E! has renewed their first original scripted series, The Royals, for a third season of drama, drugs and debauchery.
The series, which follows the personal lives of the fictional British royal family, will return for another season later this year with another 10-episode season. With the series being one of the top 3 new original scripted series of 2015, it’s no surprise that the network opted to bring Queen Helena (Elizabeth Hurley), King Cyrus (Jake Maskall), Princess Eleanor (Alexandra Park) and Prince Liam (William Moseley) back for another wild ride.
“We are incredibly proud of the success of The Royals,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Development of E! in a press release. “The series has captured fans and brought them into a regal world of sexy, fun drama. We can’t wait to see what season three will bring and what surprises are still in store as we enter the second half of season two.”
‘The Royals’ Set to Return for Third Season
“We are delighted by today’s pick-up announcement for season three of The Royals,” added Kevin Beggs, Lionsgate Television Group Chairman. “The Royals reflects the kind of original, noisy and provocative series that is a Lionsgate signature. We look forward to an all-new season of palace intrigue and badly behaved royals with our partners at E! and Universal Cable Productions.”
The latest season of the show has totally kicked the drama up a notch, delving deeper into the mystery of who killed King Simon, giving fans a front row seat to kick back and watch King Cyrus unravel, and following the prince and princess’ messy personal lives. We can’t wait to see how the show’s producers up the ante for season three. Our only request? More Duchess (Joan Collins) please! We can’t get enough of her!
New episodes of The Royals second season airs Sundays at 10pm on E!.
