Following a strong streaming performance of season one on CuriosityStream, impressive domestic ratings on France 5 and a raft of international sales including to Foxtel, Viasat World, ZDF, TV5 and the commission of an English language version of the series for History UK, ‘The Real War of Thrones: A History of Europe’ will return to CuriosityStream with an extended 6 x 60’ second season.
