Having aired on E! for the first time in 2015, The Royals was quite an intriguing show. It was based on Falling for Hamlet, a novel by Michelle Ray. The show lasted for four seasons between 2015 to 2018. However, The Royals Season 5 is an unlikely scenario.
When it first started off, The Royals Season 2 was announced by E! two months before the first season even aired. The network was confident on the show’s success back then. A third and a fourth season for the show were commissioned in the subsequent years. However, there will be no The Royals Season 5.
The Royals Season 5 Cancelled by E!
In August 2018, E! announced that the show is being cancelled and will not be getting a fifth season. The Royals was the first ever original scripted show on E! One of the reasons behind the cancellation was the firing of Mark Schwahn, who created the show. He was let go after allegations of sexual misconduct.
The Royals Season 4 ended on a happy and positive note. Robert and Willow get married, Eleanor and Jasper have their pre-engagement, Liam and Kathryn discuss having a baby, and Violet and Cyrus get back together.
Will The Royals Season 5 Be Renewed on Pop?
Pop, the sister network of E! was long expected to come out with either a spin-off of The Royals, or carry forward the story. However, all these hopes ended on the 24th of September 2018.
Lionsgate Studios announced that the show will not be getting ‘a new home’. The Royals was officially cancelled then and hence there will not be a Season 5.
