‘The Royals’ will keep its throne on E! now that the network has renewed it for a fourth 10-episode season.
The drama premiered in 2015 and marked the network’s first scripted series. After its success, E! has been looking to bring on more scripted shows, like ‘The Arrangement’ premiering next month. The cable network is primarily known for its entertainment news coverage and reality television shows, such as ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians.’
“The third season of ‘The Royals’ has proven to be an entertaining mix of secrets, deceit and desire that our fans can’t get enough of. We are excited to see what new scandals await our royal family, and how their dynamic evolves in season four,” said E! Entertainment president Adam Stotsky.
Lionsgate television group chairman Kevin Beggs also commented on the series’ renewal, which hails from Lionsgate and Universal Cable Productions. “We’re proud to extend our partnership with our friends at E! and Universal Cable Productions, and we’re pleased that the dedicated fans – the ‘Loyals’ – are getting another season of their favorite show,” Beggs said. ‘‘The Royals’ is the kind of original and provocative series that has become a Lionsgate trademark, and we look forward to an all-new season of saucy palace intrigue and badly behaved sovereigns.”
The hourlong show wraps up its third installment this Sunday at 10 p.m. EST.
