Riches is an upcoming British series set to explore Black families in Business. The series is created by Abby Ajayi, The First Lady creator, who will star Hugh Quarshie, Sarah Niles, and Deborah Ayorinde. The upcoming series announcement came in in early 2022, and its development went under waters for almost a year. It was only one year later that the series casting was made, and the series started filming that hope of seeing the series coming to our screens got resurfaced.
Now that the series has been set for a 2nd November release date on Amazon Prime and a later release date on ITV, we can finally say that the long wait was worth it in every aspect. Here is very little detail we know about the upcoming Drama series.
Riches Season 1 Release Date: When will it air?
After almost two years of waiting for the series’ debut, the show will be on Prime Video on the 2nd of December. The series announcement came in 2022, announcing that the Riches show will consist of six episodes, each recounting the story of the black-owned Business. The series casting came in 2021, and filming began in November 2021. We hope that the long wait will be worthwhile once the series premieres
