    Reign: Mary's Problems Continue to Multiply in the Dramatic First Trailer … 13 hours ago

    Queen Mary's got 99 problems, but Reign's move to Friday nights doesn't appear to be one of them. Despite the new timeslot, the lavish period drama is just as dramatic and addictive as ever, if the first trailer for Season 3, which The CW released on Friday, is any indication. In it, Mary (Adelaide Kane) recognizes that she can't take on two queens and live to tell the tale, but her cousin Queen Elizabeth ( Lost Girl's Rachel Skarsten), is still determined to de-throne her, and she has Catherine (Megan Follows) in her pocket threatening that "Scotland's queen will fall." Dang, Catherine! Meanwhile, Francis (Toby Regbo) promises to do everything he can to help Mary, and also there's a tiger. Look, I don't know what the tiger is there for, but aren't you intrigued? I know I am. Check out the trailer below and the hit the comments with your wishes for Season 3! Well, what do you think? Reign returns Friday, October 9 at 8pm on The CW. More »
