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.

    A sequel is so necessary and a prequel too. English royal history is so fascinating and the white queen was an awesome miniseries. History told from a female perspective (herstory) a perspective rarely told. I watched it from beginning tom end in one sitting it was riveting . Please bring it on.

    Absolutely!!!! I will be so disappointed if there is not another season. You would be at least 2 more. The show was a success. I love the cast and I hoped we would get to see the union between Henry Tudor and Elizabeth of York and their story.

    I loved the series The White Queen and was saddened when it ended. It really portrayed how brutal and downright sadistic England’s nobility were in those days in history. A sequel would be tremendous!

    I would watch The White Queen/Princess sequel in a heartbeat! Not only did I think it was one of the best historical fiction drama’s I’ve ever seen. The way the history was perfectly intertwined with rumors and speculations at the time. Each episode kept getting better and better! There was so much going on in the world when Henry Tudor took the throne, and married Elizabeth of York! A series showing their union, the birth and lives of their children. Then fix in the political situations in world at the time! You couldn’t miss, a sequel would be amazing! Honestly, my favorite thing that would have to be shown is the marriage arrangement between England and Spain. It was Henry VII that brought Katherine of Arragon to England to marry the future king, Arthur. However, he died, and Katherine lived in ruin basically until something could be figured out. And we all know what happened with Katherine! A sequel would be awesome! So much great history to be told!!! This is were I beg…please Starz, please! We need a sequel :)

    They should seriously consider doing a sequel and also a prequel sjowing how Efwards father and brother were killed and then he and Warwick defeated Margret of Anjou to become King……that would be great
