Starz Renews 'Boss' Before Season 1 Even Premieres

'Boss,' Kelsey Grammer's return to scripted TV, has received a Season 2 pick-up before Season 1 has even hit the airwaves.

That means 10 new episodes (in addition to Season 1's eight) of the Farhad Safinia-created series will eventually hit the airwaves.

"The first time we read Farhad's script, we knew we had to make 'Boss,'" Chris Albrecht, CEO and president of Starz, said in a statement. "With each episode, the story grew richer, and the cast continued to turn in breakthrough performances.

"Led by Kelsey and Farhad, this creative team is giving us dramatic storytelling at its very best. For our viewers, we felt it important to start working on the next season as soon as possible."

Grammer stars as Chicago's powerful mayor Tom Kane (Grammer). His character will be threatened with a secret that could topple him.
