E! Entertainment today announced the season three pick-up of hit first original scripted drama series The Royals, co-produced by Lionsgate and Universal Cable Productions.
Created by Mark Schwahn, the hour-long drama centers around a fictional modern day royal family. The Royals third season will again be 10 one-hour episodes.
“We are incredibly proud of the success of ‘The Royals,’” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Development, E! “The series has captured fans and brought them into a regal world of sexy, fun drama. We can’t wait to see what season three will bring and what surprises are still in store as we enter the second half of season two.”
“We are delighted by today’s pick-up announcement for season three of ‘The Royals,’” said Kevin Beggs, Lionsgate Television Group Chairman. “‘The Royals’ reflects the kind of original, noisy and provocative series that is a Lionsgate signature. We look forward to an all-new season of palace intrigue and badly behaved royals with our partners at E! and Universal Cable Productions.”
The Royals season two finale airs Sunday, January 17 at 10pm ET/PT on E!
The Royals is co-produced by Lionsgate and Universal Cable Productions. The series is executive produced, written and directed by Mark Schwahn (“One Tree Hill”), and executive produced by Brian Robbins, Joe Davola (“One Tree Hill,” “Smallville”), and Shauna Phelan.
