Six wives, four seasons – The Tudors pick up the pace

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – The Tudors will not last as long as Henry VIII had wives – six seasons, or one season for each wife – but it will come close.
The Tudors will likely last four seasons, Robert Greenblatt, entertainment president of the U.S. pay-TV channel Showtime said over the weekend.
The Tudors’ second season concluded on Showtime last month, and will air on CBC-TV in the fall. Last week, the sprawling historical saga that stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the 16th century King of England earned a pair of Emmy nominations, for its casting and costumes. CBC is one of The Tudors international co-producers.
Henry VIII had six wives. They were, in order, Catherine of Aragon (annulled), Anne Boleyn (executed), Jane Seymour (died after giving birth to Henry’s son), Anne of Cleves (annulled), Katherine Howard (executed), and Catherine Parr (outlived Henry).
“As we know, the wives are limited,” Greenblatt said. “The first two seasons we did feature a wife per season, but the story will accelerate a little bit after that. The third season will be the next two, Anne of Cleves and Jane Seymour.”
That would be Jane Seymour, the historical figure, and not Jane Seymour the actress.
“I love meeting people who think Jane Seymour, the actress, is in the show,” Greenblatt said. “They know nothing about history.”
The final season, Greenblatt said, “will be the final two wives.”
