After arriving on Hulu in the United States in November, the critically acclaimed second season of The Great finally makes its UK debut. This "anti-historical" comedy-drama is loosely based on Catherine the Great's rise to power in eighteenth century Russia.

The Great stars Phoebe Fox as Marial and Sacha Dhawan as Orlo - Catherine's two trusted co-conspirators. This season also features Bayo Gbadamos as Arkady, Ramon Tikaram as Uncle Varnya, Blake Harrison as Colonel Svenska, Grace Molony as Queen Agnes, Leonard Buckley as Pasha, and Bill Bekele as Alyosha.

Matthew Moore directed two episodes, and was in the writers room for the season. Robin French was also in the writers room.

Season two of The Great premieres in the UK on StarzPlay, on Sunday 5th December.
