The “Reign” is Coming.

ReignReign is set to hit our TV screens on Tuesday night on FOX8.

It is an American historical fiction television series following the early years of Mary, Queen of Scots, in 1557 France.The leading roles are played by a combination of Australian, Canadian, and English actors. On February 13, 2014, The CW renewed the series for a second season.

Set in 1557 France, the highly fictionalized series follows the life of Mary, Queen of Scots, at French court while she awaits her marriage to the future Francis II of France, to whom she has been engaged since they were six. At court, Mary has to contend with the changing politics and power plays, as well as her burgeoning feelings for Francis and the romantic attentions from Francis’ bastard half-brother, Bash. Francis’ mother, Catherine de’ Medici, is secretly trying to prevent the marriage following Nostradamus’s confidential prediction that the marriage will lead to Francis’ death.

The series also follows the affairs of Mary’s Scottish handmaidens Kenna, Aylee, Lola and Greer, who are searching for husbands of their own at court.

Aussie actress Adelaide Kane, best known here for playing Lolly Allen on Neighbours, is the main star of the series playing Mary.
