Things are not looking good for Henry's fifth wife, Katherine Howard. A new episode of The Tudors will be airing on May 2 and we have a synopsis and promo photos for the episode below. Rejuvenated by his tour of the north of England, Henry feels a new man and longs after his new Queen; unaware that her affections are diverted elsewhere. Katherine's past begins to catch up as an old liaison comes looking for a job threatening to reveal all about their sexual history. Someone beats him to it when an anonymous letter is sent to the King containing accusations of adultery. Although unconvinced of the rumor, Henry confines Katherine to her apartments pending a thorough investigation. To Read More Click Here .
A new episode of The Tudors will be airing this weekend on April 25 as the show works its way through its final season. Showtime has released promo photos and a synopsis of the episode, which you can view below. Buoyed by the happiness that a young wife brings an aging man, Henry is noticeably more tolerant and forgiving than he once was. Such goodwill is well appreciated by the peasants of the North who gratefully accept Henryâs forgiveness for the Pilgrimage of Grace revolt, during a Royal visit. But the Kingâs benevolence may yet be tested by his new Queen: Katherine Howard has submitted to seduction by the young and handsome Thomas Culpepper. To Read More Click Here .
I'm feeling really good about the final season of The Tudors. Last season got a bit bogged down when the show focused on the religious and political storyline, but the premiere episode of season 4 shows that this series is back to the royal soap opera storylines that made it great back in seasons 1 and 2. The next new episode of The Tudors will be airing on April 18. Showtime has released promo photos and a synopsis, which you can view below. To Read More Click Here .

Since its premiere three years ago, The Tudors has been one of my favourite shows. Gorgeous costumes, fantastic actors, intriguing storylines this show has it all. Admittedly, season 3 dragged a bit when it focused too heavily on the religious uprisings in England after its break from the Catholic Church in Rome. The Tudors is always at its absolute best when it is focusing on Henry VIII and his relationship with his wives. That is what made seasons 1 and 2 so interesting (and, I believe, a fantastic performance by Natalie Dormer as doomed second wife Anne Bolyen). When we last left Henry at the end of season 3, his third wife, Jane Seymour had died. Distraught over the death of his favourite wife (and the only wife who ever bore him a son), it took his ministers a while to convince Henry to take a new bride. Enter Anne of Cleves (played by singer Joss Stone). History tells us that Henry wasn't too pleased with Anne's looks (Joss was rather plain looking, but certainly not ugly) and quickly rid himself of his fourth wife. Fortunately, for her, she didn't go the way of his other wife Anne (who died by beheading), and was simply sent off to live in the country with an annual pension. To Read More Click Here .

From THR: Showtime has anointed a successor to The Tudors with a 13-episode order for The Borgias , a new historical drama starring Jeremy Irons in his first full-time TV series role. The pay cable network made the announcement Saturday during its portion of the winter TCA press tour. "Borgias" is set in Italy in 1492 and follows a powerful crime family headed by patriarch Rodrigo Borgia (Irons). "I can guarantee you've never seen a family quite like this before, and nor could you make up the outrageous twists and turns of their epic saga," Showtime entertainment president Robert Greenblatt said. Michael Hirst, who wrote every episode of "Tudors," will run the project, which originated at DreamWorks TV and Robert Zemeckis' ImageMovers. Neil Jordan, who has been trying to get a "Borgias" feature off the ground for years, will executive produce and direct first two episodes. Production on the series is slated to begin in the spring for an early 2011 debut. "Borgias" is one of several new Showtime scripted series, including recently ordered Laura Linney cancer comedy "The Big C" and the Matt LeBlanc-starring comedy "Episodes," about a U.S. remake of a hit British comedy to be toplined by the "Friends" star. "Episodes" got a strong first reaction from critics: A trailer for the show, in which a graying LeBlanc must audition for his own part against a room of leather-jacketed Joey look-alikes practicing his trademark line "How you doin'?," had the TCA audience in stitches. James Hibberd contributed to this report. Source
