The White Queen: Starz Considering Sequel Series

the white queen season 2At today’s Starz portion of the TCA Winter Press Tour, CEO Chris Albrecht said that the cable channel is considering a sequel to The White QueenThe White Princess.

According to Deadline, he said, “We’re working with [The White Queen screenwriter] Emma Frost on the stories… We will not have BBC as part of it. We are interested, if the stars align, in a sequel to The White Queen.

The limited series apparently performed well for Starz but was less successful for the BBC which co-produced. The latter has decided not to continue with the property.

Like the original series, The White Princess would be based on the book by historical novelist Philippa Gregory.

What do you think? Did you like The White Queen? Would you like to see a sequel?

    It wold be great. I have read most of her books, and the Tudor dynasty and it was nice to see on screen pre-Tudor. I hope it takes place these women are such strong people.

    I would be through the roof; thrilled!!! The white queen was phenomenal!!! Devestated at the thought of it not going on forever, let alone not even just one more season.

    No one does Period Drama like the BBC, NO ONE! But if it had ALL the original actors in it, I might consider..
