The network picked up The Borgias for a second season, it was announced Monday.
Ratings: Borgias posts solid debut
"The Borgias has become Sunday night appointment viewing for a broad swath of our subscribers,"  Showtime's entertainment head David Nevins said in a statement. "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."
The series stars Jeremy Irons as the corrupt Rodrigo Borgia, whose family builds an empire on sin and backstabbing. The Season 1 finale airs on Sunday, May 22 at 10/9c.
