Season two of the comedic series “The Great” arrives on DVD April 26 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
Season two of the series, streaming on Hulu in the United States, is available now for purchase on digital platforms.
Created and executive produced by Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Tony McNamara (The Favourite), the satirical comedy is loosely based on the rise of Catherine the Great (Elle Fanning) from outsider to the longest reigning female ruler in Russia’s history. With 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 must 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 four-disc DVD set features all 10 episodes from season two, plus deleted scenes and a blooper reel.
The series, which has been renewed for a third season, has garnered multiple Emmy, SAG Award, Critics Choice Awards and Golden Globe nominations. It has also been nominated for four Writers Guild Awards, with Tony McNamara winning for Episodic Comedy in 2021.
