It's official — Showtime's The Tudors will return for a fourth season next year. But don't get too attached: As the show's creator suggested at the TCA press tour in January — when he pointed out that Henry VIII would be out of wives fairly soon — the fourth season will be the show's last.
This season of the show follows Henry (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) through his relationships with Jane Seymour and Anne of Cleves, leaving two Catherines (Howard and Parr) for the final year. That last season may be even more dramatic than the rest, culminating with Henry's descent into madness. The final 10 episodes will air in Spring 2010.
The Tudors has performed well in the ratings so far this season, even becoming one of the few shows to beat a competing program on HBO when it fared better than In Treatment the week of its premiere. So, will you see this take on the saga of Henry VIII through to its end? And which actresses do you have in mind for the final two wives?
