New CW Teen Drama Resurrects Mary, Queen of Scots for New Teen Drama

If you’re missing Gossip Girl‘s queen Blair Wardorf and her minions, look no further than Reign, the CW’s new teen period drama which resurrects, in unsurprisingly frothy fashion, the sad and gruesome tale of the Scottish and French queen, Mary, Queen of Scots, who was executed at the age of 44. Of course, the CW series begins years before. And though, after watching the trailer above, it seems like a dark premise, Reign couldn’t come off much lighter. There’s already a dashing love interest (Prince Francis), plenty of sexual tension, and accessories befitting Serena van der Woodsen. [via Jezebel/TV Line]
