Graham said: “That [new episodes] would directly carry on. Lina (Stephanie Levi-John) and Oviedo’s (Aaron Coham) story continues and also then we and also then we can start to explore the years of his [Henry VIII] monarchy with her [Catherine] and how strong she was a queen.
“She was a regent for a while and he would go off to war and she would be in charge of the army and the country, even when she was pregnant because he appointed her.”
Graham also revealed that the next season will look at the decline of their marriage.

“We will see the increasing problem of not being able to have an heir and how that begins to unravel him and unravel their marriage and their relationships with each other. So all of that will take us to a certain point.”
“Together they create an England that is proud, confident and strong enough to withstand the threat from abroad. Catherine’s struggle to produce an heir places her marriage and position in the court at risk, and she is haunted by her choices from the past.
“Despite proving herself a politician, a diplomat, a national inspiration and even a military commander, Catherine must battle to save her love with the King, and to preserve the peace and prosperity of their reign.”
