Starz has released official key art and the first full length trailer for upcoming limited series The White Princess, sequel to Emmy-nominated 2013 miniseries The White Queen.
President of Programming for Starz Carmi Zlotnik said, “The White Princess represents the kind of Obsessable programming that has become the hallmark of STARZ Original Series, and we can’t wait for the ardent fans of The White Queen and Outlander to discover it. We are thrilled that Emma Frost returned to the helm to reimagine The White Princess. Her unique voice has created a compelling royal drama, driven by dynamic women in front of and behind the camera.”
Based on the Philippa Gregory novel of the same name, itself a part of The Cousins’ War book series that chronicles English history through the lens of its women, The White Princess begins three days following the events of The White Queen, as England’s famed War of the Roses is coming to an end and Princess Elizabeth of York is set to assume the throne vacated by her mother. An uneasy peace is achieved once former King Richard III is defeated at the Battle of Bosworth by Henry Tudor, the man who just so happens to be married to Richard’s former lover Princess Elizabeth.
Once again helmed by Emma Frost (The Man in the High Castle), The White Princess stars Jodie Comer (Thirteen), Jacob Collins-Levy (Holding the Man), Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones), and Essie Davis (The Babadook).
The White Princess will premiere Sunday, April 16th on Starz.
