'The Tudors' Renewed and Set to End in Fourth Season


The saga of King Henry VIII will end in the fourth season of 'The Tudors' where his madness shows up along with his last two wives.

Showtime has set the future of "The Tudors", ordering another season and setting a final season. The series about the life of King Henry VIII and the women surrounding him, will be back for a fourth season but will end after that.

While the third season which has been running since April 5 is focusing on Henry's relationship with his third and fourth wives Jane Seymour and Anne of Cleves respectively, the fourth season will highlight on his encounter with his fifth and sixth wives, Catherine Howard and Catherine Parr, plus his deterioration that ends up in madness.

The final is set to bow in 2010 for 10 one-hour episodes with the production kicked off in June in Dublin. Michael Hirst, the executive producer as well as creator, will tackle the script himself.

"I'm thrilled to complete the saga of Henry VIII as re conceived by Michael Hirst," Showtime Entertainment president Robert Greenblatt says. "He and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers have breathed new life into the costume drama by making it modern in sensibility but also faithful to history. I think we proved that even after 500 years, this is a great story."

The renewal of "The Tudors" comes on the heels of the cancellation of some pilots. Last week, Showtime has axed the plan to pick up Matthew Perry's comedy "End of Steve", "The L Word" spin-off "The Farm", Tim Robbins' drama "Possible Side Effects" and Jenji Kohan's comedy "Ronna and Beverly".

    I also wish that the Tudors show would have proceded to and through the glorious reign of Elizabeth I feel as a viewer caught up in the history but not given a true conclusion. The last episode lent itself to questions with no answers. As colorful as Henry was the procession to his throne was interesting as was Edwards' and Mary's reign which could easily lead to Elizabeth 's reign which would rival Herny's reign in interest and importance. Sorry to see it end
