The Spanish Princess: Season 1 (2019)


Critic Consensus: The Spanish Princess blends soapy melodrama with beautifully rendered historical set-pieces to paint a rounder -- if still not fully realized -- portrait of an often overlooked queen.

The Spanish Princess just doesn't add up for anybody.

Other than an unnecessary Christopher Columbus cameo (pass), the show is interesting, and considering we may be watching female rule fall on another program, I'm looking forward to seeing Catherine rise and how race is handled moving forward.

This sexy, spellbinding follow-up to The White Queen and The White Princess finally gives the charismatic and cunning Catherine her due and provides some much-needed royal herstory.

The mark of a good historical drama is whether it has anything relevant to say to modern viewers, and this sensitive series has relevance in spades.

Arthur and Catherine wanted to bring Camelot back to England, and while we know historically that Catherine won't be able to achieve that halcyon desire in the Tudor court, The Spanish Princess wonderfully makes us want to follow her wherever she leads.

It's well cast, handsomely produced and based on novels by Philippa Gregory. Good popcorn-munching fun.

The Spanish Princess is the ideal period soap, dexterously and intelligently balancing the webby intrigue of 16th century court life with the dewy eroticism of a classic melodrama. There's no guilt here. Just pleasure.

Try as it might, it can't help slipping back into the story we already know, and although the result is still entertaining, it's also less original than I might've hoped.

May 6, 2019 | Full Review…

It's an elegant and powerful tribute to a queen who's all too often been defined by the gluttony of her husband but whose influence changed the very fabric of England.

May 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Lovely and lavishly made, it's a bit thin on character development.
