Following the Story Itself
The title suggests that the project should be a docu-series. Nevertheless, we are to follow the drama that full of intrigues, secrets, and lies.
The Versailles Palace was constructed during the reign of Louis XIV in France. The series chronicles this process exactly with brutal political moments inserted into the story.
Everything seems to be against the grandeur of Baroque France. The middle of the seventeenth century was noted for the lavish decadence. This situation worked in favor of many people. That’s why the decision of the 28-year-old king to build the greatest palace in the world was not dear to the taste of many. Thus, various challenges appear in front of constructors and king himself.
The series is an actual hit on all networks it has been broadcasted. We are sure that the premiere in the USA in this October will leave unfazed nobody in fact. The average viewership constitutes 2 million people. This number is for the BBC two airing.
The score on IMDb proves once the fact that we deal with a worthy project that should be developed in any case. It constitutes 7.8 points out of 10 specifically.
The drama fate is already a defined aspect. The second season will be released in the future, supposedly in March 2017 on BBC Two in the UK. As for other channels, there is no certain data about the future launch on them. In any case, we have got already something to look forward to.
The expectations are also such that we will get to know the Versailles season 2 release date when getting closer to the end of this upcoming winter. Check back with our service and you will get informed of any portion of info regarding this historical drama.
