New Hulu Originals are coming thick and fast and this historical comedy drama is the latest to hit the streaming service. Read on to find out how to watch The Great online from anywhere in the world, including for free where possible.
A satirical take on the reign of Catherine the Great and her odious husband Peter, it stars Maleficent’s Elle Fanning as the long-reigning Russian ruler and Nicholas Hoult (Skins, X-Men: Days of Future Past) as her partner in crime. Directed by Oscar-nominated writer Tony McNamara (‘The Favourite’), The Great follows Catherine as she rises to become one of Europe’s most powerful monarchs, having arrived in Russia as a German outsider.Seemingly playing hard and loose with recorded events, it promises a darkly fun, fictionalised version of her ascent – with Katherine out to kill her husband and take the throne for herself after realising the depths of his depravity.Alongside Fanning and Hoult, there’s a strong supporting cast with Sacha Dhawan, who plays The Master in Doctor Who, Bohemian Rhapsody’s Gwilym Lee, and Charity Wakefield (Jack Whitehall’s sister in Bounty Hunters).Here’s how to watch The Great and stream every episode of the new Hulu show online for free no matter where you on the planet.
