Unfortunately, that is a definite possibility, but we do not know exactly what will happen to Athelstan in S3, so we’ll just have to wait and see!
UP NEXT: CURRENTLY FILMING IN PARIS FOR SEASON ONE OF THE NEW SERIES VERSAILLES, WHERE GEORGE WILL BE STARRING AS KING LOUIS XIV
As of right now, the only announcement that has been made is that it will air on Canal+ in France (and I believe on a sister network in parts of Canada) with an estimated release date of Fall 2015.
But that’s not to say that it won’t be shown world-wide. The project has been in development for 4 years now and has been in talks with multiple companies for distribution in other countries, including the United States.
For example, The Borgia is also a Canal+ production, so I can only assume that Versailles will probably air on the same channels as that. But once any announcements have been made as to when and where it will be airing, we’ll be sure to post it here!
George Blagden to play King Louis XIV in new series VERSAILLES
George Blagden will be starring as the lead in the new series, Versailles, a French production (dir. Jalil Lespert), that it is an English-language historical drama skein penned by Simon Mirren (“Without a Trace”) and David Wolstencroft (“Spooks”). Shooting began last week in Paris and will continue for the next six months around the city and also on location at Versailles itself.
Along with George, the show is supported by a very international cast that also includes Alexander Vlahos (Merlin and Privates) in the role of SIR, the King’s brother; Dominique Blanc interpreter ANNE OF AUSTRIA and Amira Casar, BEATRICE, a courtesan.
Other cast includes Tygh Runyan, Stuart Bowman, Noémie Schmidt, Evan Williams, Anna Brewster, Sarah Winter, Anatole Taubman, Lizzie Brocheré, Elisa Lasowski, Maddison Jaizani, Peter Hudson, and Gilly Gilchrist.

Please be sure to include a SAE with your letter or your Twitter handle (if you have one) if you are wanting him to reply to you.
Also bear in mind that it takes him a while to even get the letters in the first place when he is filming in Ireland, so please be patient! He will probably respond to you eventually, it just may not be until after November.
