'The Tudors' final season premieres on Showtime in April

tudors-season-4-premiere-showtime-april-11.jpg"The Tudors" returns for its fourth and final season on Sunday, April 11 at 9 p.m. on Showtime.

In the last season, we watched as King Henry VIII's ( Jonathan Rhys Meyers) relationships with Jane Seymour (Annabelle Wallis) and Anne of Cleves (Joss Stone) crumbled. He suppressed protests over England's break with Rome and the season ended with the execution of his chief minister, Thomas Cromwell (James Frain).

The final season will feature Henry's last two wives, Catherine Howard (Tamzin Merchant) and Catherine Parr (Joely Richardson). We also hear that Rhys Meyers will be losing his boyish good looks via prosthetics and graying hair to more accurately portray Henry in his older, tubbier years as he further descends into madness.

Creator Michael Hirst will again write all ten episodes of the final season.

Check out the Season 4 trailer below:
