Every Thursday night, you turn on your TV on and flip to CW44 for a brand new episode of Reign. You are instantly carried away to a land far, far away in a time many, many years ago. Life seemed so much simpler, yet so beautiful. The castles are immense and the landscapes are boundless. But guess what, folks… it’s all FAKE!

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s true. What you see when you tune in every Thursday is an illusion created by genius set builders, makeup artists and wardrobe designers. But, now that we know the truth, let’s journey beyond the smoke and mirrors. Let’s go behind the scenes of Reign with Adelaide Kane.
