CW 35 - Reign

Over the course of the stormy first season of REIGN, Mary, Queen of Scots (Adelaide Kane) struggled to balance her many roles, as Queen of Scotland; as faithful friend to her ladies in waiting; as royal fiance, and later as young wife to the future King of France, Francis (Toby Regbo). Challenges came in every form: the reigning Queen Consort of
France, Francis's mother, Catherine de Medici (Megan Follows), did everything she could to destroy the union of Mary and Francis, even if that meant taking Mary's life. Francis and Mary were both torn by their duties to their respective nations, paving the way for Mary to form a close bond with Bash (Torrance Coombs), Francis's illegitimate brother,who could offer Mary a level of devotion the future king could not. King Henry (Alan Van Sprang) descended into madness, and a bloodthirsty menace in the woods threatened those within the castle and beyond the castle's walls, taking dozens of lives before it was ultimately annihilated.

REIGN begins its second season with Mary and Francis at the helm of a nation burning. France is rocked by the after effects of the plague, a disease that takes thousands upon thousands of lives across the land and ravages the stability of a nation. From the ashes, powerful lords will rise, carrying out personal, religious and political vendettas, taking lives and tearing at Mary and Francis, commitment to each other and to their people. Friendships will be tested, loved ones murdered and alliances betrayed. Meanwhile, a mysterious and deadly threat snatches victims from village streets and castle corridors,
leaving evidence of savagery that looks like the work of monsters: mythical creatures who are the stuff of nightmares, but who may actually walk among us, doing the Devil?s bidding.

The series stars Adelaide Kane (Teen Wolf) as Mary, Toby Regbo (One Day) as Prince Francis, Torrance Coombs (The Tudors) as Bash, Megan Follows (Anne of Green Gables) as Queen Catherine, Alan Van Sprang (The Tudors) as King Henry, Celina Sinden (newcomer) as Greer, Caitlin Stasey (newcomer) as Kenna, Anna Popplewell (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader) as Lola, and Jenessa Grant (Cyberbully) as Aylee.
