The good news is that Showtime's The Tudors, starring dreamy Jonathan Rhys Meyers as crazyass King Henry VIII, has been picked up for a fourth season to debut in spring 2010, according to the network. The bad news is that it will be its final season, wrapping up the saga of the king best known for either killing, exiling or otherwise mentally torturing his many wives and the members of his court over the years.
Though the fourth season is set to wrap up the story of the megalomaniac madman, it might not be the end of The Tudors per se. Read on...
Executive producer Michael Hirst recently told us this hopeful tidbit: "By calling the series The Tudors, we've at least given ourselves the possibilities of doing other Tudors. Elizabeth has been done to death, but Mary and Edward haven't, and even Henry's father hasn't."
As for season four, 10 one-hour eps are planned and will focus on the turbulent relationships with King Henry's last two wives, Catherine Howard and Catherine Parr, and the leader's descent into madness.
