Created by Tony McNamara, The Great is a British-American-Australian comedy-drama television series from Hulu. The streaming service described it as anti-historical and it is based on the rise to power of Catherine the Great, Empress of All Russia.
The first season of the series was released on May 15, 2020. In July 2020, Hulu renewed the series for a second season which premiered on November 19, 2021. In January 2022, the series was renewed for a third season.
So, when is the third season releasing? Who will play the lead roles? What is the plot? Keep reading to know further details.
The Great Season 3 Release Date
As of right now, no official release date for season 3 of The Great has come out. It would make sense for season 2 to be released sometime towards the end of 2022 or in 2023
However, the makers have confirmed that the upcoming season will also have ten episodes just like seasons 1 and 2.
The Great Season 3 Plot and Cast
Although the makers have not revealed an official plot synopsis for The Great season 3 right now, the series is fictional and focuses on Catherine’s youth and marriage to Emperor Peter III alongside the plot to kill her corrupted and dangerous husband.
At the end of season 2, we saw plenty of murder, tears, and complicated relationships reach their climax. In a spectacular finale, Catherine’s diplomatic solutions lead to her killing the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire and being put under extreme pressure to kill her dethroned husband, Peter.
The final episode of season 2 concluded with Catherine deciding to solidify her rule once and for all by stabbing Peter in the back while crying. However, it turns out that she killed a lookalike instead of her actual husband (oops). Seeing her remorse, Peter came out to comfort her; however, both were left in the awkward situation of realizing that despite loving each other, they wanted to kill one another too.
Season 3 will probably see the two trying to work out a solution where they both can live, with Peter also continuing to prove that he is a changed man who loves his wife and son Paul. You know, instead of the power-crazed monster that we all saw in season 1 who almost drowned Catharine.
Now, talking about the cast, it will shock absolutely no one to know that all the leading members of the royal court will be back for The Great season 3. Elle Fanning is coming back to play the titular Queen Catherine, as is Nicholas Hoult, for the part of her irresponsible husband, Peter. Along with the leading couple, their close confidants and advisors will also all be making a return since most are alive and (despite a few being imprisoned ) are un-exiled… at least for now.
