Huzzah! Fans of The Great, today is your day. As reported by Deadline, Hulu renewed its popular cheeky period piece for a third season following a mega-successful sophomore outing. The streamer announced the show’s renewal amid Disney’s Television Critics Association winter press tour.

The Great is one of Hulu’s top-performing original comedies, which led to its 10-episode Season Three renewal. 

Season Two, which debuted in November 2021, follows Catherine’s (Elle Fanning) ascension to Russia’s throne after overthrowing her husband, Peter (Nicholas Hoult). But if she thought a coup d’état was difficult, running a country that doesn’t want to evolve is even more challenging.

Of course, things aren’t always as they seem. Catherine faces her court, her team, a brewing war and even her mother to foster enlightenment in Russia (all while very pregnant). Once her greatest enemy, Peter might prove to be her greatest ally. 

Rounding out the main cast besides Fanning and Hoult are Phoebe FoxGwilym LeeSacha DhawanCharity WakefieldDouglas HodgeBayo GbadamosiBelinda Bromilow and Adam Godley.

Tony McNamara (The Favourite) created and executive produces The Great from Civic Center Media in association with MRC Television. 

To critical and audience acclaim, The Great premiered on May 15, 2020. It received two Primetime Emmy Award nominations for Matt Shakman for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series and Tony McNamara for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.

Hoult received a Screen Actors Guild nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series. Fanning was nominated for a Critics Choice Award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series.

I fell head over heels for this series last year, and I’m ready for Season Three! The Great is, undoubtedly, one of the smartest, sharpest comedies out there.
