London, 12 April 2018 (MIA) - BBC series Versailles is reportedly set to be axed as viewers have grown tired of its racy scenes.
Despite its £21 million budget, the period drama said to be struggling to maintain its audience and will be dropped after its third series by its creator, French broadcaster Canal Plus.
A source told The Sun: “The BBC made a big decision when it bought Versailles from Canal Plus, particularly with all the full-frontal nudity.
“At first, viewers were open to all the pornographic scenes but slowly the BBC saw Versailles ratings drop to just one million viewers — and it seems to have had the same effect in France too.
“They believe it will have run its course after the third series, which will see Louis XIV achieve absolute power, so they have decided there won’t be a series four.”
Set in the 17th century, the series dramatizes Louis XIV’s decision to relocate his court from Paris to Versailles.
