The Tudors

Francois Rousseau/Showtime

This news doesn't bode well for Anne Boleyn, but fans of The Tudors can bow down in thanks.

Considering King Henry VIII has four more wives to plow through, Showtime has renewed the lusty period drama for a third season. Production is set to begin in Ireland in June, with episodes to debut in 2009.

The series, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the heir-craving royal, is currently halfway through its second season.

Natalie Dormer's Anne, having given birth to daughter Elizabeth, is currently on the chopping block, a plot development that, as you history buffs out there know, will pave the way for the rise of the more reproductively successful yet equally doomed Jane Seymour (Anita Briem).
