Hulu’s comedy-drama has been renewed for a second season. The streaming service ordered for the second season immediately after the first season, which aired in May 2020. Created by Tony McNamara, creator of The Favorite series, the show is loosely based on the life of Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia.
The series has received positive reviews from fans, although Hulu does not release viewing information. Reviewers such as Metacritic delivered 75% ratings gathered from 30 critics, while Rotten Tomatoes gave a 88% rating from 76 reviewers. The show, a masterpiece that balances between different genres, from comedy to satire to period drama, etc., has been nominated for many awards, including Primetime Emmy Awards.
The Great Season 3 Release Date: When will it air?
The release date for The Great season 3 is unknown. The third season of The Great is presently in production, which is wonderful news. In January 2022, Hulu said that the show had been renewed and that the new season would have ten episodes. Yay! The information was confirmed by tweet.
The Great’s first season premiered on May 15, 2020, and because of the Covid-19 pandemic, season 2 didn’t reach our small screens until November 19, 2021. Since lockdowns are no longer, it makes sense that there won’t be as much time between seasons 2 and 3.
The release of The Great season 3 is most likely to occur in late 2022 at the earliest, assuming a reasonable production plan since the pandemic is no longer significantly delaying production. As soon as we learn more, we’ll be sure to update you.
Where can we watch The Great?
Like previous seasons, The Great season 3 is anticipated to debut on the US streaming site Hulu. The Great season 3 will be available for streaming in the UK on Starzplay, which can be accessed through Prime Video.

Also, Empress Catherine ruled till the later part of her life; therefore, there are many storylines that can be pulled from the Empress’s life.
