Starz Cancles Boss After Two Seasons

Paul November 23, 2012 3

Well, Starz is trying to break into original series like its other more establish pay-channel brethren, HBO and Showtime, but it’s not always smooth sailing.

Though they’ve had luck with Spartacus, their series Boss hasn’t put up the sort of numbers to warrant renewal  The Kelsey Grammar-led show will end its run after two seasons. The season two premiere brought in only half the viewers of its season one opener, indicating support for the show had waned, rather than waxed over the course of the first season.

There’s now talk of a Boss movie to wrap up lose ends, but I think most of us can agree that such a project is highly unlikely to come to fruition.

Starz has plenty of other series on the docket from The White Queen to Magic City to Da Vinci’s Demons to the final season of Spartacus.

Any fans of the show? Are you disappointing its ending in this fashion?

    I am disappointed! Another show just ends with many unanswered questions. Loyalty to a series just doesn’t make sense anymore. The Killing ended much the same. There must be a way to conclude a drama without leaving so much unsaid

    I watched Season 1 and 2 back to back – loved it. The second series was even better than the first and once again, something really good has been axed when a third series could have been wholly justified – at least finish the story for goodness sake. This isn’t well known in the UK yet but everyone i have recommended it to has loved it. They just don’t give these good shows a chance.
