With the release of the second season of The Great, some assumptions regarding the upcoming season have been spreading over the news. Will season 3 return? The very question is swirling in everyone’s mind. However, the point at which Season 2 ends, we can definitely conclude that this season is not it. Season 2 ends with a lot of puzzles and suspense that’s still a mystery.
‘The Great’ is a British-American-Australian comedy-drama TV series that was first released on Hulu in 2020. The storyline of the show, created by Tony McNamara, is based on the historical ruling Empress of Russia (Catherine the Great).

The Great season 3: Plot
As of now, Hulu has not issued any sort of official decree regarding the plot of the upcoming season of The Great. However, keeping the finale episode of season 2 in mind, we can expect that season three will pick from where last season ended. In the coming instalments, we will see how Peter and Catherine’s relationship will flourish after she tries to kill him.
As we saw in the last season that Katherine was thinking of Nobel’s arrest, but it’s still unclear her plan might be beyond the initial arrest. In the forthcoming season, we will see that too clearly. Although it’s impossible to anticipate the entire story, if any official updates regarding the plot are revealed, we’ll keep you posted.
