The critically acclaimed and wildly entertaining comedic series “The Great” Season Two arrives on DVD April 26, 2022 from Paramount Home Entertainment. Season Two is currently available for purchase on Digital platforms.
Created and executive produced by Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee** Tony McNamara (The Favourite?), “The Great” is a satirical comedy—and occasionally true story—about the rise of Catherine the Great (Elle Fanning) from outsider to the longest reigning female ruler in Russia's history. With Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult reprising their Golden Globe®-nominated roles, Season Two finds Catherine finally taking 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 two-time Emmy Award®-winning*** actress Gillian Anderson) in a bid to bring the Enlightenment to Russia.
The 4-disc DVD set features all ten episodes from Season Two, plus exclusive deleted scenes and an uproarious blooper reel.
“The Great” Season Two is available to stream on Hulu in the U.S. and is currently Certified Fresh® on Rotten Tomatoes® at 100%.**** The MRC Television and Civic Center Media series, which has been renewed for a third season, has garnered notable awards recognition since its debut in 2020, including multiple Emmy®, SAG Award, Critics Choice Awards and Golden Globe® nominations. “The Great” has also been nominated for four Writers Guild Awards, with Tony McNamara winning for Episodic Comedy in 2021.
