Hulu Shares First Pics of Gillian Anderson as Joanna on 'The Great'

Gillian Anderson looks so regal in this first look image from The Great!

The 53-year-old recent Emmy winner stars as Joanna Elizabeth, the mother to Catherine the Great on the Hulu series in the upcoming season two.

Joanna is described as “a glamorous socialite from Germany, sometimes also known as the ‘maestro of marriage’ for her abilities to arrange high profile partnerships for her daughters.”

“She has heard rumors of her daughter’s coup and come to Russia to see it for herself. Though the apple of Catherine’s eye and a doting mother, it soon becomes clear Johanna has more sinister intentions to save her family’s reputation.”

The Great, also starring Elle Fanning in the lead role, as well as Nicholas Hoult, will return to Hulu on November 19.

You can watch the first teaser for the season here!
