Huzzah! A second season of Hulu’s hit historical comedy, The Great, is a month away. Rejoice with this official trailer for the upcoming second season of the series starring Elle Fanning and Nicholas Holt. Watch it below and catch all 10 new episodes starting November 19th, only on Hulu.
In season two of The Great, Catherine finally takes the Russian throne for her own — but if she thought coup-ing her husband was difficult, it’s nothing compared to the realities of ‘liberating’ a country that doesn’t want to be. She’ll battle her court, her team, even her own mother in a bid to bring the enlightenment to Russia. Meanwhile she’ll also battle her heart as Peter slowly transitions from much-hated husband, to prisoner? Ally? Lover? Ultimately Catherine will learn that to change a country, you must let it change you, that there is a fine line between idealism and delusion, and that becoming ‘Great‘, will ask more of her than she could have imagined.
