As for "The Tudors," the production is the most expensive series in Showtime's history, though a big chunk of the skein's production costs are offset by the sale of international rights. Net will produce 10 episodes for next season, with creator Michael Hirst once again penning all segs.
Greenblatt said the skein "is right on brand for Showtime."
"Michael Hirst has done a masterful job turning history into relevant and entertaining drama," he added, calling the next chapter of the saga "even more compelling" than the current season.
Production on season two will begin next month in Dublin, with Peace Arch and Ben Silverman's Reveille producing.
Second season will document the marriage of Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn, the birth of daughter Elizabeth, the Reformation and
Jonathan Rhys Meyers will return as star of the skein.
