Plot Synopsis

Incorporating historical facts occasionally, THE GREAT is a satirical dramedy series about the rise of Catherine the Great from outsider to the longest reigning female ruler in Russia's history. Season 1 is a fictionalized, fun and anachronistic story of an idealistic, romantic young girl, who arrives in Russia for an arranged marriage to the mercurial Emperor Peter. Hoping for love and sunshine, she finds instead a dangerous, depraved, backward world that she resolves to change. All she has to do is kill her husband, beat the church, baffle the military and get the court onside. A very modern story about the past which encompasses the many roles she played over her lifetime as lover, teacher, ruler, friend, and fighter. On Friday, May 15, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Hulu released the entire 10-episode first season of THE GREAT.
