The Tudors Season 4 Update

Posted By on March 1, 2010

Those of you in the USA are counting down to the 11th April when the final series of “The Tudors” is due to premier but what about viewers in the UK and other countries?

Well, after an article in The TV Times raised some hopes by suggesting that the BBC would be airing Season 4 in the Spring, I contacted the BBC to ask if they had scheduled a starting date for it. My hopes were dashed when I received an email this morning saying that they have no details of when it is likely to be aired. I suspect that they will include it in their Autumn schedules when they launch new programmes after the UK school summer holidays – so, end of August/early September is my guess. As for other countries, I just don’t know.

What do you all think of The Tudors Season 4 promo poster? We’ve been discussing it on The Anne Boleyn Files Facebook fan page and we think it’s funny that Jane Seymour is half naked and just look at Anne of Cleves’s cheeky look!

P.S. Happy St David’s Day to all our Welsh visitors and those with Welsh blood. Are you wearing your daffodil or leek? My Mum is.

    I cannot wait for the last series of The Tudors – it looks really good. It will be interesting to see how Catherine Howard’s downfall is portrayed. And the promotional poster is great! This site is fab – keep up the good work!

    I’m really excited about Season 4! I hope they bring it to Greece soon!! Although we haven’t seen Season 3 yet, but I believe they will show them together, as they did with Seasons 1 and 2.

    There is Anne in the poster!! 🙂

  3. I love the whole “I conquered them all!” pose he has going on. Ha! Although I do think his pose mirrors the cross in his hand and that’s aestetically nice. I’m with you, Claire, on Anne of Cleves look! And Cat Howard, the clueless purring vixen, oh lawd!

  4. same with germany! haven’t aired season 3 yet! it was only january season 2 was aired, two years or so after season 1. we ‘re always behind everyone else i think

    I cannot wait for Season 4. I have enjoyed this series immensely. They are showing reruns of season 3 every Sunday here in America. Not to give anything away to those who have not seen season 3, but last night Anne lost her son after seeing Jane and Henry together. Natalie Dormer had me crying all over again. I wish they would continue the series and include the reigns of his children.

  6. season 2 has only just been aired on german tv about two months ago. about one or even two years after airing season 1!
    it seems like we ‘re always behind everyone else! they prefer repeating tv programms such as films and series over and over again saying that buying the recent foreign productions was too expensive.

    that really is a big wind up for many citizens over here! downloading is a common recource over here, but only to the people though who understand english well enough to watch the non dubbed originals.

    and that’s also a reason for being behind: the cost and effort of synchronisation!

    I from Germany but i life in New York but my mom always send me the german DVDs from the Tudors i just was reading on pro7 the channel who airs the tudors will not air season 4 nomore there will stop after season3
    Because not a lot of german watch the Tudors
    I guess i’m lucky i life here in the states

    Anne of Cleves is obviously loving her freedom lol. Katherine Parr looks suitably regal. Catherine of Aragon has apparently lost faith in the whole thing and is walking away! And it’s such a shame they caught Jane Seymour coming out of the bath! I like how they’ve all got their crowns on though.

  9. lisaannejane says:

    Since JRM never ages, maybe it should be called “The Picture Of Dorian Gray’ LOL!

  10. Bella says:

    I don’t know when we’ll get season 4 here in New Zealand, if its like the others probably some time in September. Thats if TVNZ have bothered to buy it; they kind of have a history of not screening new seasons if a series hasn’t rated well. But if they show it, at least its on a free-to-air channel! September though seems such a long way away…!

    Hi Claire

    I am sorry that the T.V Times article about a spring starting date for the 4th season of The Tudors in The U.K proved incorrect. I thought it might be too good to be true!!

  12. Claire says:

    That’s ok, Carol, I just wonder where the TV Times got it from. Do you think that they mistakenly used the US release date?

  13. Carol says:

    Claire I think that you might have hit the nail on the head. The thought occurred to me that they might have mistakenly used the U.S release. date. In any case I think it is a bad error – it s not even just a couple of lines that are hidden away and are difficult to find. It is on page 5 under a large colour picture of Jonathan and Joely Richardson.

    Ah well, they say all good things come to those who wait!!

    I do have a TV which is about to conk out but as I seem to use home only to sleep I never watch it. Have to say that films such as “Braveheart”, “First Knight” and the Spanish film of Joan the Mad “Juana La Loca” amongst many have put me off watching historical series although the The H8 one in I think the 70s was good and Elizabeth R with Glenda Jackson were excellent – so I cannot really comment. But had to smile at Lisannejane’s comment because just a few days ago I had an Email from a very old friend in New Zealand with whom I had lost touch for many years until recenlt and we have exchanged photos and gossip. My friend’s comment was that I was looking good seeing some of the things I had been up to over the last 20 or so years or, he added, was it shades of Dorian Gray? I sent that paricular part onto another old friend who lives in Saudi whose tart comment was “I am sure Dorian Gray pales into insignificance compared with you!” – No comment!

    To Jenny: You have some amusing friends! By the way, if you want to watch “The Tudors” in the U.S., you have to pay for it – where I live it would be an extra sixty dollars a month, plus a whole bunch of stuff I don’t want and a cable box so my tv is harder to use. I will probably wait and buy it on Amazon.com for $25.

    I live in France, and season 2 has been aired on our tv like 4 months ago.
    I’m sure we won’t have season 3 until septembre 🙁

  17. Angelina says:

    It starts on my 24th Birthday!

  18. Natalie says:

    I’m Canadian, and I don’t think they’re airing the final season until the fall on the only local station that plays it (CBC). This has actually led me to just watching the trailer obsessively – the young man who plays Culpeper is so handsome! 😉
    I really like that poster too.

  19. If you people want to see TV shows on your PC, I highly recommend that you go to these websites.

    Hi there,

    Do you have any update on the uk air date for season 4 yet?

    Thanks

  21. Diane V. says:

    Why not purchase
    the DVD’s and have done with the waiting.

    1. Claire says:

      Because American DVDs won’t play on British DVD players unless you have a multi-region player.

      Because North American DVDs won’t play on British DVD players unless you have a multi-region player.
