If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if an American showed up to disrupt Queen Charlotte’s diamond ball, The Buccaneers may become your new obsession.
As you patiently wait for Bridgerton season three, a brand-new bodice ripper is coming your way this fall. Shortly after the Regency era of shows like Bridgerton and Sanditon, a group of young Americans are about to disrupt Victorian London in the new Apple TV+ series, The Buccaneers, premiering in November 2023.
“Girls with money, men with power. New money, old secrets,” reads a series description released by Apple TV+. “A group of fun-loving young American girls explode into the tightly corseted London season of the 1870s, kicking off an Anglo-American culture clash as the land of the stiff upper lip is infiltrated by a refreshing disregard for centuries of tradition. Sent to secure husbands and titles, the buccaneers’ hearts are set on much more than that, and saying ‘I do’ is just the beginning….”
Sound like something you want to binge right now? Here’s everything we know.
First and foremost, when is The Buccaneers coming out?
The first three episodes of The Buccaneers will be available on November 8, 2023. From there, new episodes will drop weekly until December 13.*
How many episodes?
There will be eight episodes in season one.
What’s its source material?
Like Bridgerton, The Buccaneers is based on a novel…for the most part. The series was inspired by the late Edith Wharton’s unfinished novel, The Buccaneers, which was released in 1938 after the Pulitzer Prize–winning author’s death the year prior. A TV miniseries of the same name aired on BBC One in 1995, starring Carla Gugino, Alison Elliott, Mira Sorvino, and Rya Kihlsted.
Who is in the cast now?
The most recognizable name is probably Christina Hendricks, who will be portraying Mrs. St. George. She will be joined by other known players Kristine Froseth (The Society) and Alisha Boe (13 Reasons Why), who are set to star as Nan St. George and Conchita Closson, respectively.
Other members of the girl gang include Josie Totah as Mabel Elmsworth, Aubri Ibrag as Lizzy Elmsworth, Imogen Waterhouse as Jinny St. George, and Mia Threapleton as Honoria Marable. As for the guys, we’ve got Josh Dylan as Lord Richard Marable; Guy Remmers as Theo, Duke of Tintagel; Matthew Broome as Guy Thwarte; and Barney Fishwick as Lord James Seadown.
Who else is involved?
Writer and series creator Katherine Jakeways fronts an all-female creative team, including BAFTA Award–winning director Susanna White and BAFTA Award nominee Beth Willis.
Is there a trailer?
There sure is! On October 4, AppleTV+ released the first trailer for the series—and it has everything: shirtless men, love triangles, dreamy costumes…. Just watch it for yourself.
