Twenty-seven years into his reign, Henry VIII is at the height of his powers. Not long after the execution of Anne Boleyn he takes a third wife — Jane Seymour, a woman with inner beauty and noble character whom he clearly loves and who has a calming effect on the King. Soon there is wonderful news for King Henry: after some months of nervous waiting, his beloved Jane is expecting a child. Henry is convinced it will be his long-awaited male heir; when he is proven right, the country goes into a convulsion of celebration — a Tudor prince named Edward — but this gaiety is short-lived: soon after delivering the child, Jane falls into a fever and dies. Henry is heartbroken and becomes a recluse. Cromwell, however, encourages him remarry as soon as possible to the dowdy sister of the Duke of Cleves, Anne. When the monarch meets his young bride-to-be he realizes he has made a mistake, but it is too late to withdraw. They marry in underwhelming circumstances and the marriage remains unconsummated, despite Henry’s best efforts. Ultimately, the failed marriage reflects badly on Cromwell and his enemies — among them the King’s best friend Brandon. On a clever technicality, Cromwell is arrested on grounds of treason and is sent to the Tower — where he has sentenced so many before him.

where is season 4?! it started way back in april, itunes why are you so behind?
Return of the King!
FINALLY!!! I've been waiting for season 3 to come out! I love that the scenery and decor have become more somber and dark to emphasize the characters' moods and the darkness in this part of Henry VIIIs reign. In this season all the main characters (Suffolk mostly) go through a character change and realize that they must tread carefully around the moody king whose bum leg is causing his temper to flare more fiercely. I also love that JRM is wearing furs to make him look husky. Well the final season will be coming in April 2010 and guess who's gonna play Katherine Parr? If you guessed "Nip/Tuck"s Joely Richardson, you'd be dead on! And princess Elizabeth is supposed to be 12-13 years old around this time; and the longed for crowned prince Edward will be older too. I can't WAIT for next year! But for now we all must cope with this edgy, character-defining season. Expect heads to roll ; )
Love the Tudors!
Despite the quick pace, which leads to some historical inaccuracy, this show is awesome!
