Canal+ has cancelled Versailles after three seasons. Speaking to Variety, head of programming Fabrice de la Patelliere revealed the period drama will not continue into Season 4:
From the start, “Versailles’” producer Claude Chelli had spoken to us about making three seasons. The series was meant to chronicle the coming of age and rise to power of Louis XIV and show how he built Versailles to corral his nobles, asserting his absolute power. At the end of the third season, Louis XIV has achieved absolute power, he’s 46 or 47 years old, so we reached the end of the narrative arc that we had envisioned for this series.
As far as the process, it was a wildy ambitious journey to set up the writing, production, casting, costumes, etc. We had hundreds of technicians working on the show. This last season was written by Andrew Bampfield and Tim Loane who took over from David Wolstencroft and Simon Mirren, the creators and showrunners of the series. They did a remarkable job at transitioning harmoniously, with the crucial help and guidance of the producers, Chelli and Aude Albano from Capa Drama.
