Huzzah! The Great, Hulu’s most delectably decadent historical drama, is back for more glass-shattering pleasure! Season 1 of The Great introduced us to young Queen Catherine (Elle Fanning), an upbeat, educated beauty with huge ambitions for her chosen kingdom of Russia. The only thing standing in Catherine’s path of glory? Czar Peter, her obnoxious, abusive, and bumbling spouse (Nicholas Hoult). The Great Season 1 ended with a pregnant Catherine attempting a coup for the throne, putting her life on the line. So, what happens after that? To find out, you’ll have to watch The Great Season 2.
The Great is a historically inaccurate portrayal of the life of Catherine the Great, the legendary queen who enhanced Russia’s power and reputation on the international scene in the late 18th century. Catherine was born in Poland and married into the Russian royal line, eventually usurping the throne from her husband. This narrative is retold in a funny and irreverent manner in The Great. One that prioritizes absurdity and terror over drab historical facts. (No, but actually, if you resist the impulse to fact-check anything, this program will be a lot more enjoyable.) The Great has outstanding performances by Elle Fanning as Catherine, Nicholas Hoult as Peter, and an ensemble cast that includes Phoebe Fox, Sacha Dhawan, Gwylim Lee, and Charity Wakefield.
Season 2 of The Great picks off just where Season 1 left off, with Catherine’s revolution in full swing and her boyfriend Leo’s (Sebastian de Souza) fate in jeopardy. Here’s everything you need to know about Season 2 of The Great on Hulu…
