JEREMY Irons’ pe­riod drama The Bor­gias has been can­celled. Irons earned a Golden Globe nom­i­na­tion for his por­trayal of Pope Alexan­der VI in the Neil Jor­dandi­rected se­ries about a 16th cen­tury Ital­ian fam­ily dy­nasty. ‘‘I never thought I would make a ca­ble se­ries and have en­joyed ev­ery minute of it,’’ Jor­dan tells The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter. ‘‘For a va­ri­ety of rea­sons we won’t be do­ing a fourth sea­son . . . I want to thank Show­time for their un­stint­ing sup­port over the last three years, and look for­ward to work­ing with them in the fu­ture.’’ The forth­com­ing June 16 episode in the US will now serve as the se­ries fi­nale. The se­ries airs in Aus­tralia on pay TV’s SoHo chan­nel.
