HULU has announced The Great will return for a third season. The first season of Tony McNamara’s ‘occasional true story’ streamed on StarzPlay and aired on Channel 4 in the UK. The news comes as we await a transmission date from Channel 4 for the second season.
The satiric series from showrunner Tony McNamara (The Favourite) stars Elle Fanning (Maleficent) as the longest-reigning female ruler in Russia’s history in a playfully loose take on history. The series also stars Nicholas Hoult, Phoebe Fox, Adam Godley, Gwilym Lee, Charity Wakefield, Douglas Hodge, Sacha Dhawan, Bayo Gbadamosi and Belinda Bromilow.
Series 2 of The Great is currently streaming via StarzPlay in the UK. We’re still waiting for confirmation that Channel 4 will show it in 2022.
