Series Info

A chronicle of the early years in the reign of England's King Henry VIII from 1520 to '30, when he divorced his first wife, Katherine of Aragon.


Critics Consensus: Henry's sordid story is concluded in a truncated manner that nevertheless provides closure, although viewers may feel that the ruler's most interesting lovers and opponents had already lost their heads before this fourth and final season.

2010, Showtime, 10 episodes

Critics Consensus: The Tudors continues to revel in beauty and depravity in a third season that excels dramatically by challenging King Henry VIII's closest advisers to make difficult choices with harrowing consequences.

2009, Showtime, 8 episodes

Critics Consensus: While the second season of The Tudors is certainly as gorgeous as the first, both in its cinematography and its able, handsome cast, the unremarkable script reveals only minor improvements in storytelling.

2008, Showtime, 10 episodes

Critics Consensus: Though it isn't the most complex or thought-provoking drama around, The Tudors contains stunning period detail, some sturdy acting, and just enough intrigue to make it an entertaining diversion.

2007, Showtime, 10 episodes
