Hulu announced today that The Great has been picked up for a second season. The good news arrives six weeks after the satirical dramedy's premiere, which has performed well for the streaming service.

Since its May release, the hour-long series has been met with mostly positive reviews and healthy viewership. Per Hulu, The Great ranks as one of its best-performing original comedies.

Set in the 18th century, the show follows feminist trailblazer Catherine the Great, who experiences an unlikely rise and a spectacular reign as the longest running female leader in Russian history.

10 more episodes have been ordered for Season 2 of The Great, which should return sometime in 2021.
