Starz Renews 'The Serpent Queen' for Season 2

Ahead of its season finale on Sunday, Starz has today renewed its original drama series The Serpent Queen for a second season. The drama will return with 8 new episodes.

The drama stars Samanatha Morton, Liv Hill, Amrita Acharia, Barry Atsma, Enzo Cilenti, Sennia Nanua, Kiruna Stamell, Nicholas Burns, Beth Goddard, Raza Jaffrey, Danny Kirrane and Ray Panthaki.

Justin Haythe developed the drama. He executive produces with Francis Lawrence and Erwin Stoff. Lionsgate Television and 3 Arts Entertainment produce.

"The Serpent Queen is distinctly modern, darkly comedic, and completely unexpected," said Kathryn Busby, President of Original Programming, Starz. "Catherine de Medici's story is the perfect complement to our female-forward slate, and Samantha Morton's brilliant portrayal of this ruthless, charming and savvy queen anchors the whole production. We're thrilled to unveil more of her incredible life and reign in season two, which promises to be even more provocative and sublime."
