'The Great' Season 2 Trailer Finally Debuts Ahead of Hulu Premiere - Watch Now!

The trailer for The Great, which stars Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult, and new cast member Gillian Anderson, just debuted online!

In season two of “The Great,” 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 in a bid to bring the enlightenment to Russia. Meanwhile she’ll also battle her heart as Peter slowly transitions from much-hated husband, to 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.

Season two premieres with all ten episodes on November 19 on Hulu.

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.
