Starz Orders Eight More Episodes of 'The Spanish Princess'

Starz has today extended the original limited series The Spanish Princess with an order for eight additional episodes. The new episodes will debut in 2020.

"We are thrilled to tell the next chapter of Catherine of Aragon's story as she negotiates war, politics and marriage to the most dangerous King of England," said showrunners Emma Frost and Matthew Graham. "As a company that always produces compelling and dynamic projects, Starz has been a great creative partner, and we look forward to concluding Catherine's journey with them."

"Emma and Matthew have created an alluring portrait of one of the most familiar narratives in English history," added Jeffrey Hirsch, COO, Starz. "Viewers are intrigued by Catherine of Aragon's story, and this eight-episode conclusion will give us the opportunity to tell it in its entirety."

Frost and Graham will continue to run the show, while stars Charlotte Hope and Ruairi O'Connor will also return.
