The plot of season 2

In the new season of The Great Caterina, she conquers the Russian throne, but she soon realizes that dethroning her husband was just the beginning. Now he has to face the difficulties of “liberating” a country that does not want to be liberated. He will have to fight against the court, his faithful and even his mother (played by guest star Gillian Anderson) in an attempt to bring the Enlightenment to Russia. In the meantime she also finds herself fighting against her heart with Pietro who goes from being the hated husband to being a prisoner, or perhaps, an ally or a lover … Caterina will learn firsthand that to change a country you have to let it you change, that there is a fine line between idealism and disappointment, and that becoming “the great” takes more than you could have imagined.
