The Royals Season 2 Promo Teases More 'Sex, Drugs and Scandal'

When we last left E!’s The Royals, Cyrus had claimed the throne, leaving his family in dire straits — and according to the first Season 2 promo, things haven’t gotten any better in the interim. (FML, indeed.)

For Prince Liam, actor William Moseley explains in the promo, Season 2 is about avenging his father’s death, “whatever the cost. No one’s going to stand in his way.”

Princess Eleanor is also staying true to form in Season 2, as Alexandra Park teases more “sex, drugs and scandal” for her bad-girl character.

“Queen Helena does, indeed, do some villainous things” in Season 2, Elizabeth Hurley acknowledges, but her reign of terror is nothing compared to King (!) Cyrus.

Our sister publication Variety was the first to post this promo.

Hit PLAY on the promo above for your first look at Season 2, then drop a comment below: What are your hopes for The Royals‘ future?

    This show was a little gem I never say coming. I found it by accident and thought it would be really cheesy but it quickly became one of my favorites.

  2. Saluzzo says:

    Throne, perhaps?

    The show itself is pretty awful (and I say that as a die hard One Tree Hill fan who would watch anything Mark Schwahn created) but I’ll keep watching for Alexandra Park. Princess Eleanor is the only reason to watch this show.

    Worst show of the year

      LOL! Oh, about 80% of the junk on TV is worse. There are entire channels of shows that are ten times worse.

    This show is my guilty pleasure! I wonder if Ophelia will be back, I liked her with Liam.

    • brandi says:

      Mine too! I huddle in the dark watching it on my DVR after my husband goes to sleep so he doesn’t know.

    When does season 2 start? This show was such a guilty pleasure I could do without Ophelia but I love princess Eleanor!

  7. DavidSask says:

    Guilty pleasure show but its time for a soap to NOT have so much loud music and covering entire episode and season and get feelings from the dialogue!!!! It takes a lot to beat Grey’s Anatomy in that regard and this show does!

    Does anyone know what song is playing in this preview?
