‘Limited series’ drama The Spanish Princess has been ‘expanded’ for a further 8 episodes.
The series with Charlotte Hope and Ruairi O’Connor will also conclude in 2020.
“We are thrilled to tell the next chapter of Catherine of Aragon’s story as she negotiates war, politics and marriage to the most dangerous King of England,” said executive producers Emma Frost and Matthew Graham. “As a company that always produces compelling and dynamic projects, Starz has been a great creative partner, and we look forward to concluding Catherine’s journey with them.”
Starz COO Jeffrey Hirsch added, “Emma and Matthew have created an alluring portrait of one of the most familiar narratives in English history. Viewers are intrigued by Catherine of Aragon’s story, and this eight-episode conclusion will give us the opportunity to tell it in its entirety.”
The Spanish Princess screens in Australia on Stan.
