When will the third season of The Great premiere? Since 2020, the acclaimed ‘anti-historical’ television series based partly on the life of Catherine the Great, the longest-reigning female queen in Russian history, has won the hearts of romance and drama fans.
We’ve laughed, cried, and been left on the edge of our seats by the several cliffhangers throughout the show’s two seasons, during which it has told “a nearly totally fabricated tale.”
The Great is filled with engrossing drama, ranging from double-crossing and court tension to a full-scale civil war in the golden palace. Fans are, therefore, obviously eagerly awaiting news of the next episode of the drama series. Fortunately, season 3 of The Great has already been confirmed.
Yes, it’s time to dust off your powdered wigs, since Elle Fanning is returning as Catherine with Nicholas Hoult as Peter III. However, you may be wondering what these royals have planned for the upcoming episode of the popular show. Or you may be wondering, “When and where can I see it for myself?”
The Digital Fix is here to assist. We have gathered juicy rumors from Catherine’s court and are prepared to spill the beans. Here is what we know about The Great season 3’s release date, narrative, cast, and trailer.
The Great Season Three Release Date Rumors
We don’t know when The Great season 3 will come out as of October 2022. The third season of The Great is on its way, which is good news. In January 2022, Hulu announced that the show had been renewed, and the new season will have ten episodes. A tweet with a happy tone confirmed the news.
Season 1 of The Great came out on May 15, 2020. Season 2 didn’t come out until November 19, 2021, because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Since lockdowns are no longer in place, it seems likely that the time between seasons 2 and 3 won’t be as long this time (fingers crossed).
Taking into account a realistic production schedule and the fact that the pandemic is no longer causing major delays, The Great season 3 is likely to come out at the earliest in late 2022. As soon as we find out more, we’ll be sure to let you know.
The Speculative Season 3 Trailer
Catherine fans, I’m sorry to say that there isn’t a trailer for The Great season 3 yet. Since filming hasn’t started yet and there isn’t enough footage for a trailer for the next season, I’m afraid we’re still in the dark on this one.
But we’ll let you know as soon as the next teaser for the Emmy-nominated show comes out.
Speculation About the Third Season’s Plot
The plot of The Great season 3 is not known yet, but thanks to comments from the cast and crew and the cliffhanger ending of season 2, we can get a pretty good idea of what our favorite monarch will be doing in the future.
At the end of season 2, there was a lot of death, tears, and the climax of relationships that were hard to understand. Catherine’s diplomatic solutions lead to her killing the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, and she is then put under a lot of pressure to kill her dethroned husband, Peter. This is a spectacular ending.
In the same way, Peter was in a tough spot in the ongoing fight for the throne. Close friends of the imprisoned king told him that he had to choose between his life and his heart, and the slick ex-king of Sweden told him that he had to kill Catherine to live in peace.
So, yeah, it looks like the husband and wife are fighting each other again. But this time, they both care about each other and have feelings for each other. It’s all very hot, isn’t it?
In the last episode of season 2, Catherine decided to make sure she was in charge for good, so she stabbed Peter in the back while she was crying. But it turns out that she killed a man who looked like her husband instead (oops).
Peter came out to comfort her when he saw how sorry she was, but they both had to face the awkward truth that, even though they loved each other, they also wanted to kill each other.
In Season 3, the two will likely try to find a way for both of them to live, and Peter will keep showing that he has changed and loves his wife and son, Paul. You know, instead of the power-hungry monster we all saw in season 1 who almost drowned Catharine.
Tony McNamara, who created the show, told Entertainment Weekly that at the end of the second season, “everyone is in a very, very different place.” I guess the third season is mostly about the court, Catherine’s next step as a leader, and Peter figuring out what kind of person he will be in the end.
Speculation Regarding the Third Season’s Cast
No one will be surprised to hear that all the important people in the royal court will be back for season 3 of The Great. Elle Fanning will be back as the title character, Queen Catherine, and Nicholas Hoult will be back as her careless husband, Peter.
Here are the people who are most likely to be on The Great season 3:
- Elle Fanning (Catherine the Great)
- Nicholas Hoult (Peter II of Russia)
- Phoebe Fox (as Marial)
- Sacha Dhawan (as Count Orlo)
- Belinda Bromilow (as Aunt Elizabeth)
- Adam Godley (as Archie)
- Gwilym Lee (as Grigor)
- Charity Wakefield (as Georgina)
- Douglas Hodge (as General Velementov)
- Bayo Gbadamosi (as Arkady)
- Florence Keith-Roach (as Tatyana)
Dustin Demri-Burns, who plays Voltaire, is also likely to be back since Catherine will still want to know what he thinks as she tries to find a way to keep order without violence.
