Are you a fan of Pride and Prejudice? Bonkers for Bridgerton? Insensible for Sense and Sensibility? If so, we think you might love Apple TV’s upcoming period drama The Buccaneers. Here’s everything you need to know about the romantic new show… 

What is The Buccaneers about? 

The eight-episode drama, which is inspired by Edith Wharton’s unfinished final novel of the same name, follows a group of fun-loving young American girls, who explode into the London season of the 1870s from New York, kicking off an Anglo-American culture clash. The synopsis reads: "The land of the stiff upper lip is infiltrated by a refreshing disregard for centuries of tradition. Sent to secure husbands and titles, the buccaneers’ hearts are set on much more than that, and saying 'I do’ is just the beginning.".
