Showtime Picks Up 'Tudors' Final Season

Showtime has officially renewed their historical drama for a fourth season and having run out of wives, it will be the last. 

The season will be 10 episodes long and will "dramatize King Henry VIII's last two tumultuous marriages, to Catherine Howard and Catherine Parr" continuing on with the theme of two wives per year. 

Micahel Hurst, creator and writer of the hit series, will be finishing it off himself and then moving along to a new project based on Camelot, also for Showtime.

"I'm thrilled to complete the saga of Henry VIII as reconceived by Michael Hirst," Showtime president Robert Greenblatt said. "He and (star) Jonathan Rhys Meyers have breathed new life into the costume drama by making it both modern in sensibility but also faithful to history. I think we proved that even after 500 years, this is a great story."

The last season will begin airing in spring 2010.
