Jeremy Irons returns as the ruthless patriarch Pope Alexander VI in the explosive new season of the Showtime Original Series THE BORGIAS. After exacting vicious punishment on all those who opposed them, the original crime family is at the apex of their power and influence – and with the world around them embroiled
in war and turmoil, they will continue to exploit their allies, silence their critics, and solidify their legacies – but each in a different way. Rodrigo (Pope Alexander)– bored by his embarrassment of riches – doffs his papal robes in favor of a commoner’s dress to pursue a salacious life outside the confinement of Vatican walls. Cesare mercilessly continues to seek to prove his worth and ends up committing the one, unforgivable sin. Lucrezia, scorned by an abusive husband and left reeling by unrequited love, becomes hell-bent on vengeance. And Juan, unable to escape his mortal destiny, pays the ultimate price for crossing the line with his own flesh and blood. The seemingly unbreakable bonds of family will be tested like never before and this time, no one will emerge unscathed.
