What is the series ‘The Great’ all about?
For those of you who are unaware, let us share with you, Hulu’s The Great is simply based on the rise to power of Catherine the Great, Empress of All Russia. It stars Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult in lead roles.
The synopsis of the third season reads, “Season 3 of The Great sees Catherine (played by Elle Fanning) and Peter (portrayed by Nicholas Hoult) attempt to make their marriage work after some seemingly insurmountable problems. Peter witnessed his own attempted murder at Catherine’s hands and she also imprisoned all of his friends. On top of this, Peter is at a loose end playing First Husband to Catherine’s reign, so he busies himself with fathering, hunting and salty culinary ventures.”
It further reads, “But they’re not enough to keep him contented as visions of his late father (played by Jason Isaacs), get in his head about his failures as Peter the Great’s son. Catherine the Great starts making a name for herself beyond her borders and inspired by a visit from the US ambassador, sets up a conference where peasants, nobles and merchants can all give their input on developing a new Russia. She learns that even the best political leaders sometimes need to make compromises in order to progress.”
Season one of the series The Great premiered on Hulu on May 15, 2020. On the other hand, when we talk about season 2 of the show, it saw the light of day on November 21, 2021. The show got renewed for a third season last year, in January.
