BBC, Starz 'Cancels' The White Queen

By Allison Moore

Washington, D.C. (August 27, 2013) - BBC has cancelled the historical drama, The White Queen, after one season, writes TV Series Finale.

The show, which features three women who try to manipulate their way onto the English throne, was also co-financed by the Starz premium channel, which has just begun airing season one in the U.S.

The 10-part season one just finished its run on the BBC while Starz's airing of season one began on August 10.

There has been dispute over whether the BBC and Starz planned to close the show after season one from the get-go. The BBC says it was planned to be a one-season show, but the drama's producers say they were hoping for a second season, writes TV Series Finale.

For Starz, the end of The White Queen marks another series that it could not sustain beyond a season or two. The premium channel cancelled Boss late last year after two seasons and recently cancelled Magic City after two seasons.
