The renewal of The Great comes as no shocker to anyone, that’s because The Great was one of the most popular original comedy series from Hulu. As said by a statement from a Hulu official.
Who Will Star in ‘The Great’ Season 2?
As the series will carry forward its season 1, the entire cast will be back for the second season of The Great. Now all of this means that Maleficinet’s Elle Fannin will be back as Catherine the Great and Nicholas Hoult will be her husband Peter III.
We can also expect to see the return of Phoebe Fox, Gwilym Lee, Charity Wakefield, Adam Godley, Douglas Hodge, Sacha Dhawan, Sebastian de Souza, Bayo Gbadamosi, and Belinda Bromilow. The very famous Gillian Anderson will also be joining the cast as Joanna Catherine’s mother who is described as a glamourous socialite from Germany who arrives back in Russia after hearing the news of her daughter’s failed coup.
What Will Happen In ‘The Great’ Season 2?
The Great is a historical comedy series and is completely based on loose historical facts. It is not supposed to be accurate if we are honest. The series portrays the dramatic storyline of Catherine the Great which is played by the actor Elle Fanning. The story portrays how she would go on to become one of the longest-reigning rulers in Russia’s history.
Season 1 of the series followed the story of Catherine during her first years in Russia and her turbulent and rough marriage with Peter III. At the end of season 1, Catherine launched a coup against her husband which completely went wrong for every reason. In fact, it even got worse, the failed uprising of the series saw Catherine’s lover Leo’s (Sebastian de Souza) life on the edge and not her intended target Peter.
The last audience also saw Leo which was being sacrificed to Peter’s guards so that Catherine could rule alongside Peter as the empress of Russia. Although we did not see the death of his character on our screens we can presume he is dead and it might be revealed in the second season of the series. However, he did promise to Catherine so there is also a possibility Leo could return back to the series in the form of a ghost or some soul.
Season 2 of The Great is surely going to pick up the plot or storyline from this part and the fallout of Catherine’s coin and how it will affect her relationship with Peter. In the new season, we will also see that Catherine is pregnant and it finally fulfills the wish of Aunt Elizabeth.
Fanning teased while speaking to The Wrap: “This season is very parental and learning to be a mother and mother to a country in that sense. There are some themes there. But we have some wild things planned. It’s going to be cool.”
Also on Hulu, the synopsis of the new season reads: “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……. to be continued

As of now, there is no official trailer for The Great season 2 . However Hulu has shared a short teaser to announce the show’s release date. In this 45 second clip released by Hulu, we can see pregnant Catherine seeing arguing with Peter once again. The teaser opens with Peter asking how Catherine is and how her health is.
