TORONTO (September 23, 2015) – Royal intrigue, ruthless back-stabbing, and explosive scandals parade to E!, as REIGN moves to a new home for Season 3 beginning Thursday, Oct. 8 at 9 p.m. ET. Joining the one-hour drama as a series regular this season is Toronto’s Rachel Skarsten (LOST GIRL) as Elizabeth, Queen of England, cousin to Mary, Queen of Scots (Adelaide Kane, The Devil’s Hand). In the third season, Mary and King Francis (Toby Regbo, U Want me to Kill Him?) attempt to move beyond the anger and hurt they have caused each other, realizing that they are more powerful together than apart. Still early in her reign, Elizabeth faces opposition on all sides, and struggles to hold onto both power and love. For an exclusive sneak peek at the third season click here. Seasons 1 and 2 of REIGN are currently streaming on CraveTV.   Reign -- "Three Queens, Two Tigers" --  Pictured: Rachel Skarsten as Queen Elizabeth -- Photo: Sven Frenzel/The CW
