The Gilded Age Release Date, Cast, Plot

The Gilded Age

If you are into Victorian history shows, chances are The Gilded is going to be right up your alley. The show is much like a prequel to Downtown Abbey and is set almost 30 years before the backdrop of the show. Set on a backdrop of the 1880s New York and the movers and shakers around that time, the movie has pretty much managed to grasp the beautiful tale of the era.

For the viewers who have been looking forward to watching this costume drama that is going to be available on HBO in the United States and Sky Atlantic across the UK, is finally going to come around in 2022, so your wait is over.

What can the audience expect from The Gilded?

The Gilded Age

Like mentioned, the story of this series is based against the backdrop of New York in the 1880s, referring to the industrial boom during that phase. The show further follows the life of the comings and goings of the upper echelons in New York.

The story follows the life of Marion Brook, an orphaned daughter of a Union general who later moves to New York to live with her aunts, Agnes van Rhijn and Ada Brook. The show is based on the stupendously rich neighbours and the kind of backdrops that you’d expect to witness during that time.

However, the producers and creators of the show have clarified that the show Gilded Age is not necessarily a prequel to Downtown Abbey but is based on a lot before that.

When will The Gilded be released?

Although HBO hasn’t given an official date for the release of the show yet, there have been rumors that the show is likely going to be released by 2022, but things are still under the wraps. The majority of the filming of the show has been done in New York, which was pretty much expected, mainly because the show is based in that city.

This nine-part show is going to be released in 2022 on HBO and Sky Atlantic, depending on the location you are going to watch it from. There aren’t any reports where the show will be released internationally.
