E!'S HIT SCRIPTED DRAMA SERIES "THE ROYALS" BEGINS PRODUCTION ON SEASON THREE IN LONDON

Elizabeth Hurley, William Moseley, Alexandra Park, Jake Maskall, Tom Austen and Genevieve Guant Return to Reign in "The Royals," Co-Produced by Lionsgate and Universal Cable Productions

London, UK - June 20, 2016 - Production on season three of E!'s first original scripted drama series "The Royals" began today in London. Created by Mark Schwahn and co-produced by Lionsgate and Universal Cable Productions, the new season will feature 10 one-hour episodes to premiere later this year. Elizabeth Hurley ("Queen Helena"), William Moseley ("Prince Liam"), Alexandra Park ("Princess Eleanor") and Jake Maskall ("King Cyrus") will return as the scandalous royal family at the helm of a corrupt monarchy with Tom Austen reprising his role as the sexy yet duplicitous bodyguard "Jasper" and Genevieve Guant returning as "Willow," close friend of "Prince Liam." In addition, Max Brown has been cast in the role of "Prince Robert."

Season three picks up two weeks after the execution of King Simon's murderer who had plagued the royal family for months. With Prince Liam and Princess Eleanor's celebrity status hitting new heights, continued debate in the UK on who is the rightful heir to the throne, and the potential return of the presumed deceased Prince Robert, season three promises even more scandal, heightened stakes, and steamier love triangles.

"The Royals" was one of the top three new original scripted series of 2015 among P18-49 across ad-supported cable, excluding spinoffs. The series ranks as the #2 new original scripted series of 2015 among P/W 18-34 and W18-49 across ad-supported cable, excluding spinoffs. "The Royals" has contributed to E!'s ongoing growth and success, which includes a year on year primetime increase of +10% among A18-49 in first quarter 2016.

"The Royals" is co-produced by Lionsgate and Universal Cable Productions. The series is executive produced, written and directed by Mark Schwahn ("One Tree Hill"), and executive produced by Brian Robbins ("Coach Carter"), Joe Davola ("One Tree Hill," "Smallville"), and Shauna Phelan ("Smosh: The Movie").
