Yes, that’s a baby bump Fanning is sporting, as Catherine becomes a mother to both Russia and a new baby in Season 2.

The series puts a satirical and comedic drama spin on the rise of Catherine the Great who went from being an outsider to becoming the country’s youngest reigning female ruler. In Season 1, it follows Catherine’s arrival in Russia as she prepares for her arranged marriage with Emperor Peter (Nicholas Hoult). Instead of finding the happy life she imagined, Catherine discovers she’s been thrown into a dark world, that she becomes determined to change.
