The BBC has confirmed that there will be no second season of The White Queen, stating “it was never actually conceived as a returnable series” (source).
This will come as a blow to Andrew Gower’s fans who had hoped to see more of Lord Strange in a potential second season, following his short but sweet scenes as Lord Stanley’s (Rupert Graves) son in episodes 9 and 10.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think the BBC would have had a hit on its hands if it had adapted the book ‘The White Princess‘, about Henry Tudor and Elizabeth of York? Or did the historical inaccuracies mean the series was always doomed?
