Hulu has announced the debut date for the third season of the historical comedy-drama The Great. Following more than a year since the conclusion of its second season, the series starring Elle Fanning will return with 10 new episodes on May 12.
Upon the debut of the first official image from the new series, the premiere date for Season 3 was also announced. Catherine and Peter appear to be striving to heal their marriage after spending the previous season attempting to murder each other on a daily basis.
When will The Great Season 3 be released?
The third season of The Great will premiere on May 12. The show’s third season, which will consist of ten episodes, will premiere on Hulu in January 2022. A tweet confirmed the accuracy of the information.
Due in part to the Covid-19 pandemic, season 2 of The Great did not reach our small screens until November 19, 2021. The first season began on May 15, 2020. As lockdowns are no longer in effect, it seems reasonable that the gap between seasons 2 and 3 will be shorter this time around.
What is The Great all about?
The Great is a historical drama revolving around Catherine, a young woman who marries Peter, the Russian tsar, and is billed as “mostly based on a true story” (and later “nearly entirely a work of fiction”).
In Season 2, Catherine, with the aid of bureaucrat Orlo (Sacha Dhawan), general Velementov (Douglas Hodge), and noble-turned-maid-turned-noble Marial, eventually succeeds in replacing Peter as the ruler of Russia. (Phoebe Fox).
During the course of the season, Catherine grew accustomed to her new position as empress, but she encountered considerable opposition from nearly all quarters, particularly from Peter’s loyal nobility.
In addition, she began to recognize how little she knew about Russia. Nonetheless, this did not prevent her from learning or from striving to modify the Russians’ beliefs to be more progressive.
The Great Season 3 cast
Nobody will be surprised to discover that all important royal court members will return for season 3 of The Great. Elle Fanning will likely reprise her role as Catherine the Great. Nicholas Hoult will resume his role as Peter, her irresponsible spouse.
