The reign of “The Borgias” is at an end.
Showtime’s historical drama created and written by Neil Jordan (“The Crying Game”) will conclude with its final episode on Sunday, June 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime. “Borgias” won’t return for a fourth season, but Jordan believes that the show has reached a natural conclusion point.
Jeremy Irons leads the cast as Pope Alexander VI, the manipulative patriarch of the titular dynasty. “The Borgias” also stars Joanne Whalley, Lotte Verbeek, Sean Harris, Thure Lindhart, Gina McKee, Peter Sullivan, Julian Bleach and Colm Feore.
The final episode, entitled “The Prince,” finds Alexander (Irons) and Cesare (François Arnaud) reuniting in hopes of creating a hereditary kingdom across the heart of Italy. The latter’s army assaults Catherina Sforza”s (Gina McKee) castle, while Cesare pulls more strings in order to be with Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger).
