When is The Great Season 3 Release Date? Since 2020, the acclaimed “anti-historical” TV show has been able to win over fans of romance and drama. It is largely inspired by the life of Catherine the Great, the longest-reigning female tsar in Russian history. Through its two seasons of “an almost wholly untrue plot,” we have laughed, sobbed, and been gripped to the edge of our seats because of the show’s numerous cliffhangers.
The Great Season 3 Plot
The Great season 3’s plot is currently unclear, but based on staff interviews and season 2’s cliffhanger, we have a good idea of what our favorite king or queen will be doing in the future.
We witnessed plenty of murder, heartbreak, and challenging relationships come to a head at the conclusion of season 2. In a stunning conclusion, Catherine’s diplomatic strategies result in her assassinating the Ottoman Empire’s Sultan and placing her under intense pressure to assassinate her deposed husband, Peter.
Peter too found himself in a tricky predicament as the struggle for the throne continued. The slippery ex-king of Sweden explained how he must kill Catherine in order to live peacefully, forcing the imprisoned king to choose between his survival and his heart in front of his close friends. So it appears that the husband and wife team is engaged in a new civil war of sorts. It’s all quite spicy, though, because this time they both have invested affection and sentiments in one another.
In the season 2 finale, Catherine made the decision to establish her reign once and for all by sobbing Peter in the back. It turns out, though, that she murdered a lookalike rather than her own husband (oops). Peter came out to comfort her when he saw her feeling guilty, but they both found themselves in the terrible position of realizing that, despite loving one another, they both wanted to kill one another.
The Great Season 3 Cast
Nobody will be surprised to learn that all of the prominent members of the royal court will return for The Great season 3. As the titular Queen Catherine, Elle Fanning will undoubtedly return. Nicholas Hoult will reprise his role as her careless husband, Peter.
Since most of them are still alive and—despite the fact that some are in prison—are not exiled—at least for the time being—will all be returning alongside the main couple.
- 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 as Voltaire is also likely to make an appearance, as Catherine will undoubtedly still seek his advice in her efforts to establish a different kind of order besides violence.
As Catharine’s husband struggles with changing for the better and letting go of his claim to the throne, Jason Isaacs might also reappear as Peter the Great, Peter’s father.
None of these, however, have been verified as of yet. As updates start to arrive, be sure to bookmark this guide.
The Great Season 3 Trailer
Fans of Catherine, there is currently no trailer for The Great season 3. I’m afraid we are still in the dark on this one since filming hasn’t started and there isn’t any material for a season preview clip.
However, as soon as the Emmy-nominated sitcom debuts its subsequent teaser, we’ll keep you updated.
The Great Season 3 Streaming
Like previous seasons, The Great season 3 is anticipated to debut on the US streaming site Hulu. The Great season 3 will be available for streaming in the UK on Starzplay, which can be accessed through Prime Video.
The Great Season 3 Release Date
The release date for The Great season 3 is unknown as of November 2022. The third season of The Great is presently in production, which is wonderful news. The show was renewed, and Hulu announced in January 2022 that the new season would have ten episodes. Yay! The information was confirmed by a happy tweet.
The Great’s first season premiered on May 15, 2020, and season 2 didn’t reach our small screens until November 19, 2021, thanks in part to the Covid-19 pandemic. Given that lockdowns are no longer in place, it makes sense that the time between season 2 and season 3 won’t be as long this time (fingers crossed).
The third season of The Great will likely air at the earliest in late 2022, assuming a reasonable production schedule now that the pandemic is no longer significantly delaying production. As soon as we have additional information, we’ll make sure to let you know.
