Last night, the CW premiered Reign, which — originally titled Gossip Girl: Old Timey France — follows a teenage Mary Queen of Scots as she is moved from a quiet convent in the country and thrown into the sexy and devious world of 16th century French court.
Mary, Queen of Scots — also known as Mary Stuart or Mary I Of Scotland — was executed at the age of
25 44, but before that, she was queen regnant of Scotland and then queen consort of France. Now she's being brought back to life in Reign, a new series on the CW, home of Gossip Girl and The Carrie Diares.
The CW — home of Gossip Girl and the Vampire Diaries — is moving forward on a project about Mary Queen of Scots titled Reign. The show has been described as a "fantastical reimagining" of Mary's teenage years.
