The Great is an anti-historical comedy-drama series that follows the rise to power of Catherine the Great, Empress of All Russia. The series is loosely based on the life of Catherine, who was crowned empress in 1762 after her husband Peter III died unexpectedly.
The series takes place in a fictionalized version of 18th-century Russia and follows a young woman named Elizaveta Petrovna (who is based on Catherine) as she rises from being a commoner to becoming one of the most powerful women in all of Europe.
One of the show’s main themes is that while Catherine may have been able to succeed because of her intelligence, beauty and political acumen—she still had to deal with sexism and social inequality during her time as empress.
The series was coined as “anti-historical” by the streaming platform Hulu but clearly tossed a lot of chapters from the past that did make the series stand apart from the rest.
The series has delivered two successful seasons and have imprinted plenty of questions among fans speculating about another season. So, if you’re one of those who want to find out about The Great Season 3, here’s everything you need to know.
Is There Going To Be The Great Season 3?
The popular TV series loosely based on the life of Russian Empress Catherine the Great has captivated people in recent years. It’s controversial, romantic and dramatic and it keeps viewers on the edge of their seats.
The series premiered in 2020 serving fans with two spectacular seasons narrating “an almost entirely untrue story”, over the past 2 seasons. We’ve laughed, cried and have been left with our heart in our throats thanks to the show’s countless cliffhangers.
The last season really put us through some tough times tracking the episodes and number of plot twists they were adding.
Speaking about the arrival of season 3, the streamer announced season renewal back in January 2022 following the great appreciation for the series. So far there has been no update on the season and its development.
Expected Plot for Season 3
The plot of the third season of The Great has not been announced yet, but it can be assumed that it will pick up right where the second season left off.
We can expect the upcoming season with another time jump like before. Overall, there will be a lot of tough questions to answer in the third season, such as how Peter and Catherine’s relationship functions (or if it even does) with having them kill each other.
Who Would be in The Cast?
The third season would expect to bring back the characters that were present in the previous season including Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult, Phoebe Fox, Sacha Dhawan, Charity Wakefield, Gwilym Lee, Adam Godley, Douglas Hodge and Belinda Bromilow.
One of the driving plots in The Great is the tons of drama in the imperial court. Fans are eager to find out what happens next and how it all goes down so I can’t spoil anything for you! if you want to catch the show, The Great is currently streaming on Hulu.
