The third and final season of French period drama Versailles will receive its UK premiere on BBC Two on Monday June 4th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Versailles follows the life of King Louis XIV, a 17th century rock star. Versailles season two shows us the dark underbelly of power, as Louis sees the dream of his grand Versailles palace crumbling before his eyes. The drama series is produced by Banijay Studios France and stars George Blagden, Alexander Vlahos, Catherine Walker and Elisa Lasowski.
At the end of the last season, we saw King Louis’ empire, as well as his sanity, dissolve into chaos. In season three, 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 Madame de Maintenon, he won’t relent in his quest for absolute power, convinced of his own divine powers.
