E! has a lot of faith in their first original series The Royals, giving the drama a season two renewal before season one even airs. The hour-long drama was created by Mark Schwahn and stars Elizabeth Hurley, Vincent Regan, William Moseley, and Alexandra Park as members of a fictional royal family. Season one will debut on March 15, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT.
Filming will take place on season two in London this spring.
“To renew this freshman series before its highly anticipated first season premiere underscores E!’s commitment to the scripted genre and our confidence and support of this groundbreaking and rule-breaking original series,” stated Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Development, E! “We’re thrilled to have Universal Cable Productions joining Lionsgate as a co-producing partner as we announce a second season pick-up for this scandalously fun series.’”
“We’re very proud that E! chose The Royals as its first original scripted series and delighted about this early season two pick-up,” added Kevin Beggs, Chairman, Lionsgate Television Group. “The cast and creative team are exceptional and E! has been a tremendous partner in supporting the creative direction of the series from day one.”
Love, hate, lust and revenge are taken to a delightfully decadent new level in this 60-minute drama series that goes inside a world where power is everything, limits do not exist, and trust is a luxury that no one can afford. Season two will go even deeper behind the pomp and ceremony where scandal continues to lurk, and all is fair in love and royalty.
