This article discusses the possibility of The Serpent Queen Season 2 and whether The Serpent Queen has been renewed or canceled. It contains some spoilers for the first season.

The Serpent Queen is the latest period drama on Starz, this one about the infamous Catherine De Medici, a monarch with a not entirely favorable reception. The show, however, has enjoyed quite the opposite. Since the first season is due to end on October 30, 2022, fans are understandably beginning to speculate about the show’s potential future, so here’s everything we know.

Will there be a Season 2 of The Serpent Queen?

Status: Renewed

Update: Starz have officially renewed The Serpent Queen for a second season. There is still no word on a potential release date, but the second season will have eight episodes like the first.  

At the time of writing, Starz hasn’t officially renewed or canceled The Serpent Queen. However, the network has a pretty good track record when it comes to renewing its period dramas. The Spanish Princess and Black Sails got multiple seasons, for instance, but it’s worth noting that Becoming Elizabeth did not. However, The Serpent Queen is enjoying much more favorable ratings than that latter show.

Despite being based on the life of a real figure, a fair degree of artistic license has been taken in the first season thus far, with explicit allusions to supernaturalism. It also, while chronicling a large sweep of Catherine De Medici’s early life, doesn’t exactly tell the complete story. If the network determines there is more to tell, this combined with the decent (and sustained) ratings could well work in the show’s favor.

We predict that The Serpent Queen will be renewed for Season 2.


What is The Serpent Queen about?

Here’s the official synopsis:

The series follows the story of Catherine de’ Medici, who marries into the French Valois court as a fourteen-year-old teenager expected to bring in a fortune in dowry and produce heirs. Despite many challenges, a lifetime of clever political maneuvering allows her to rule France as queen for 30 years.

What could The Serpent Queen Season 2 be about?

Unless the finale resolves all of the ongoing storylines, the second season could be much like the first, with Catherine recounting her story to Rahima while grooming the young maid as an important ally. If her conflict with Mary remains unresolved, this could form the basis for the second season, which wouldn’t have to spend so much time recounting Catherine’s early life.

    It’s Riveting TV watching, the protagonist is portrayed with astonishing deftness by Samantha Morton, the supporting characters are extremely well played to jointly deliver a beautifully filmed commendable production, I for one would be very disappointed if the show is cancelled.

    Recount of historic nature are always fascinating to me especially when enhance creatively. It is also cinematic and transportive.the drama is well balanced with moments of humor which is undeniable. Only with there was more accent of French vs English.

    The Tudor court has been played to death through films and tv series, while their French contemporaries have been overlooked. This series was excellent. Perhaps with this new interest in French history, other than the Louis Kings, we’ll get more entertaining and historical glimpses of the past.
