Here’s everything we know about Guy Ritchie’s The Gentlemen series coming to Netflix, from any release date updates to cast, plot details, and more.

The Gentlemen was a return to form for Ritchie in 2019, starring Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Colin Farrell, Hugh Grant, and Henry Golding in the sort of sweary crime caper that made him a household name.

The director has since worked on Wrath of Man, Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre, and he’s attached to helm the Hercules live-action remake – however, he’s also crafting a rare follow-up on the small screen.

He’ll be returning to the world of The Gentlemen for a new Netflix series – so, here’s what we know so far.

Is there a release date for The Gentlemen Netflix series?

While The Gentlemen currently doesn’t have a release date on Netflix, it’s expected to arrive later in 2023, although it could be sometime in 2024.

Ritchie has co-written the pilot’s script with Matthew Read and will also direct the first two episodes, while serving as an executive producer.

In a statement, Ritchie said: “The world of The Gentlemen is a little bit of me.

“I’m thrilled that with Netflix, Miramax and Moonage we have this opportunity to inhabit it once again. 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.”

Netflix hasn’t released many details about the show, recently classifying its release window as “TBD”, so we’ll update this space upon any further updates.

The Gentlemen Netflix series plot: What’s it about?

The official synopsis reads: “In The Gentlemen, high life meets pond life as the estranged son of an English aristocrat, Eddie (Theo James), inherits the family pile – only to discover that it’s sitting on top of the biggest weed farm in Europe. It’s all about old money, new money and show me the money.”
