The Serpent Queen, an upcoming series on STARZ, has just debuted a new teaser, giving us our first look at the royal historical drama with a more cutting edge than most
The show will debut on STARZ on September 11 at 8:00 p.m. ET, and following that, it will be streamable for international viewers on the STARZ app and the STARZPLAY app.
The show focuses on the life of Catherine de Medici, one of history’s most significant figures who rose to become one of France’s most powerful emperors.
In the aptly named “Medici Bitch” season premiere, we will follow Catherine through flashbacks as she tells Rahima, her new servant, about her life to date.
When Catherine, an orphan, marries into the uncivilised 16th-century French court at age 14, her narrative officially begins. Given that Catherine is officially a commoner, the marriage is highly rare, especially for the time.
Given that Catherine is officially a commoner, the marriage is highly rare, especially for the time. But she will become a princess because of her uncle, Pope Clement (Charles Dance).

We get a glimpse of Samantha Morton’s Serpent Queen in the brand-new trailer, which was released yesterday.
