MGM+ today revealed an official trailer and release date for Belgravia: The Next Chapter, a continuation of the hit historical drama series, premiering on MGM+ January 14th, 2024 at 9:00 p.m. EDT/PDT.
From the team behind Downton Abbey and The Gilded Age, Belgravia: The Next Chapter follows the next generation of Belgravia’s residents alongside a few familiar faces in 1871, three decades after the events depicted in the 2020 limited series and based on the novel of the same name.
Developed and written by critically acclaimed playwright and screenwriter Helen Edmundson (Dalgliesh, National Theatre Live: Small Island), the series tells the love story of Frederick Trenchard, the third Lord Trenchard, and his new love interest, Clara Dunn, who is a newcomer to London society. Unaware that his birth was the product of an affair between his mother Susan and the scoundrel John Bellasis, a troubled childhood has left Frederick deeply insecure, which challenges his courtship of, and marriage to, Clara.
The series stars Harriet Slater (Pennyworth) as Clara Trenchard (née Dunn), Benjamin Wainwright (World on Fire) as Frederick Trenchard, Edward Bluemel (A Discovery of Witches) as Dr. Stephen Ellerby, Toby Regbo (The Last Kingdom) as Rev. James Trenchard, Hannah Onslow (Ridley Road) as Emily Dunn, Sophie Thompson (Gosford Park) as Mrs. Dunn, Claude Perron (Workingirls) as The Marquise D’Etagnac, Sophie Winkleman (Sanditon) as the Duchess of Rochester, and Elaine Cassidy (The Wonder) as Davison. Alice Eve as Susan Trenchard and Richard Goulding as Oliver Trenchard also return from the original series.
“I’m so proud of everything this dedicated team accomplished with the original Belgravia series. I cannot wait for the world to return to Belgravia for this new iteration, expertly crafted by Helen Edmundson,” said Julian Fellowes, Executive Producer. “Old and new fans alike will be swept off their feet with an emotionally engaging story, memorable characters, and brilliant production and costume design,” he added.
