Well, well… life is giving us goodness! Greatness in fact. What are we speaking of? One of our favorites, The Serpent Queen has been renewed for a second season!
STARZ just announced today its popular, critically acclaimed series “The Serpent Queen” will return for an eight-episode second season with Golden Globe® winner, two-time Academy Award® and two-time BAFTA Award-nominated actress Samantha Morton starring as ruthless ruler Catherine de Medici.
“The Serpent Queen is distinctly modern, darkly comedic and completely unexpected,” said Kathryn Busby, President, 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.”
We’re obsessed and scared of the series. Samantha Morton’s portrayal of Catherine de Medici is utterly delectable and we love it. Not to mention the amazing job that Liv Hill did as the young Catherine de Medici.
Season One of the series has also starred Colm Meaney , Kiruna Stamell, Barry Atsma, Alex Heath, Amrita Acharia, Enzo Cilenti, Antonia Clarke, Adam Garcia, Beth Goddard, Raza Jaffrey, Ray Panthaki, Nicholas Burns, Danny Kirrane, and Rupert Everett.
News of the renewal comes ahead of the series’ season one finale airing this Sunday, October 30 at midnight on the STARZ at 8:00 PM ET/PT in the U.S. and Canada.
