The English - What We Know So Far


As one might expect this close to the series’ debut, there’s quite a lot of information about the new Western drama. Information has hardly been scarce about “The English” since it was first announced, with the 2020 Variety article above confirming the series would indeed front the formidable talent of Emily Blunt. Further casting announcements came in May of 2021, with The Hollywood Reporter confirming Blunt would be joined in “The English” by an all-star cast, including Chaske Spencer (“Wild Indian”), Rafe Spall (“The Ritual”), Ciarán Hinds (“There Will Be Blood”), Tom Hughes (“A Discovery of Witches”), Stephen Rea (“The Honorable Woman”), and Toby Jones (“The Mist”) among many others.

You might’ve noticed that’s a very, ahem, English cast. And yes, it’s a necessary bit of casting as English settlers will be at the heart of “The English” narrative. But it likely also has to do with the series being backed by the BBC and written, produced, and directed by British filmmaker Hugo Blick, whose past offerings include BBC hits like “Marion and Geoff” and “The Shadow Line,” along with the award-winning Sundance TV series “The Honorable Woman” and Netflix’s “Black Earth Rising.” The Western genre will be new territory for Blick, but given his pedigree, there’s little reason to suspect he won’t deliver the goods.
