Get ready for more drama from the Renaissance! The Showtime series The Borgias, which is only four episodes into its second season, has just been picked up for a third season. So if you haven't already gotten your fix of watching Jeremy Irons glower, fear not, as there is bound to be plenty of more glowering to come.

The second season premiere of the drama series — about Pope Alexander VI and the powerful Italian Renaissance family — debuted to 43% fewer viewers than its Season 1 premiere. However, the show continues to be the highest-rated series on Showtime's current lineup. Plus, who doesn't like watching people in funny red hats?
