Hulu has revealed a new trailer for the second season of The Great, starring Elle Fanning as Catherine The Great, Empress of Russia, and Nicholas Hoult as her spoiled husband, Peter III. Cast also includes Gillian Anderson as Catherine’s mother, Joanna, as well as Phoebe Fox, Adam Godley, Gwilym Lee, Charity Wakefield, Douglas Hodge, Sacha Dhawan, Bayo Gbadamosi, and Belinda Bromilow.
The second season of the “anti-historical” comedy will see “Catherine coup Peter and take the throne for herself, after which she must fight everyone in her life to bring the ideology of the Age of the Enlightenment to her reluctant country. Anderson’s Joanna is one of Catherine’s many adversaries in that struggle.”
All 10 episodes of The Great season 2 will be available on Hulu on November 19, 2021.
