"After much deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to not proceed with 'Boss,'" the network said in statement on Tuesday. "We remain proud of this award-winning show, its exceptional cast and writers, and are grateful to Kelsey Grammer, Farhad Safinia and our partners at Lionsgate TV."

Access Hollywood has learned that there are discussions for a potential two-hour final episode of the series, to wrap up loose ends, but no deal has been made.

Also, the final season of "Spartacus" - "Spartacus: War of the Damned" -- hits the airwaves next year, along with Season 2 of the Miami drama, "Magic City."
