Please renew Borgias.


Anna Douglass June 15, 2013 at 1:11 pm

The Borgias is an amazing show and should be returning. The acting is supurb and
the storyline is incredable.
Renew, renew, dont let us hang. Perhaps it is not advertised anough or effectively.
I have not seen a better show in years.

Renew …….

Tonight’s episode was sooo good and following it is when I found out that next week is now a series finale instead of the season finale and I am completely shocked!!! Season 3 has been the best season yet and for it to be canceled so abruptly makes no sense at all!!! And for what Ray Donovan another present day mob family show??? The show and the show’s fans deserve so much better than an abrupt ending! They actually deserve at least another season or more, and a planned out, thought out series ending!!!

Perhaps Showtime would show a small bit of respect for their viewers if people continue canceling when they pull this kind of thing. This is a true story, Finish the lives of the people! Oh well I can use my Showtime money on something else.

Would love a fourth season but would settle for a two-hour movie. It’s so good, I hate to see it end so abruptly. It’s so well-done, I feel it deserves better closure. And so do we who love it.


Joel Rosenberg June 5, 2013 at 2:46 am

Please come back with a full fourth season, and even beyond! This is brilliantly told, cinematically breathtaking, and exquisitely acted. I’ve been especially hooked on the 3rd season, but it has only deepened the tale told in the first two seasons, which I now want to watch again. I regard your contemplated signing off with a movie a cop-out–why on earth would you want to deprive viewers of a further intricate development of this rich segment of history? Is it all about cost-cutting? I think you should carry the story all the way to the death of Pope Alexander, but I’ll be grateful for at least another season.


Becky June 4, 2013 at 6:46 pm

Please renew!!!


Sue Lowe Ponder June 4, 2013 at 12:39 am

My husband and I love the Borgias and feel it should be renewed. Timothy Irons acting is fabulous. I think season 3 was the best of the series and each episode improved to the last one. RENEW


chickles June 3, 2013 at 9:56 pm

having watched every season 3 episode but “The Prince”, don’t see any option other than at least 5 more episodes to complete the story.


C P June 3, 2013 at 6:41 pm

My family and I — LOVE “THE BORGIAS” !!!!!!!!!!! WANT A 4TH SEASON.


Fay June 3, 2013 at 8:49 am

This is the most epic series i have ever watch. All the similar series got season 4, in Showtime, there is no precedence in leaving a show without finale at all. Tudors got S4 with much lower ratings, and the Borgias are a much better production in any level.I trully believe that Showtime and Niel Jordan will RESPECT THEIR VIEWERS alongside the globe. PLEASE RESPECT YOUR AUDIENCE AND YOUR WORK. RENIEW THE SHOW.
