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.
