Ovation has released a preview clip and images to promote the October 6 third season premiere of Versailles.
The series stars George Blagden (Black Mirror, Vikings) as Louis XIV and in the new season, he resolves to regain control of his own life, his precious Versailles, and France itself. But rebellion is in the air and new challenges are brewing inside Versailles, as well as outside.
Emboldened by his new favorite mistress, Madame de Maintenon (Catherine Walker), he won’t relent in his quest for absolute power, convinced of his own divine powers. Meanwhile, Queen Marie-Thérèse (Elisa Lasowski) becomes intimate with her cousin, Louis’ archenemy Leopold (Rory Keenan), and Prince Philippe (Alexander Vlahos) suspects his brother is hiding a dark secret that only a mysterious prisoner in an iron mask can corroborate.
Versailles also stars Evan Williams, Tygh Runyan, Maddison Jaizani, Stuart Bowman and Anna Brewster.
Ovation has released a clip of the opening scene of season three, in which we hear Louis XIV’s faithful servant Bontemps (Stuart Bowman) say that some secrets bring redemption… while others are best buried deep in the earth. When the identity of the Man in the Iron Mask is revealed, what will that mean for the court of Versailles?
