borgias-cancelled-renewed-showtimeYesterday was a bitterseet day for NBC Shows, since Late Night with Jimmy Fallon got renewed, and The Paul Reiser Show got cancelled, but today it was Showtime who brought some much anticipated news. The Borgias is renewed for season two.

Showtime has picked up a second season of its hit drama series The Borgias, it was announced today by David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc.  The series, which debuted earlier this month to critical and audience acclaim, delivered the best ratings for a new Showtime drama series in seven years and attracted 3.71 million viewers across multiple platforms (On Demand, replays and DVR) during its premiere week.  Season-to-date, The Borgias is pacing ahead of The Tudors season four, the series’ highest rated season ever.  Ten new episodes will go into production this summer to air in 2012.

You can still watch the first season of The Borgias airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT through its May 22nd season finale.

This is surely one of the best seasons in recent years when talking about new shows: The Borgias, The Killing, Breakout Kings, Drew Carey´s Improv-A-Ganza, Camelot, and a big large etcetera. Nice to see good quality TV as The Borgias getting a second season.
