The first teaser trailer for HBO’s new historical series “The Gilded Age” has been released. The much-anticipated Downton Abbey spinoff has been delayed multiple times. Originally slated to premiere on NBC in 2018, the show was shifted to HBO in mid-2019, with production set to begin in 2020. Following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, filming for the project was delayed until 2021, with a 2022 premiere planned.
HBO has released a new teaser film that gives fans a first glance into 1880s New York City. Agnes van Rhijn, an old-money socialite, declares, “Power belongs to old New York.” “This isn’t the latest. She adds, “Never the new.” When she introduces Marian Brook, her young and destitute niece, it appears that not everyone is convinced by her statements. “It’s not quite as simple as that,” Agnes’ sister Ada Brook argues, providing fleeting glimpses of ballroom romances and the approaching modern age. Agnes, unfazed and unwavering, responds, “Yes, it is.”
Check out the complete trailer below:
“The Gilded Age”, created by Julian Fellowes, creator of Downton Abbey, acts as a prelude to its Britain-centric counterpart, concentrating on an earlier age. Marian is played by Louisa Jacobson, and she is an unwitting participant in an Old Money vs. New Money feud between her aunt Agnes (Christine Baranski) and their new neighbors, George and Bertha Russell (Morgan Spector and Carrie Coon). Cynthia Nixon portrays Ada Brook, Denee Benton portrays Peggy Scott, Taissa Farmiga portrays Gladys Russell, Simon Jones portrays Bannister, Harry Richardson portrays Larry Russell, Blake Ritson portrays Oscar van Rhijn, and Thomas Cocquerel portrays Tom Raikes. On January 24, 2022, “The Gilded Age” will launch.
