The last curve of 2012 is bringing tons of shows to the lists of cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012, and lately, specially to the axed ones. Now Starz cancels Boss after two seasons of air.
The departure of Boss after only two seasons makes Starz room for a new drama show to cover the slot, but, although acclaimed by the critics, only one show from that premium cabler has gone over two seasons: Spartacus.
There´s a possibility of a wrap up movie for Boss to tie any loose end left in a two hour event, but that´s yet to be announced.
What was Boss about? Season 2 Plot Synopsis
After several close calls, both politically and personally, Mayor Tom Kane (Kelsey Grammer) still maintains his powerful hold over the city of Chicago. By suppressing the physical symptoms of his secret debilitating brain disease, Kane is left with intense and uncontrollable neurological side effects.
While Kane breaks ground on the O’Hare Airport expansion effort, he looks toward the next endeavor to complete his legacy. With the astute counsel of his new aides Mona Fredricks (Sanaa Lathan) and Ian Todd (Jonathan Groff), he plans to remove and rebuild a long forgotten housing project, now home to gang activity and rampant corruption. Kane is committed to his unorthodox agenda, even if it means bucking his political machine to do it.
Kane’s wife, Meredith (Connie Nielsen), knows about Kane’s illness and finds herself questioning, for the first time, whether she herself holds the key to preserving her position of power. Their daughter, Emma (Hannah Ware), is a product of their loveless, political marriage. Emma struggles with her family and her addictions as she is forced to sever her relationship with her lover, Darius (Rotimi).
As Kane’s protégé, Ben Zajac (Jeff Hephner), enters the race for governor, it’s tough going without Kane’s former aide, Kitty O’Neil (Kathleen Robertson). In the meantime, Kitty finds herself in an unexpected relationship and is forced to reevaluate what she wants and must reconcile that with who she really is.
Sam Miller (Troy Garity), now the editor of the newspaper, has a hard time remaining tethered to an office when he’d much rather be reporting on the mayor’s wrong-doings.
The odds continue to stack against him, but Mayor Kane won’t go down without a fight.
