As a paid premium cable network, Starz is not a slave to the Nielsen ratings, the way broadcast and basic cable networks must be. Still, they have to retain and attract new subscribers, so the popularity of their TV shows still matters. Could The White Princess TV show — a sequel to The White Queen mini-series of 2013 — reign long on Starz? Could there be a second season, some sort of sequel series or, will there be just eight episodes? Stay tuned.
The White Princess stars Jodie Comer as Princess Elizabeth of York and Jacob Collins-Levy as King Henry VII. The Starz cast also includes Essie Davis, Joanne Whalley, Michelle Fairley, Suki Waterhouse, Rebecca Benson, Rhys Connah, Caroline Goodall, Kenneth Cranham, and Vincent Regan. Beginning in 1485, the series tells the end of the saga of England’s War of the Roses and follows the rise of the House of Tudor, as well as the stormy marriage of Elizabeth of York to Henry Tudor.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
