Here Comes The Plague – Reign, At San Diego Comic Con


Jaselle Martino writes from San Diego Comic Con,

French Court's Royalty joined us along with their executive producer Laurie McCarthy to spill on the upcoming season of the CW's hit show Reign. Adelaide Kane, Toby Regbo and Megan Follows promise more drama surrounding the court's newly minted King Francis (Regbo) and his bride Mary (Kane), who by the way is now Queen of three kingdoms.

While Kane assured us that Mary and Francis' marriage was "going well so far," McCarthy warned that Francis and Mary will face countless obstacles, both "political" and "personal." Now that King Henry II (Alan Van Sprang) is dead and the plague is now inside with walls of the French Court we are to expect more deaths. McCarthy teases that the deaths from the plague could begin as early as episode 1 "Not everyone will survive it, among our people as well as a percentage of the regional population."



Season 2 delves deeper into the castle walls. Follows (Queen Catherine) even promises more tension between her and Kane's character, Queen Mary, which is only fueled by the fact that Mary still hasn't produced an heir to the throne. Speaking of heir, Francis, Mary and Lola will now have to deal the birth of Francis and Lola's child, Kane noted, which could get "wwkward". Follows added "Mary and I now have something in common… as I know what it's like to have a husband and a bastard child, so now Mary is being introduced to the dynamic of what it's like between men and women in power at French court."

So no more Mary – Francis – Bash? Well Kane said that while she believes "they'll always have a special relationship" she doesn't think in they will evolve any further.

Reign's second season returns to CW this Fall on Thursday Oct. 2, at 9/8c.
