Could There Be A Second Season of Hulu's 'The Great'? Elle Fanning Is Crossing Her Fingers!

The Great seems to a great hit on Hulu, after its’ premiere on Friday (May 15).

Now, star Elle Fanning, is opening up about a possible second season of the show.

The series centers on Catherine the Great, the longest-ruling female leader of Russia, who arrives in Russia only to find out that her husband, Emperor Peter (Nicholas Hoult), is an idiot.

Created by writer Tony McNamara, Elle told Entertainment Weekly that she’s crossing her fingers for a season two.

“There is a possibility, and it is open to having a second season,” she shared. “We can’t say that, we don’t know, but I definitely know that Tony is for sure thinking beyond [season 1]. He has more stories.”

Elle added, referencing the ending of the first season, “I did not think it was going to end this way either because I didn’t get all the scripts before. Tony was writing the scripts while we were filming, as we were going along, and so I think none of us really knew the endpoint.”

“I definitely thought it was going to be something different. So I was surprised by that. When we got the last script it was like, ‘Oh! Okay.’”

Elle continued, “I feel like season 2 would probably continue on this story. I don’t know exactly when it would pick up, but it would be us at this age. We have our fingers crossed.”

According to another report, The Great was pitched as a six season show.

Executive producer Marian Macgowan shared at the Winter TCA that “we initially pitched six seasons. So we believe there’s sufficient material to take us through until she is an old woman.”
