Kelsey Grammer's 'Boss' not picked up for Season 3

By Gina DiFalco,

Starz’s Boss, starring Kelsey Grammer, has been cancelled.

After only two seasons, the show hasn’t picked up for another. Although it didn’t have the best ratings, it did land Grammer a Golden Globe for his role as Chicago Mayor Tom Kane. The show also received a nomination for Best Drama; both accolades were the first for the pay cable network.

“After much deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to not proceed with [a third season of] 'Boss,'" the network said in a statement, The Huffington Post reports. "We remain proud of this award-winning show, its exceptional cast and writers, and are grateful to Kelsey Grammer, [creator] Farhad Safinia and our partners at Lionsgate TV."

Fans of the show may not need to worry about getting closure, however, as Deadline is reporting that the show could get a 2-hour movie that would wrap up the storyline.

Lionsgate TV and Starz are in discussions to bring the story to a close with the special event.

At the premiere of the show in October 2011, Boss got 659,000 viewers. But the Season 2 premiere saw a 52 percent decrease, as it debuted to 317,000 viewers this past August. However, the total amount for the weekend did average to 937,000 viewers.
