The Great is an American web series based on historical fiction, satire, dark comedy, and drama. We have also recognized seasons 1 and 2 of The Great as ‘The Great: An Occasionally True Story,’ and we know season 3 as ‘The Great: An Almost Entirely Untrue Story’. This might be because the show is loosely based on the life of Catherine II or Catherine the Great and her rise to power following the removal of her husband, Peter III, as Russia’s ruler. However, the facts and figures surrounding them in this show are fictional and bear no resemblance to the actual events.
The Great has been written and created by Tony McNamara and produced by Thruline Entertainment, Echo Lake Entertainment, Lewellen Pictures, Macgowan Pictures, Piggy Ate Roast Beef Productions, Civic Center Media, and MRC Television. The Great Season 1 premiered on 15th May 2020, and Season 2 came out on 19th November 2021. The third installment was released recently on 12th May 2023, making fans excited about the coming of The Great Season 4. This series released all the episodes on the OTT channel, Hulu, and has received a rating of 8.2 from IMDb and 89% from Rotten Tomatoes.
The Great Season 4 Release Date
As of May 2023, The Great Season 4 has neither been renewed nor canceled. However, the showrunners have expressed their interest in a fourth installment and would like to continue with the series. There is a chance of the show taking a turn or inserting a new plotline since the character of King Peter III was killed off. When The Great was under production, the crew decided to finish the series with six seasons.

The real Catherine ruled over her empire after the death of Peter, and this gives the makers of the show enough source material for a few more seasons. According to the previous release dates of the other installments, we can conclude that they can set The Great Season 4 release date around the end of 2024 or the beginning of 2025. But that remains to be seen after we receive an official confirmation from the creators.

The Great Season 4 Story
The Great is based on the life and crowning of Catherine the Great, who became the empress of Russia after overthrowing her husband, Peter III. Under her rule, Russia went through a major Renaissance. The first two seasons show us the rift between Catherine and her husband and how they try to pull each other down. The drama adds a bit of humor through various sequences, making it an entertaining watch.
The end of season 2 shows us how Catherine stabbed her husband, Peter, but was drowning in guilt. However, the man she stabbed was one of his doppelgangers, Pugachev, who had been hired to take risks on behalf of the king. Seeing Catherine’s remorse, the couple realizes that love has blossomed, and the episode ends on a cliffhanger.
The Great Season 3 takes off from where the previous season ended. This installment shows us the death of Peter after accidentally falling inside a frozen lake with his horse and the strategic marriage between Georgina and Paul. Catherine is devastated after her husband’s death but emerges from her depression as a new woman. The Great Season 4 might focus on how she strengthens herself and becomes sassier, along with her rise to power. It might also surprise us with sudden twists, but that remains to be seen.
The Great Season 4 Cast
The main cast of all three seasons includes Elle Fanning in the role of Catherine the Great, Nicholas Hoult as Peter III of Russia, and as Yemelyan Pugachev. We also see Phoebe Fox in the role of Marial, Sacha Dhawan as Grigory Orlov or Orlo, and Charity Wakefield in the role of Georgina Dymova.
There are other recurring characters from seasons 1, 2, and 3, mainly Leo Voronsky, played by Sebastian de Souza; King Hugo of Sweden, played by Freddie Fox; Peter the Great, played by Jason Isaacs; and Count Smolny, played by Alistair Green.
