainly doesn’t come as a surprise.

While there won’t be a third season of Boss, Lionsgate TV and Starz are having discussions about wrapping up the story with a two-hour movie.

What do you think? Are you sorry that Boss has been cancelled by Starz? Do you think they’ll really make a movie?

    Really enjoyed Boss. Just found it on Netflix. Yes, I’d like to see a movie that brings it to a conclusion. Corruption in politics is displayed with powerful dialogue and great acting.
    Sorry it was cancelled.

    I think it’s a great show, I just got done with all showing in 2 days.
    Maybe if it was on a channel that wasn’t one you had to pay to get it would done better.
    I never even knew it was out there to watch, I just got it on my Nexflex.

    I really liked it. Watched both seasons within about a week. Hoping there will be a finish to this – and don’t leave us dangling.
