Farewell to the Tudors: Season 4 Teaser

in Showtime, The Tudors

The Tudors are coming back for their fourth and final season. Did I just get choked up when I said that?

After 3 years of castle parties, debauchery, religious warfare and the ever sexy Jonathan Rhys Meyers, The Tudors is officially coming to a close in Season 4. If you had a chance to check out our “Off With Her Head” article, you’ll see that fans have been in an uproar ever since Showtime announced the end to our beloved show. Since the name of the show is indeed “The Tudors,” and not Henry VIII, many fans (including myself) have argued that The Tudors should continue on to encompass the lives of Mary and Elizabeth. After all, th Tudors was a family dynasty not a single monarchy.

It may be cliche, but unfortunately nothing good lasts forever. And, obviously something amazing, can’t either. It will be sad to wave goodbye to the royal court.

Where do you stand on wrapping The Tudors? Should Michael Hirst continue his tenure? Originally, he was leaving The Tudors to focus on his pilot, Camelot, but news of a greenlight on that series seems to have been swept under the rug.

Here is the official season 4 poster art as well as a teaser for the fourth season:

The fourth and final season of The Tudors premieres Sunday, April 11th at 9PM ET/PT.

They should extend the series as long as possible. They have a really good thing going and would be foolish to end it. They should contiue with Mary & Elizabeth. The show is great, acting is excellent and it should continue as long as possible. By the way, just how many wives did Henry have? Is Katerine Parr the last one?

Umm….excuse me, but as soon as the name ‘Henry VIII’ is said, what’s the very first image that comes to mind,Holbein’s picture of a great strapping tyranical bloke..replete with equally strapping codpiece! The utter epitome of absolute power currupting absolutely.
A great pity given the calibre of the cast, Peter O’Toole, Sam Neil at al, yet this views as little more than early rennaisance soft porn, hell even Anne Of Cleves (renoun for having a head on her like a robber’s dog!) comes off as eye candy.
Artistic licence is also taken with Wolsey’s demise, yet they make great note of the duck’s blood scam at Hailes Abbey , claimed to be that of Jesus.
Henry was well on the road to becoming a ‘bleedin’ fat bassstard’ by the time he got caught up on Anne B, yet the only advance of age shown is his stinking leg canker and then assuming a riduclously hoarse voice.
Henry was 41 when he married Anne Boleyn and 55/56 when he died and here you have this well fit Jonathan Rhys Meyers still looking early thirties when he finally snuffs it!
C’mon people, it’s like Aaron Spelling was let loose on a history book….I call this drivel ‘Bardwatch’! THIS IS NOT HISTORY PEOPLE!! IT’S UTTER HOLLYWOOD WANKERY!!
