‘The Gentlemen’ Trailer: Theo James, Giancarlo Esposito, Ray Winstsone and More in Guy Ritchie’s Big Netflix Series


Netflix has unveiled the official trailer for The Gentlemen, an 8-episode series from Guy Ritchie (Snatch, RocknRolla, Sherlock Holmes), expanding the world he set up in the 2019 film of the same name.

The plot finds Eddie Horniman (Theo James) unexpectedly inheriting his father’s sizeable country estate – only to discover it’s part of a cannabis empire. Moreover, a host of unsavoury characters from Britain’s criminal underworld want a piece of the operation. Determined to extricate his family from their clutches, Eddie tries to play the gangsters at their own game. However, as he gets sucked into the world of criminality, he begins to find a taste for it.

“The world of The Gentlemen is a little bit of me,” Ritchie told Netflix last November. “We’re looking forward to bringing fans back into that world, introducing new characters and their stories, and I am excited to be doing it with this extremely talented cast.”

Ritchie created the series, serves as co-writer and executive producer, and directed the first two episodes. He’s gathered quite the ensemble, including Kaya Scodelario, Daniel Ings, Joely Richardson, Vinnie Jones, Giancarlo Esposito, Chanel Cresswell, Michael Vu, Max Beesley, Jasmine Blackborow, Harry Goodwins, Dar Salim, Pearce Quigley, Ruby Sear, Peter Serafinowicz, Ray Winstone, and Guz Khan.

All 8 episodes of The Gentlemen premiere on Netflix on March 7th.
