Becoming Elizabeth Release Date Has Been Announced! Check Out Here

As a fan of historical fiction, I’m in for a treat! Becoming Elizabeth, the next Starz series has been given the official green light.

Elizabeth I is the most well-known, talked-about, and enduring image of an English monarch. An all-new series focuses on the events leading up to the monarch’s accession to power. King Henry VIII and his second wife, Anne Boleyn, had a daughter named Elizabeth Tudor.

This is the first time I’ve heard about Starz’s version of the well-known queen’s narrative. It’s safe to say that the network has a lot of experience producing historical dramas. For example, consider the films “Outlander,” “The White Queen,” and “The Spanish Princess.

“They’re all fantastic, and the female leads are outstanding! I do not doubt that the tale of this princess-turned-queen will be similar.

How excited are you, if not as much as I am? In that case, you may be curious about all that’s going on in this new series. What we know about Becoming Elizabeth so far:

The Plot of Becoming Elizabeth

Elizabeth Tudor was an orphaned adolescent who became embroiled in the political and s*xual intrigues of court life in England before becoming Elizabeth I. It’s a race for the position after Henry VIII’s death, and there’s no one to take his place.

With the help of her siblings, Edward and Mary, Elizabeth find herself at the center of a game of political maneuvering.

As depicted in “Becoming Elizabeth,” the court is a terrible and bloody place where everyone is on the wheel of fortune, which can carry them to a position of immense power or the executioner’s block at any given time. It doesn’t take long for decisions to be made, and no one is exempt.
