There's going to be lots more anarchy in the monarchy!
E!'s hit series The Royals has been renewed for season three (long live the queen!).
"We are incredibly proud of the success of The Royals," Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Original Programming & Development, said in a statement today. "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."
"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 Royals, E!'s first scripted series by creator Mark Schwahn, is currently in its second season and follows the dramatic exploits of England's royal family following the king's murder.
The stellar cast is led by Elizabeth Hurley as the calculating Queen Helena. She is joined by William Moseley as the vengeful Prince Liam, Alexandra Park as an uncontrollable Princess Eleanor, Tom Austen as the Prince's devious bodyguard Jasper Frost, Oliver Milburn as the troubled head of the royal security and Jake Maskall as the newly-crowned and universally despised King Cyrus.
Lydia Rose Bewley, Andrew Bicknell, Victoria Ekanoye, Poppy Corby-Tuech, Simon Thomas and Scott Maslen co-star along with Joan Collins as the Grand Duchess of Oxford.
Get ready for lots more drama for TV's fiercest fictional royal family!
Watch The Royals Sunday at 10 p.m., only on E!
