The first season of REIGN saw Mary, Queen of Scots as faithful friend and young wife to the future King of France, Francis despite every effort of his mother, Catherine de Medici, to prevent the union. Season Two begins with Mary and Francis at the helm of a nation rocked by the plague. From the ashes, powerful lords will rise with vendettas, taking lives, and testing Mary and Francis’ commitment to each other and to their people. Meanwhile, a mysterious threat snatches victims from village streets and castle corridors. Is it a mythical creature or one who may actually walk among us?
