Starz’s “Boss” Axed, But May Get A TV Movie

Starz’s Chicago political drama “Boss” starring Kelsey Grammer will not be getting a third season, but that doesn’t mean the story is quite over yet.

In an official statement today, Starz says “After much deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to not proceed with (a third season of) Boss. We remain proud of this award-winning show, its exceptional cast and writers, and are grateful to Kelsey Grammer, Farhad Safinia and our partners at Lionsgate TV.”

Now there’s word of discussions between Starz and Lionsgate TV about potentially doing a two-hour movie that would wrap up the story. The second season has been averaging around 2.4 million across all platforms per episode and delivered the network its first major awards nominations.

With the cancellation of “Boss”, “Spartacus” becomes the only Starz original series so far to go beyond two seasons.
