Castles, corsets and sword fights —oh my! The CW's new drama Reign is worlds — not to mention centuries — away from the network's many vampires and superheroes. But just because the period drama, based on the life of Mary, Queen of Scots, takes place way back in 1557 doesn't mean it won't be filled with The CW's signature ingredients of romance, drama and yes, even horror.
"It's not the History Channel," star Adelaide Kane, who plays Mary, said at the Television Critics Association fall previews on Tuesday. "We trying to make a show that people will really enjoy and connect with."
