Returning With More Scandalous Drama, E!'s Hit Scripted Series The Royals: Season Two Arrives On DVD March 22

SANTA MONICA, CA (January 19, 2016) - E!'s spectacularly salacious series returns with more unspeakable schemes when The Royals: Season Two arrives on DVD (plus Digital) on March 22 from Lionsgate. Hailed by Star Magazine as "the crown jewel of guilty pleasure TV," The Royals returned for a second season after reveling in more than 5.4 million viewers for the first season's premiere episode. 
The stellar cast is led by Elizabeth Hurley (Austin Powers franchise) as the calculating Queen Helena, and she is joined by William Moseley (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe) as the vengeful Prince Liam, Alexandra Park (TV's "Home and Away") as an uncontrollable Princess Eleanor, Tom Austen (Legendary) as the Prince's devious bodyguard Jasper Frost, Oliver Milburn (Ginger & Rosa) as the troubled head of the Royal security, and Jake Maskall (Centurion) as the newly-crowned and universally despised King Cyrus.  Lydia Rose Bewley (TV's "Drifters"), Andrew Bicknell (The Dark Knight), Victoria Ekanoye (Mop, Bucket and Cape), Poppy Corby-Tuech (Youth), Simon Thomas (The 7th Dimension), and Scott Maslen (TV's "EastEnders") co-star along with Joan Collins (TV's "Dynasty") as the Grand Duchess of Oxford.  The series, which ranks as one of 2015's top new scripted cable series, is produced by Lionsgate and Universal Cable Productions, executive produced, written and directed by Mark Schwahn (TV's "One Tree Hill"), and executive produced by Brian Robbins (Coach Carter), Joe Davola (TV's "Smallville") and Shauna Phelan (Smosh: The Movie.) 
After the tragic murder of King Simon by an unknown assailant, Simon's arrogant brother, Cyrus, has taken the throne with the help of Queen Helena (Elizabeth Hurley). Prince Liam (William Moseley) seeks vengeance for the death of his father while Princess Eleanor (Alexandra Park) struggles to live her seemingly fairytale life. While allies are formed and enemies are made in the royal palace, nothing is what it seems. 
The Royals: Season Two DVD includes all 10 episodes from the scandalous second season on 3 discs and will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.98.
