The Great (Season 2): Plot and Cast
As per the official synopsis by Entertainment Tonight, season 2 will show Catherine finally taking over the Russian throne. However, she will still have to fight many other forces such as her own mother in an attempt to bring order and enlightenment to the nation. She will also have to figure out what her heart wants when it comes to her husband Peter. Catherine must decide whether she loves him or hates him. She will also learn the beauty and pain of motherhood as she is pregnant and will perhaps give birth in season two. The show is not a historically accurate one therefore audiences can just sit back and enjoy.
