Final season confirmed for Tudors
Showtime confirms the fourth and final season of its lavish period drama starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
Showtime has confirmed what was tipped back in January: that there is just one more season of its lavish period drama, The Tudors.
The network has renewed the series for a fourth and final sexy season of 10 episodes -two more than season three.
The new season will follow marriages to Catherine Howard and Catherine Parr, continuing continue the show’s storytelling format of King Henry VIII going through two wives per season.
“I’m thrilled to complete the saga of Henry VIII as reconceived by Michael Hirst,” Showtime president Robert Greenblatt said. “He and (star) Jonathan Rhys Meyers have breathed new life into the costume drama by making it both modern in sensibility but also faithful to history. I think we proved that even after 500 years, this is a great story.”
Creator Michael Hirst will have single-handedly written all 38 episodes of the saga (lookout, David E. Kelley!).
His next project will revolve around the Camelot legends for Showtime.
Two seasons of The Tudors have so far aired in Oz, with the fourth to screen in the US in spring.
