REIGN: What You Need to Know About the New The CW Series

October 17, 2013 by  

There are approximately one million new shows debuting this season*, and it’s going to get difficult to keep track of them all.

To help you out, for every new show, I’m going to basically create a hub of info on the day of the premiere — pilot photos, my quick take on the pilot (or what I’ve seen so far), what’s been written about it so far, and when you can watch it.

Next up, REIGN…

Reign

Picture 5 of 5

Reign -- "Pilot" -- Image Number: RE100b_172r.jpg -- Pictured (L-R): Torrance Coombs as Bash, Alan Van Sprang as King Henry II, Rossif Sutherland as Nostradamus, Anna Walton as Diane, and Megan Follows as Catherine de' Medici -- Photo: Joss Barratt/The CW -- © 2013 The CW Network, LLC.

*Maybe not scientifically correct. But close enough.

The CW’s description: “After spending a childhood safely hidden away in a monastery, a teenage Mary Stuart (Adelaide Kane) arrives in France where she has been sent to secure Scotland’s strategic alliance by formalizing her arranged engagement to the French King’s dashing son, Prince Francis (Toby Regbo). Further complicating things is Bash (Torrance Coombs), Francis’ handsome, roguish half-brother and Francis’ mother, Queen Catherine (Megan Follows). When the strong-willed Queen learns of a prophecy that marriage to Mary will cost Francis his life, she is determined to save her son, no matter how many others have to pay with their lives.”

My take: I’ve heard a lot of people saying this is Mary, Queen of Scots-meets-GOSSIP GIRL. And while that kind of works, in terms of quality, it’s Mary, Queen of Scots-meets-GOSSIP GIRL season 6.

REIGN premieres tonight at 9 PM on The CW.
