Recently I was scrolling through Netflix trying to find a new show to watch, I came across this interesting show. At first I thought that it was going to be a cliché and very predictable. Boy, was I wrong. This show is action packed with many heart stopping moments that make you feel like you are about to explode. (In a good way) As of today, there are a total of 2 seasons, all of which are on Netflix. Thank goodness! As soon as it begins, you are automatically hooked.
Reign is not your usual story. The show’s main characters are Queen Mary of Scotland, Prince Francis of France, Sebastian the Bastard son of Francis’ father(aka Francis’ step brother), The King and Queen of France, and Mary’s ladies in waiting. A few days after Mary was born, her father had passed away in a battle and automatically made Mary, the Queen of Scotland. Immediately, her crown was threatened by the English and Mary was in constant danger as a young child. The English wanted to take over Scotland and the only way they could do that is if they destroyed the crown. At the age of 6, her mother and the royalty of France decided to wed their two children for both Mary’s safety and a stronger bond between France and Scotland. She was to live in France to grow closer to Francis, while her mother took over Scotland for her, while she grew up. By age 9, Queen Catherine of France sent Mary away because the danger from the English was too great and dangerous for the French Royalty to deal with. They sent Mary to a convent and finally sent back for her once she had reached a prime age to marry Francis, the French Prince who is also a known player with the women. Once Mary arrives at the French Castle, she is greeted not only by the King, Queen, Prince, and the Bastard; she is greeted with heartbreak, death, jealousy, love, action, adventure, horror, pagans, sacrifices, and much more as she tried to survive and rule her country and her emotions.
Not only is Mary extremely beautiful, her dresses on the show are phenomenal and all the cast’s costumes are incredible!
This is my personal favorite 🙂
This show is based on the true Queen Mary and King Francis. Many of the characters are the same, but the story is not exactly the same as the one depicted on the show. Still, this show is an amazing show that will surely take your breath away and make your heart stop as well.
If you cannot watch this show on Netflix, you can find it on CW.
