Ovation Unveils Trailer for 'Versailles' Final Season

Ovation Monday (July 9) released a first-look trailer at the final season of its original drama series Versailles, which debuts Oct. 6.

Season three of the series finds King Louis XIV (George Blagden) attempting to regain control of his own life, his precious Versailles, and France itself, Ovation said. But rebellion is in the air, and new challenges are brewing inside Versailles, as well as outside. 

Emboldened by his new favorite mistress, Madame de Maintenon (Catherine Walker), the king won’t relent in his quest for absolute power, convinced of his own divine powers. Meanwhile, Queen Marie-Thérèse (Elisa Lasowski) becomes intimate with her cousin, Louis’s archenemy Leopold (Rory Keenan), and Prince Philippe (Alexander Vlahos) suspects his brother is hiding a dark secret that only a mysterious prisoner in an iron mask can corroborate.
