Well that didn't take long at all, did it?!
Showtime's latest series, The Borgias, which stars Jeremy Irons as the nasty-ass
honeybadger patriarch of the historical Borgia family, debuted earlier this month, but has reportedly already been renewed for a second season!
Apparently, the show has already delivered the best ratings for a new drama from the network in SEVEN YEARS, and in its premiere week alone, garnered over 3.71 million views!
According to network President David Nevins:
"The Borgias has become Sunday night appointment viewing for a broad swath of our subscribers. Neil Jordan's cleverly crafted tale of a 15th century papal family has proven quickly addictive. It's a tribute to his incredible skills as an auteur and to the extraordinary cast led by Jeremy Irons that this show fits so seamlessly into our line-up of quality shows."
Damn! We're going to have to check this one out!
Congratulations to the cast and crew! You guys clearly have created something of which to be proud!
