First trailer for The Great season 2

A UK release date has not yet been confirmed.

US streaming site Hulu has released the first trailer for the second season of its historical comedy The Great

Picking up where the climactic season 1 finale left off, it sees Catherine (Elle Fanning) now acting as the Queen of Russia having successfully overthrown her tyrannical, childlike husband Peter III (Nicholas Hoult).

Trying to keep control without spilling any blood, liberating and enlightening a country that doesn’t want to change may be more difficult than she anticipated however. 

The majority of the main cast is set to return including Phoebe Fox, Sacha Dhawan, Adam Godley, Gwilym Lee, Belinda Bromilow, Charity Wakefield and Douglas Hodge. 

Gillian Anderson is also set to appear in season 2 as Catherine’s German socialite mother Joanna who, briefly glimpsed in the clip above, decides to come and see the result of the coup for herself. 

The Great was created by Tony McNamara who co-wrote the Academy-Award winning black comedy The Favourite. Directors for season 1 included WandaVision’s Matt Shakman, Colin Bucksey and Bert & Bertie.

Hulu has confirmed that the show will premiere in the US on 19th November and it will hopefully arrive in the UK soon after.
