Currently, we are yet to know if there would be any addition or subtraction to the already existing cast of the series. Hence, we cannot provide the exact official cast list of the next season. Moreover, we think it is safe to speculate that most of the main characters and series regulars of the show are likely to return for another season. Nevertheless, check out the potential cast of Season 2 below:

  • Samantha Morton as Catherine de’ Medici
  • Liv Hill as the younger Catherine
  • Amrita Acharia as Aabis

The Serpent Queen Season 2: Plot

Currently, the plotline of the upcoming season is still kept under the wraps. However, we know that the show broadly follows the story of Catherine de’ Medici, who marries into the French Valois court as a fourteen year-old teenager expected to bring in a fortune in dowry and produce heirs. Despite many challenges, a lifetime of clever political maneuvering allows her to rule France as queen for 30 years.

We think it is safe to speculate that the next season would pick from where it was left off.
