The Royals returns to E! on Wednesday 10th February 2016 in the UK it has been confirmed.
Starring Elizabeth Hurley, William Moseley, Alexandra Park, Jake Maskall, Tom Austen, and Oliver Milburn, The Royals is E!’s first original scripted series and its first season proved to be a breakout hit. For the new series Dame Joan Collins guest stars in four episodes as the Grand Duchess of Oxford.
Lydia Rose Bewley, Andrew Bicknell, Victoria Ekanoye, Poppy Corby-Tuech, Simon Thomas, and Scott Maslen also return for season two.
The second season picks up eight weeks after the tragic murder of King Simon (Vincent Regan) by an unknown assailant. Cyrus, Simon’s arrogant brother, has taken the throne after deeming the Prince and Princess illegitimate, with the help of the Queen to fabricate the paternity results. While Cyrus is convinced the Queen is on his side, her majesty has her own agenda in mind: change the succession of the Royal Family and make the power shift to the Queen if anything should happen to yet another King.
The Royals is co-produced by Lionsgate and UCP. 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.
