Showtime has picked up a third season of the hit television series The Borgias. David Nevins, the network’s President of Entertainment, made the announcement that they have ordered up another 10 episodes that will air in 2013.
‘The Borgias’ is currently in its second season with plenty of drama on the way. “As the series continues to unfold, the greatest existential threat to Alexander’s Papacy may not come from foreign adversaries or ambitious political operatives, but may linger within his most trusted inner circle – his family. The cunning Cesare engages his dark side; the profligate Juan turns murderous and ostracized by his family; and the increasingly independent Lucrezia refuses to be a pawn in her family’s continued quest for power.”
Production is slated to begin this summer with plans to film on location in both Hungary and Budapest with the super star cast of Jeremy Irons, François Arnaud, Holliday Grainger, Lotte Verbeek, Peter Sullivan, and more. Neil Jordan of ‘The Crying Game’ and ‘An Interview with A Vampire’ will continue to serve as the show’s creator executive producer, writer, and director of several upcoming episodes in season three.
