Versailles fans petition to save show after explosive and bloody conclusion

Lavish BBC series Versailles came to an explosive and bloody end this evening, much to the dismay of its devastated fans.

The £21million period drama was originally due to run for four series but plummeting ratings prompted bosses to axe the series .

During its final episode this evening, a mass shooting erupted as those rebelling against King Louis XIV attempted to kill him.

But as the shots fired, Monsieur Philippe I managed to save his brother at the last minute.

At the end, the king was seen showing his son their kingdom, from the ornate walls of the palace to the extensive countryside.

But viewers were left calling for more after the open ending of series three.

One tweeted: "It was the last ever #Versailles and I think it’s a travesty! #lovedit."

While another commented: "#Versailles gutted it’s all over couldn’t we have just one more series? Please ?"

A third exclaimed: "Why has Versailles ended ! no way ! Stupid .."

"Television needs more beauty, a season 4 of the series #Versailles #SaveVersaillesSeries #Netflix @seriescanalplus @netflix Signed the petition," another wrote.

One tweeted: "#Versailles. Bravo Versailles , the best series by far this year. Sad to see the end, Monday’s just won’t be the same anymore."

Another commented: "Let us have a season 4 and more of #Versailles #SaveVersaillesSeries."

Cable channel Canal Plus, which makes the decadent drama, revealed back in April that the third series was its last.

The 17th century drama followed the decadent and turbulent early reign of the Sun King, played by George Blagden, and his relocation from Paris to Versailles.

Much of the drama surrounded Louis’ audacious romps with his rivaling mistresses and his openly gay younger brother Phillippe.
