As a new pope acknowledged for his humility and compassion for the poor begins his papacy, Bravo presents the exclusive return of one of history’s most notoriously corrupt and decadent papal families, THE BORGIAS. Ranking as the #1 program on Bravo during its second season, the Canadian co-production and multiple Canadian Screen Award winner returns for a third season on Sunday, April 14 at 10 p.m. ET. Academy Award-winner Jeremy Irons returns to THE BORGIAS in his Golden Globe®-nominated role of Pope Alexander as he clings to power to preserve the family legacy and establish the papacy as a hereditary monarchy across Italy. However, his children are poised to wield their own power as military prince and daring guerrilla fighter Cesare (Montreal’s François Arnaud) fights to secure his own ascension at any cost, and Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger) enters the dangerous fray of Neapolitan politics and learns the art of poisoning (visit bravo.ca for local broadcast times). THE BORGIAS is produced by Toronto’s Take 5 Productions.
