Starz Renews Kelsey Grammer's Boss - Prior to Its Season 1 Premiere!

The wily Chicago mayor played by Kelsey Grammer has received Starz’s vote — of confidence.

Starz has renewed Grammer’s new drama Boss for a second cycle, ahead of it’s Oct. 21 series premiere.

Boss stars the Frasier alum as Tom Kane, a cutthroat Chicago mayor who is protecting dark secret that, if revealed, could ultimately destroy his career.

This isn’t the first time the cabler has pulled the trigger on an early pickup: Starz ordered a second installment of its flagship series Spartacus: Blood and Sand before its 2010 debut.

Production on Boss‘ second term is slated to begin in early 2012.

    Wow! Must be good!

  2. Chris says:

    Hopefully this means Kelsey has found a stable post-Frasier program, after the likes of Hank and Back To You (Which should of never been cancelled) failed.

  3. Ben Kabak says:

    I seriously LOVE Kelsey. He can do no wrong

    • Faith says:

      I adore, love and respect Kelsey Grammar. He’s the most brilliant, glorious American actor we have in this country! I’d watch him in anything available!

  4. Lisa says:

    Kelsey Grammer should of stayed out of politics. IMHO
    Ever since he became a mouthpiece for the Republican Party and is a regular on Fox News every show he has been on has tanked.

  5. Joe Jackson says:

    What does that say about Torchwood

  6. Tania says:

    Is Torchwood coming back? I certainly hope so.

    • BHM1304 says:

      From what I’ve seen reported, “Torchwood” will come back when and if Russel Davies wants to make more episodes. The ball is in his hands. Starz got the ratings it wanted but it is all up to Davies and whether he wishes it to continue on Starz.

  7. Jon says:

    The reason Torchwood wasn’t renewed was because this whole American thing was only supposed to be for a season. Starz has stated that the future of the series is completely with the creator.

  8. Lisa says:

    Kelsey Grammer has his own show? Good luck with that (sarcasm).

  9. MichelleR says:

    The evil picture is pretty much what I think the painting in Kelsey Grammer’s attic looks like anyhow.

  10. Kasper says:

    I loved Back To You, such a shame it got cancelled. It’s just great to see Kelsey Grammer back on screen, he’s awesome.

  11. Fahad says:

    the first episode was awesome. it is in the same league as dexter but with a different genre. and kelsey grammer is like the dexter of boss. i salute starz for gifting us “boss”.
