The Serpent Queen premieres on Starz on Sunday, September 11, on Starz. It will be available to stream online and on the Starz app at midnight, followed by the Starz channel cable broadcast at 8:00 p.m. ET. in the U.S. and Canada. The lush period drama with a contemporary sensibility, The Serpent Queen follows the rise of Catherine de Medici, who maneuvered her way to becoming one of the most powerful and longest-serving rulers in French history.
Award-winning actor Samantha Morton plays Catherine, as she reflects back on her life marrying into the French court as a 14-year-old orphan (her younger self is played by Liv Hill) through the machinations of her uncle, Pope Clement (Charles Dance). She enters into a marriage with a courtier who is in love with someone much older and more worldly than her and she must quickly learn her way around the court, and who she can trust in both her household and the court at large. However, it is very clear that those who would challenge her have underestimated the young woman’s fierce determination and survival instincts. The show is based on Leonie Frieda’s non-fiction book Catherine de Medici: Renaissance Queen of France. Read on for how to watch The Serpent Queen.
