“The Borgias” fans have a little something to look forward to. The script for a two-hour movie follow-up to the Showtime series is being released as an eBook.
“Breaking #Borgias News! SHOWTIME and THE BORGIAS creator Neil Jordan are excited to announce the release of his new e-book, THE BORGIA APOCALYPSE, based on his original script for THE BORGIAS two-hour finale,” Showtime announced on Twitter. “THE BORGIA APOCALYPSE will be available this week via major e-retailers. We’re thrilled that the series’ loyal fans will have the opportunity to read Neil’s final farewell to one of history’s most infamous families.”
Fans of the show were not thrilled when the network decided to end the series after three seasons. They came together with a paid protester and flying banner in an attempt to save the show. Showtime entertainment president David Nevins previously told The Hollywood Reporter that the movie follow-up was not happening because the network needed to put their resources into “things that you think have future growth.”
