Despite declining ratings each season, E! has continued to renew The Royals TV show, when it might have been cancelled on other networks. As the cabler’s first foray into scripted fare, they have given this primetime soap opera every chance. After production was done on the fourth season though, they fired creator Mark Schwahn, in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations. How that ultimately affects this low-rated show’s fate remains to be seen and likely depends on the ratings in the fourth season. Will The Royals be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A scripted drama, The Royals stars Elizabeth Hurley, William Moseley, Alexandra Park, Jake Maskall, Tom Austen, Genevieve Gaunt, and Max Brown. The E! Entertainment TV series centers on a fictional British royal family, in modern day London. They inhabit a world of opulence that caters to their every desire, but one that also comes with a price tag of duty, destiny, and intense public scrutiny.

Although there are several TV shows which have impressed me a lot, The Royals is standing out in particular. Never have i ever been so astonished of one series. I wouldn’t change a thing about the actors, the setting or the development of the way everything happens.
I really enjoy watching The Royals and I’m doing this with ardor. I am patiently waiting for Season 5 with surprise and the only thing which would disappoint me is that the show could be cancelled.
Keep up the amazing work!
