Despite having a very strong lead-in (The Vampire Diaries), the Reign TV show drew only mediocre ratings last season. The CW renewed it for a second season anyway. Will it survive to see a third season or will it be cancelled this time around? Stay tuned.
This season of Reign picks up after the death of King Henry and Mary has finally become queen. Is it all that she expected? The cast of this historical drama includes Adelaide Kane, Torrance Coombs, Megan Follows, Toby Regbo, Celina Sinden, Caitlin Stasey, Anna Popplewell, Jonathan Keltz, and Sean Teale.
