Season 2 of ‘The Great’: 7 Shows to Watch After the Elle Fanning Series
Season 2 of Hulu’s witty and stylish period drama The Great premiered on Nov.
The new batch of ten episodes should keep fans occupied for a while, but where should you look for something similar to binge after the final episode? From alternative takes on the famous Russian empress to other tales of powerful royals and court intrigue, we’ve got you covered with these seven TV series.
The story revolves around a young Catherine.
Helen Mirren plays Catherine the Great, an older version of the famous Russian empress, in HBO’s limited series Catherine the Great.
Catherine has recently ascended to the throne after overthrowing her husband in this four-episode biographical drama.
(Catherine the Great ruled Russia for 18 years before Peter III was deposed and she took over.) Jason Clarke portrays Catherine’s lover Grigory Potemkin.
HBO Max is currently streaming the show.
Ekaterina offers yet another perspective on Catherine the Great’s life.
This Russian-language series, like The Great, begins with Catherine’s arrival in Russia as a German Princess and follows her as she rises to power through romance and court intrigue.
Amazon Prime Video has three seasons available.
With the Russian series Sophia, delve deeper into history.
Sophia, a Byzantine princess who marries Russian prince Ivan III in 1472, is the subject of this eight-episode series.
She assists her husband in consolidating his power in Moscow and becomes a rare and influential female figure in the country.
On IMDbTV, you can watch the first season.
Season 4 of ‘Victoria’ is currently on hiatus on PBS, but star Jenna Coleman has hinted that it will return.
Queen Victoria became the longest-reigning monarch in British history when she ascended to the throne at the age of 18 in 1837.
Victoria, starring Jenna Coleman, is about the queen’s early years in power and her loving but tumultuous relationship with her husband Prince Albert (Tom Hughes).
Amazon Prime Video and PBS Passport have three seasons available for viewing.
One of the highlights of watching The Great is seeing Emma Fryer’s lavish, colorful costumes.
Hulu’s show Harlots, about sex workers in 18th-century London, has similar eye candy, as well as plenty of intrigue, backstabbing, and, of course, sex, as the scrappy Margaret Wells (Samantha Morton) goes up against the ruthless madam Lydia Quigley (Lesley Manville).
