Kate Winslet impresses as the hard-edged leader of a modern European regime. 

Updated 21/11/23: Sky reveal the official trailer for The Regime, but there’s still no confirmed start date.

It’s been almost eight months since we first got a taste of Kate Winslet in her role as Chancellor.

The show, from Succession‘s Will Tracy, follows the unravelling of a modern European regime across a single year. It looks to be wickedly funny, although the earlier teaser revealed dark undertones too.

The Regime is billed as coming soon to Sky Atlantic and Streaming Service NOW in 2024.

However, in the US, HBO have set a premiere date of Sunday, March 3rd at 9 pm, so there’s a fair chance we’ll see it then too.
