We reported on the cancellation of the historical drama The White Queen by the BBC, while expressing hopes that their partner Starz might still pick up the show for a second series, which is now looking likely to happen.
The White Queen, adapted from Philippa Gregory‘s series of books about ‘The Cousins’ War’ or ‘War of the Roses’, proved to be a hit with the majority of viewers over the summer,but was cancelled by the BBC over disappointing ratings – while maintaining that they never had any plans to produce a sequel…
We’re now happy to report that according to The Telegraph the BBC’s partner Starz who co-produced The White Queen and aired the series in America, is very much interested in developing a sequel by adapting Philippa Gregory’s The White Princess as a stand alone mini-series.
The White Princess tells the story of Lizzie’s marriage to King Henry Tudor (Henry VII) and her struggles to remain loyal, as a pretender for the throne believed to be her brother, makes his claim.
More news will appear here once the series is fully confirmed!
