The Great gets a 3rd Season

Stan today announced that following a highly successful first two seasons, the Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated comedy-drama The Great has been renewed for a third season, only on Stan.

Led by Elle Fanning (Super 8) and Nicholas Hoult (Stan’s True History of the Kelly Gang), and written by Oscar-nominated Australian writer Tony McNamara, The Great season 3 will feature a 10-episode run.

Having been a huge success with critics and fans alike, the second Season of the series sits on a perfect 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating.

Season 2 saw Catherine initially take the Russian throne for herself, 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 battled her court, her team, even her own mother in a bid to bring the enlightenment to Russia. 

Containing occasional historical accuracy – the third season will see the return of co-stars Phoebe FoxAdam GodleyGwilym LeeCharity WakefieldDouglas HodgeSacha DhawanBayo Gbadamosi and Australia’s own Belinda Bromilow.
