Starz’s critically acclaimed – yet ratings challenged – political drama series Boss won’t be returning for a third season, the network has announced. “After much deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to not proceed with 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.”
Boss was created by Farhad Safinia and tells the story of Tom Kane, the Mayor of Chicago, who has been diagnosed with a degenerative illness and is intent on keeping it secret from his friends, family and most of all his political opponents. The drama series stars Kelsey Grammer as Tom Kane, Connie Nielsen as Meredith Kane, Kathleen Robertson as Kitty O’Neill, Hannah Ware as Emma Kane, Martin Donovan as Ezra Stone and Jeff Hephner as Ben Zajac. The series is produced by Lionsgate Television, Grammnet Productions and Category 5 Entertainment, with Farhad Safinia, Kelsey Grammer, Gus Van Sant, Richard Levine, Lyn Green, Brian Sher and Stella Stopler serving as executive producers.
