Sorry for the late update, the full official trailer for the new season of The Great has been released! It will premiere on November 19th only on Hulu. I have also updated the gallery with screencaps of Nicholas from the trailer.
During this year’s TCA presentation, Hulu has announced that the new season of The Great will premiere on November 19th! They also released a short teaser and the official synopsis for the second season. Huzzah!
“Catherine finally takes the Russian throne for her own — but if she thought coup-ing her husband was difficult, it’s nothing compared to the realities of liberating a country that doesn’t want to be. She’ll battle her court, her team, even her own mother (played by guest star Gillian Anderson) in a bid to bring the Enlightenment to Russia. Meanwhile, she’ll also battle her heart as Peter slowly transitions from a much-hated husband to a prisoner? Ally? Lover? Ultimately, Catherine will learn that to change a country, you must let it change you, that there is a fine line between idealism and delusion, and that becoming ‘Great’ will ask more of her than she could have imagined.”
The nominees for the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards have just been announced, and Nicholas has been nominated in the Best Television Actor (Musical / Comedy Series) for his amazing performance as Emperor Peter in The Great! Elle Fanning and the show itself have gotten nominations as well. Congratulations for the well-deserved recognition!
