A few months ago, fans of Showtime's 'The Borgias' were dismayed to learn that the cable network had opted not to proceed with additional episodes of the religious period drama, even turning down the opportunity to wrap things up with a two-hour production, similar to how 'The Big C' managed to reach its ultimate end. Now, however, creator and showrunner Neil Jordan will get his chance to wrap up the series by releasing an e-book, 'The Borgia Apocalypse,' to reveal his vision of the series' end.
About a month ago, we heard the news that Showtime's papal drama 'The Borgias' might not make it to a fourth season, as series creator and showrunner Neil Jordan had instead thought to wrap up the series with a two-hour movie at Showtime's discretion.
