Starz Orders Second Season Of 'Boss' Before Series Debut

Publish date:

Starz has already renewed its yet-to-premiere drama Boss, ordering an additional 10 episodes of the series.

Set to premiere on Oct. 21, Boss stars Kelsey Grammer as influential Chicago Mayor Tom Kane, whose power is threatened by a terrible secret. Production on season two is set to begin in early 2012.

"The first time we read Farhad's script, we knew we had to make Boss," said Starz president and CEO Chris Albrecht. "With each episode, the story grew richer, and the cast continued to turn in breakthrough performances. Led by Kelsey and Farhad, this creative team is giving us dramatic storytelling at its very best. For our viewers, we felt it important to start working on the next season as soon as possible."

Boss is produced by Lionsgate Television and created by Farhad Safinia. Gus Van Sant directed the pilot.
