The year is 2022, and the theme is female empowerment. The journey of empowerment for most women must invariably begin with an atrocity committed against them and it is during that process of uprising that they discover what they truly stand for.
The English is an upcoming western drama that explores this theme of women empowerment. The 19th century was a difficult period for any individual living in the expanse of the United States, but it was especially unforgiving to women. The series shows what a driven woman is truly capable of and her transformation into a vengeful mother can be epitomized in the ominous phrase, “if wishes were where we would be, then we would be where we are not.”
The English Season 1 Release Date: When will it air?
The new series will premiere on November 11th, 2022, on Amazon video. Any series watchers who have a taste for powerful women exacting their will on the world will be in for a treat as this date is official and has been confirmed across multiple platforms such as IMDb and Amazon.
The English Season 1 Cast: Who will be coming?
There is yet more good news for fans of western dramas as the cast for The English is spearheaded by none other than Emily Blunt (Jungle Cruise) herself who stars in the role of the vengeful mother, Cornelia Locke. Unless you have been living under a rock of some sort for the last 15 years or so, Emily Blunt ought to be very familiar.
She is a Hollywood A-lister who has worked on films such as Edge of Tomorrow, A Quiet Place, Sicario, and The Devil Wears Prada. The rest of the cast is completed by competent actors such as Chaske Spencer, Stephen Rea, Rafe Spall, Tom Hughes, Toby Jones, Valerie Pachner, and Malcolm Story.
The English Season 1 Plot: What will happen?
The first season of the English will revolve around Cornelia Locke, a woman in the 19th century United States who has lost her son to violence. She enters a dark world where no one is spared from the harshness of the environment or the individuals that reside in it. After her son is killed, she begins a journey to find the man who killed her beloved son. In her mind, the man is responsible for the death of her son and she cannot rest until she has enacted revenge against this individual.
The English Season 1 Trailer: When can we watch?
The trailer for the first season of The English was released in early September. In the 46-second clip, Cornelia is seen exploring the vast wilderness of America with a forlorn expression on her face. It is easy to see that she is sad, but an aura of intent comes with her mannerisms. The clip shows the harsh environment that Cornelia has launched herself into; there are aggressive-looking native Americans as well as dead people hanging from ropes or barb wire.
The clip makes it very clear that this journey that Cornelia is undertaking is not for the faint of heart, nor for the weak of body. The place must exert its toll on the individual. From the trailer, it is evident that there will be a huge element of drama and thriller, and it is what we- as the audience, came to see.
