Boss: Canceled by Starz

at . Comments

Boss will not be elected for a third season.

The critically-acclaimed, albeit poorly rated, drama was canceled today by Starz following two seasons.

“After much deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to not proceed with Boss,” the network said in a statement. “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.”

Despite this move, Starz is upping its original programming in 2013. It will feature four new dramas on its schedule for the first time:

Da Vinci’s Demons, the final season of Spartacus: War of the Damned, Magic City Season 2 and the new pirate drama Black Sails.

I'm sure Kelsey Grammar's blaming some sort of liberal agenda/biase for his cancellation. He's a terrific actor but it bothered me to no end when he blamed his political affiliation for his perceived Emmy snub- not the fact that he was up against super talented actors in their prime. I really do think that Brian Cranston and Jon Hamm's method will be studied by actors for years to come.
Sorry about the rant but Kelsey Grammar's bitching really annoyed the crap out of me.


Boss was great but its ratings probably suffered due to the lack of sex and violence on other cable tv shows. I hope Kelsey Grammer finds a new show soon. He was brilliant in this.


I loved BOSS; makes me sad. Pirate drama?


I really enjoyed BOSS. I want at least one more episode to tie up all the loose ends.
