CHICAGO — "Boss," the Chicago-based political drama led by Kelsey Grammer, will not return for a third season, the cable network Starz said Tuesday.
"After much deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to not proceed with 'Boss'," Starz said. "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."
While the show won't have a third season to wrap up story lines, "Boss" fans may be in luck. Deadline.com reported Tuesday that the show will close with a two-hour movie.
The ratings were low, but steady, throughout its two seasons. The show earned critical acclaim, with Grammer snagging a Golden Globe for his performance as Chicago Mayor Tom Kane.
