Tv Season Info

In the second season of this historical drama, the coronation of Francis (Toby Regbo) and Mary (Adelaide Kane) takes place, and they begin to rule over a France that's in turmoil as tensions mount between Catholics and Protestants. Greer (Celina Sinden) discovers that her fiancé may convert to Protestantism, and though that puts them in a precarious position, she marries him anyway. Meanwhile, new mother Lola (Anna Popplewell) is pursued romantically by Narcisse (Craig Parker), a powerful and shady noble who is now often present at court. Also new at court is Claude (Rose Williams), Francis' long-absent younger sister, who does not receive a warm welcome from her mother, Catherine (Megan Follows). The outgoing Claude flirts with Narcisse and Bash (Torrance Coombs), though Mary and Francis try to arrange a marriage between her and Louis Condé (Sean Teale), a noble who harbors a passion for Mary.

Critic Reviews for Reign Season 2

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

It's season 2 of Reign and you know what that means! Royal intrigue and hot bodice-ripping teen sex!

Oct 17, 2014 | Full Review…

The plague served as a great stand-in for the king's madness, bringing a dramatic weight with it that kept viewers on their toes.

Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…

This is also a show that's unafraid to directly examine power, which is one of the reasons it's succeeded as more than a compendium of ridiculous moments.

Oct 3, 2014 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

After a rollercoaster freshman season, the series reshuffled the deck with "The Plague," a densely plotted episode that worked almost as a standalone outing but also went far in establishing new threads for Reign's sophomore year.

Oct 17, 2014 | Full Review…

It was a decent episode to set up the groundwork for the rest of the season.

Oct 7, 2014 | Full Review…

Overall this premiere set the tone for what looks like a much darker season this year, and I liked it.

Oct 3, 2014 | Full Review…

While the tone was somber, we were still treated to sparking dialog delivered with the appropriate intensity to match every scene.

Audience Reviews for Reign: Season 2

  • Aug 01, 2020
    Some reworking of history is galling but the actors are still making this a treat.
  • May 13, 2020
    I think I'll stop this drama series at the beginning of season 2. This is highly innacurate with historic events and situations of the late medieval times.
  • Dec 03, 2019
    Season Two continues to deliver gorgeous costumes, slightly soapy drama, and the most beautiful, tanned, white-toothed 16th Century nobles you've ever seen - but I'm totally here for it. Adelaide Kane and Toby Regbo have wonderful chemistry and you find yourself really loving them - even though you know the show probably won't completely rewrite history and give them a truly happy ending. Now that the show has got past the will they?/or won't they? they do throw a mix of ridiculous spats and jealousies and real, touching drama the royals' way. The supporting stories are often just as good - I enjoy Greer and Kenna (but find Anna Popplewell annoying, cloying, and grasping). But the true Queen of this entire series is Megan Follows as Catherine de Medici - she is complicated, conspiring, and ruthless - such a rich character. Follows is perfect - especially in the snide delivery of her biting one-liners.

    As a fan from season 1, I can appreciate the story and have become emotionally invested in characters. The scenery and wardrobe are just as gorgeous as the 1rst! Like I've already said, there's a great mix of History and fantasy!

    One of the best TV series out there. I have loved every episode of this fictional historical drama. Adelaide Kane is brilliant as Mary and the rest of the cast have a way of making you love their characters too. A must see in my books. Can't wait for season 4!
