Hulu Cancels Historical Favorite The Great After Three Seasons

Hulu’s fan-favorite series “The Great” has been canceled after three seasons.

Starring Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult and created and produced by Tony McNamara, “The Great” followed Catherine the Great — Russia’s longest-reigning empress from 1762 to 1796 — as she navigated her roller-coaster relationship with husband Peter III of Russia. “The Great” is subtitled “An occasionally true story,” but it’s more of a flamboyant, darkly comedic autofiction than it is a factual biopic.

During its three-season run, “The Great” scored seven Emmy nominations and took home the 2022 Emmy for outstanding period costumes. Fanning and Hoult were both Emmy-nominated for their performances, and Fanning nabbed SAG, Critics Choice and Independent Spirit awards for her portrayal of Catherine, as well as two Golden Globe nominations.

For three seasons on the anti-historical series, the Emmy-nominated actors, who first worked together in the 2014 sci-fi film “Young Ones,” went toe to toe as the most toxic married couple ever. Although they often despised each other on screen, shooting their final scenes together was heart wrenching for the stars.

Phoebe Fox, Adam Godley, Bayo Gbadamosi, Charity Wakefield, Douglas Hodge, Sacha Dhawan, Gwilym Lee and Belinda Bromilow also starred in “The Great.” The show was co-executive produced by Fanning, Hoult, Marian Macgowan, Mark Winemaker, Brittany Kahan Ward, Doug Mankoff and Andrew Spaulding, Ron West and Josh Kesselman.
