King Henry is back! The late King of France returns to The CW's "Reign," and Access Hollywood has your exclusive sneak peek!

News has exclusively confirmed that Alan Van Sprang is set to reprise the role of King Henry in Reign's fall finale this Thursday, Dec. 11, and we're already freaking out.

Reign, Ep. 2.04: “The Lamb and the Slaughter” takes some surprising turns

24 October 2014 9:53 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Reign, Season 2: Episode 4 – “The Lamb and the Slaughter”

Written by Laurie McCarthy & Adele Lim

Directed by Sudz Sutherland

Airs Thursday nights at 9 on The CW

It was this time a couple weeks ago when it didn’t look like Reign was very interested in following through on some of the drastic effects that its plague epidemic introduced to both the castle grounds and the world. But rather than shirking the long-term trauma of it all, “The Lamb and the Slaughter” confidently shows what a thing like the plague does to the characters in this series.

For one, the promises of reckoning and lingering spirits are beginning to spill over into the action at an almost startling level. Reign hasn’t shied away from these elements before, but even former queen Catherine has a disturbing encounter with the ghosts of two little girls an episode after we see proof that »

Why You Should Be Watching: Reign

31 May 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Period drama, 22 episodes aired

Created by Laurie McCarthy & Stephanie SenGupta

Starring Adelaide Kane, Megan Follows, Torrance Coombs, Toby Regbo and Alan van Sprang

Returns to The CW for a second season in the fall

Of all the new offerings from The CW in the 2013-14 season, Reign outclasses its competition by delving totally and unashamedly into its melodrama. Historical accuracy be damned, this series ranks among the best of its genre (including Downton Abbey) by being ridiculous and ridiculously fun. Not since the first season of The O.C. have I seen a debut that has burned through story so quickly without faltering much along the way. Of course, that series couldn’t quite match the creative energy of its first season for the rest of its run, but Reign is poised for a solid second season after smartly turning its attention to a show-wide conflict in its first finale. »

'Reign': The highs and lows of season 1

16 May 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Oh Reign, how I love thee. I mean, how could I not when it has been a season full of ridiculous sexcapades, a crazy (and often pantsless) king, a conniving queen, and a beautifully complicated teenage love story? I simply cannot get enough.

But now that the season has come to an end with a life-threatening birth, and an even more life-threatening plague, it’s time we look back on what worked for the show’s freshman season and what could use a bit of tweaking moving forward.

First things first, bring Julien back! And furthermore …

'Reign' Q&A: Toby Regbo On Prince Francis

8 May 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Mary, Queen of Scots, isn't the only one dealing with serious ruling dilemmas on "Reign."

Although he's only a prince, Toby Regbo's character Francis has been forced to take on great responsibility to circumvent the actions of his mad father, King Henry (Alan van Sprang), on The CW's Thursday night drama. Heroics at Calais saved the day for his country last week, but taking the army Francis promised his wife, Mary, put cracks in their still fresh-forged marital union.

It's been an intriguing journey watching Francis' path to his own reign, as he tries to balances love, country ...

'Reign': Alan Van Sprang says King Henry has 'found clarity' (to everyone else, he's nuts)

27 March 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

King Henry is going nuts, y'all. France's monarch has become increasingly unsettled on "Reign" as of late -- that "accidentally pushing a girl out the window while having sex" thing was pretty noteworthy -- but in "Monsters," Alan Van Sprang says that Henry's madness will really come out.

"He's found himself," Van Sprang tells Zap2it. "He's found clarity -- for him, anyway, everything's crystal clear. He knows exactly what he needs to do, how he's going to go about doing it. He doesn't really care about anyone close to him right now -- [he's willing to take] whatever steps he needs to take to satisfy his sudden clarity."

That's what King Henry thinks, anyway. "For everybody else around him he's sort of bat nuts. Everybody else he's stepping on along his way doesn't appreciate his clarity whatsoever," Van Sprang says.

He continues: "Obviously Catherine, since she's his wife and knows him very well, »

'Reign' star Alan Van Sprang on Henry's clarity; plus, watch Catherine advise his new ... queen? -- Exclusive Video

27 March 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

At this point, there are two big threats in the world of Reign: The Darkness and King Henry. One is a pagan creature we’ve yet to really see; the other is the handsome man who sits on the throne by day and partakes in life-or-death sexcapades by night. But what’s in store now that Bash has had his first experience with The Darkness — and Henry has explained his feelings of divine entitlement?

We talked with Alan Van Sprang about Henry’s future, the newest woman in his life, and of course, that one time he humped a woman out of a window. »

CW's ‘Reign’ First Look: Lesbian Sex by Order of the King (Exclusive Photo)

20 March 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

King Henry II (Alan van Sprang), you so crazy. He takes a kinky turn on Thursday's episode of The CW's “Reign.” We already knew Henry was an 11 on the freak meter, but we learned on last week's episode that sometimes he just wants the attention of his alpha queen. Catherine's (Megan Follows) hand in his face and a “Don't ruin it” shut that down quickly. So on Thursday's episode, he's back to tapping the ladies-in-waiting of the castle — extra emphasis on the plural “ladies.” Also read: CW Renews ‘Supernatural,’ ‘Vampire Diaries,’ ‘Arrow,’ ‘Originals’ & ‘Reign’ for 2014-15 Seasons In TheWrap's exclusive photo. »
