by Kim Potts, posted Apr 4th 2009 5:00AM
The Tudors'The Tudors'
(Sun., 9PM, Showtime) 3rd season premiere
It's going to be quite a busy season for Henry VIII (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), as he begins his ill-fated marriage to Jane Seymour in tonight's opener, but rumor has it, will end the season with a wedding to wife number five, Catherine Howard.

In between, there's the birth of Henry's son, the future King Edward; his short-lived fourth marriage, to Anne of Cleves (Joss Stone); and Henry's particularly brutal – more than 200 executions, including those of monks and priests – squashing of the Pilgrimage of Grace.

Plus, look for downfall of Henry's chief minister, Thomas Cromwell, whose fall from favor is swift, and harsh, after Henry's marriage to Anne of Cleves.
