Here Is Your Peek at Season 2 of the Wicked Versailles

The gloriously raunchy Versailles returns soon to BBC Two (and, eventually, American televisions via Ovation). Here is a trailer featuring Louis XIV chiding his greedy, murderous courtiers.


The raunch is mostly implied, but apparently, this season, there’s a small orgy and also pregnancy sex! The British tabloids just might keel over and die from their enthusiastic shock. Sample reporting, courtesy of the Sun: “She can be seen gritting her teeth and gripping the brass bed frame as the king thrusts away further down the bed.” Yes, that sounds like coitus, good job guys.

I had no idea there was going to be a season 2 of this terrible show. I’m going to watch the entire thing.

It’s like The Tudors or The White Queen with worse acting, a less thorough understanding of the historical period they’re depicting and even more unnecessary sex scenes. If you’ve ever seen one of the aforementioned shows you’ll know that’s saying quite a bit.
