The Diplomat is an upcoming series that covers the story of a woman ambassador with a lot on her plate. The series announcement came in early this year, and already the series is almost wrapping up its production. Written by Debora Cahn and directed by Simon Cellan, the upcoming series has faced a lot of controversies from U.S. diplomats. The controversies were because the series protagonist does not fit the stereotypes of the normal U.S. ambassador; rich and a man. Well, here is everything we know about the upcoming series.
The Diplomat Season 1 Release Date: When will it be telecasted?
We do not know when the Political thriller series will be released, but it might be sooner than expected. The series filming has already started, and the show is being filmed in Île-de-France. Filming started in Mid-April, and initially, the series was expected to wrap its filming in September, but the show filming will be going up until November. The eight episodes will be an hour each, so the show’s post-production might take some time. With all the filming and post-production in mind, the earliest you should expect to see the series’ first season is by mid-2023.
The Diplomat Season 1 Plot: What will happen?
As the title suggests, the series is described as an intriguing political thriller set in the London Embassy in the Us. It follows a woman who lands a role as London’s ambassador, something she has yearned for a long time. However, with power comes many responsibilities, and the new mayor has to learn to balance her work and personal life as a crisis brews in the background that is about to disrupt her work and her peace of mind. Since the ambassador is a woman, we could also expect the series to explore the work dynamics and how it will affect her. This could include the people undermining her authority as she tries too hard to assert dominance and prove that she is the boss.
The Diplomat Season 1 Cast: Who’ll be appearing?
Keri Russell (Antlers), famous for her role as Elizabeth Jennings in The Americans, will play Katie, the ambassador, and the series protagonist. The actor has featured in several other series, including Dark Skies and Waitress. She will be playing alongside Rufus Sewell (Jigsaw), who will portray Hal Wyle, the former ambassador who does not hold as much relevance as he used to, and Ali Ahn, who will be portraying Eidra Graham, the realist and effective CIA in London. Other casts joining the team include ‘Penny Downie, Rory Kinnear (Penny Dreadful), Peal Mackie, Michael McKean (Breeders), Celia Imrie (Christmas on Mistletoe Farm), Bijan Daneshmand, David Gyasi (Carnival Row), Reza Diako, Jess Chanliau, Andre Lillis, and Christine Prouty.
The Diplomat Season 1 Trailer: When will it be coming?
Unfortunately, we do not have a trailer for the diplomat series, and we do not know how soon it will be available for streaming. The series filming has already started, and it is expected to run until the 222nd of November; therefore, there is a low chance that we will see the Diplomat series trailer in 2022. If filming finishes early enough, the series trailer will be released early next year before we get to binge on the entire show. In the meantime, there are several other shows that you can check out on Netflix.
