The Critically Acclaimed Drama Returns Summer 2024 On Starz Network

“The Serpent Queen” tells the story of Catherine de Medici (Morton) who, against all odds, became one of the most powerful and longest-serving rulers in French history. The second season of the lavish drama is set to return in Summer 2024.


In Season 1 we followed Catherine’s extraordinary rise to power against all odds. In Season 2 we see her struggle to maintain power, both by exploring her complex relationships with her children, and by digging deeper into the political and commercial alliances she needed to unite the people of France under the Royal family, and away from the rising religious tensions between the established Roman Catholic church, and the rising power of the Protestants.

When the Protestant faith becomes legal, tensions arise, especially from the Guises, who fear losing their superior roles in Court. The Bourbons also propose a trade deal with Protestant England under Queen Elizabeth I, further straining relations. Meanwhile, personal conflicts within the Valois Children distract Catherine from external threats. As political schemes unfold, alliances shift, and secrets are revealed, a web of betrayal leads to escalating tensions. A self-proclaimed prophet named Edith also becomes a formidable challenge to the Roman Catholic establishment, sparking violence and political maneuvering. Catherine’s efforts to secure power crescendo to a dramatic finale.

Danny Kirrane (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, “Don’t Forget the Driver”), Ray Panthaki (“Away,” Colette), Raza Jaffrey (“Homeland,” “Code Black”), Enzo Cilenti (Free Fire, “The Last Tycoon”), Amrita Acharia (“Game of Thrones,” “The Good Karma Hospital”), Ruby Bentall (Firebrand, “Industry”), Beth Goddard (“Manhunt,” “Des”), Ludivine Sagnier (“Lupin,” “The Young Pope”), and Rupert Everett (My Best Friend’s Wedding, “Adult Material”) are to return in their previous roles.

The series also stars Angus Imrie (Emma, “Fleabag”), Emma McDonald (“Moonhaven,” Low Rider), Stanley Morgan (I Used to Be Famous, “The Sandman”), and Philippine Velge (“Station Eleven,” Summer of 85) join as series regulars. Rosalie Craig (“1899,” Macbeth), Isobel Jesper Jones (The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, “The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself”), Bill Milner (Son of Rambow, “The Flatshare”), Ashley Thomas (“Them,” “24: Legacy”), and Alexandre Willaume (“The Wheel of Time,” “1899”) join in recurring roles.

“The Serpent Queen” is based on the book Catherine de Medici: Renaissance Queen of France by Leonie Frieda and is from writer and executive producer Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road, Red Sparrow, The Lone Ranger). The series is executive produced by Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games Franchise) and Erwin Stoff (The Matrix, 13 Hours, Edge of Tomorrow). The series is produced for STARZ by Lionsgate Television and 3 Arts Entertainment.
