"The Borgias," Showtime's drama about the infamous Borgia dynasty controlled by Pope Alexander VI, will end its run with its third season finale on June 16.

Creator and executive producer Neil Jordan said he recently decided not to proceed with a fourth season.

"I never thought I would make a cable series and have enjoyed every minute of it," said Jordan in a statement. "For a variety of reasons we won't be doing a fourth season, but 'The Prince' [the final episode] when I wrote and shot it did feel like an end of a journey for the family. Whatever bonded them as a family dies in this episode, and the center of the drama for me was always the family."

The show, which stars Jeremy Irons and shows Pope Alexander VI as a cunning and manipulative patriarch who builds a dynasty through corruption, was shot entirely on location in Budapest.
