The historical drama looks into the glitz, glamour and hardships of living as a 16th-century royal. The series ran for four seasons between 2007 and 2010 and ran for a total of 38 episodes.
Among the cast of the series includes Anthony Brophy, Guy Carleton, The Witcher’s Henry Cavill a and Natalie Dormer.

The series has been streaming on Netflix since 2015 in the US.
When is The Tudors leaving Netflix?
Every region that currently streams The Tudors is currently scheduled to see all seasons depart on January 8th, 2021.
This includes Netflix USA and Netflix Australia. Unogs reports that 11 regions in total are streaming the series.
It joins a number of other high profile series that are also currently scheduled to leave Netflix in January. These titles currently include The Office, Dexter, and Gossip Girl.
Where will The Tudors stream after it leaves Netflix?
No new permanent has been announced yet. Sony Pictures Television distributes the show outside the US so could sell to a number of streamers abroad. In the US, it could be the case that ViacomCBS picks it up for its upcoming Paramount+ streaming service but as they don’t own it, they’d have to bid for it.
If we hear of where the series will stream after Netflix we’ll update this article.
