The new series of the Borgias starts on April 14th in the USA. I love this show and the trailers and promos for season 3 look great. Anyone else going to be watching?

I can't wait!! I binge watched the first two seasons I loved them so much. I found the second season to be particularly amazing. The trailer looks like the family will be upping the ante even more so than before in terms of treachery and debauchery.

Its a great show., best period drama IMO since the Tudors but seems to suffer in the UK from poor advertising, Sky for example hardly ever advertised it all last season.

I really enjoyed season 2 also. Looking forward to season 3. Also The White Queen on BBC1 starting in May should be worth a watch.

All things Papal in the news at the moment and naturally Showtime have utilised this bit of free promotion for season 3

And The White Queen incidentally stars Jeremy Irons son Max (who BTW is gorgeous)

Sweet baby Jesus and the orphans I just watched episode 3 today. To say this season is juicier than anything that has gone before would be an understatement.

This season is amazing! I watched episode 4 and I feel like my heart has been pulled out of my chest and stomped on - great writing, and so well played by Arnaud and Grainger. I felt like watching most of it from behind the couch.

Im trying to figure out if Neil Jordan is a true evil genius lol

Reports are saying that this season may be the last

http://www.digitalspy.ie/ustv/news/a...th-season.html

The ratings this season are not as high as the first season but are in and around the same as season two so I don't know what the issue is. Maybe it's a creative decision but if they're following actual history there's still quite a bit of story to tell with

If this series is the end, I wonder will they do what they did with Rome when it was cancelled and squeeze decades worth of storyline into the few final episodes?

I'd like to see a season four, but at least they are talking about wrapping it up neatly if they don't - nice to see fans considered for once

Looks like we might end a two hour movie to finish up

Has anyone watched the series finale yet? It's unfortunate that they're not getting a chance to wrap up the stories with the 2 hour movie as the ending was quite unsatisfactory as a series finale. The episode itself was quite impressive with

but everything was basically left up in the air for the characters with little or no resolution for any of them bar

It seems Showtime are refusing to do a 2-hour movie as they've deemed it too expensive, which seems to be the main reason they've given for cancelling the show.

Here's some quotes from Neil Jordan about how the series would have ended had a 4th series or two hour movie gone ahead.
