"Reign" (TV show) is a drama series that airs on The CW.

Hidden between the lines of the history books is the story of Mary Stuart, the young woman the world would come to know as Mary, Queen of Scots. Queen of Scotland since she was six days old, the teenage Mary is already a headstrong monarch — beautiful, passionate, and poised at the very beginning of her tumultuous rise to power. Arriving in France with four close friends as her ladies-in-waiting, Mary has been sent to secure Scotland's strategic alliance by formalizing her arranged engagement to the French king's dashing son, Prince Francis. But the match isn't signed and sealed, it depends more on politics, religion and secret agendas than affairs of the heart.

Prince Francis is intrigued by the fiery Scot, but like most young men, he resists the idea of settling down into marriage, especially when he has a history with a lady of the court and his own point of view on the wisdom of an alliance with Scotland. Still, an attraction between Mary and Francis is ignited. Further complicating things is Bash, Francis' roguish half-brother, who has a history of his own — despite his illegitimate birth, Bash is his father's favorite. And now that Bash has caught Mary's eye, a royal triangle may be forming. While at French Court, fierce foes and dark forces conspire to sabotage Mary's marriage to Francis and even threaten her life, until a mysterious shrouded guide becomes her ally. With danger and sexual intrigue around every dark castle corner, Mary rallies her ladies-in-waiting and steels herself, ready to rule the new land and balance the demands of her country and her heart.



The cast includes Adelaide Kane ("Teen Wolf") as Mary, Toby Regbo ("One Day") as Prince Francis, Torrance Coombs ("The Tudors") as Bash, Megan Follows ("Anne of Green Gables") as Queen Catherine, Alan Van Sprang ("The Tudors") as King Henry, Celina Sinden (newcomer) as Greer, Caitlin Stasey (newcomer) as Kenna, Anna Popplewell ("The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader") as Lola, and Jenessa Grant ("Cyberbully") as Aylee.

Season 2

The second season began with marriages and allegiances torn asunder, as well as the rise of enemies and political unrest. Mary, Queen of Scots, and her husband the King of France, Francis lived through the birth of the King's, but not the Queen's, son, the plague, and a nation divided. Catherine de Medici, realizing her limited power now that her daughter-in-law wears her crown, made a bold move to align herself with Mary's ultimate enemy, Queen Elizabeth of England. Bash, wounded from his failed marriage with Kenna, sought refuge with an ethereal woman with mysterious powers, while Greer was ousted from favor and took up a surprising occupation, where she flourished.

Season 3

The third season begins with Mary and Francis realizing that they are more powerful together than apart, believing there is hope for them to move forward, leaving behind the anger and hurt. It also introduces us to another royal court, that of Elizabeth, "Virgin" Queen of England. Still early in her reign, Elizabeth faces opposition on all sides, particularly from men who doubt a woman's ability to rule. Like Mary, and Catherine de Medici, she struggles to hold onto power and love; the women have much in common, and Mary and Elizabeth are reluctant foes, but foes nonetheless, each positioned by birth and fate to destroy all the other holds dear.

The CW's "Reign" is from CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television with executive producers Stephanie SenGupta ("Hawaii Five-0"), Laurie McCarthy ("The Ghost Whisperer"), Frank Siracusa ("Beauty and the Beast") and Brad Silberling ("Moonlight Mile"). The pilot was directed by Brad Silberling.
