the tudorsThe Tudors remains in power.  Just a few weeks after the show returned to the air for a sophomore run, Showtime has given the series a third season order, just like it did when the network picked up the drama for a sophomore season in the same month of its highly successful debut. Giving more validation is the fact that The Tudors recently grabbed a Creative Emmy Award for “Outstanding Costumes for a Series.”

Additionally, The Tudors also received a Creative Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series” for the second season of the critically acclaimed program.

Given the show’s history and critical reception, the news doesn’t come as a surprise.  For The Tudor‘s first run, it was nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Drama Series in 2007, while lead star Jonathan Rhys Meyers was also nominated for the Best Actor in a Television Drama Golden Globe for his role as King Henry VIII.  Moreover, the series was nominated for eight Irish Film and Television Awards in 2008 and won seven, including Best Drama Series, acting awards for Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Lead Actor), Nick Dunning (Supporting Actor) and Maria Doyle Kennedy (Supporting Actress), and craft awards for Costume Design, Production Design and Hair/Makeup. Brian Kirk was also nominated for Directing, but lost to Lenny Abrahamson of Prosperity.

The Tudors, for those show are not familiar, is a drama series loosely based on the early reign of Henry VIII and his fixation with ensuring his legacy and challenging the Catholic Church.  Aside from the aforementioned stars, the series also features Henry Cavill as Charles Brandon, Anita Briem as Jane Seymour, James Frain as Thomas Cromwell, Joss Stone as Anne of Cleves, Sarah Bolger as Lady Mary, Joanne King as Jane Boleyn, Max von Sydow as Otto Truchsess von Waldburg, Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Sir John Hutton and Mark Hildreth as Reginald Pole.

Season 3 is set to premiere in 2009 on Showtime
