The new production comes from writer Debbie Horsfield (Poldark) and producer Mammoth Screen for the US network PBS Masterpiece. It’s the third television adaptation of the works of John Galsworthy, tackled by the BBC in 1967, and ITV in 2002 with Damian Lewis and Gina McKee.

The new take on The Forsyte Saga

The new version boasts an impressive cast led by Francesca Annis. She’s joined by True Blood’s Stephen Moyer, Danny Griffin (Fate: The Winx Saga), Tuppence Middleton (Our House) and Eleanor Tomlinson (One Day).

Plus, Jack Davenport (The Morning Show), Joshua Orpin (Titans), Millie Gibson  and Tom Durant Pritchard (This Is Going To Hurt). Also, Josette Simon (Anatomy of a Scandal), Jamie Flatters (Avatar: The Way Of Water) and Owen Igiehon (Disclaimer).

Finally, Susan Hampshire – who appeared in the BBC’s original adaptation – will also appear.

The series will have a six-part run, with plans to be a returning series.

Writer Debbie Horsfield explains:

“It was an honuor to be asked to write a bold new reimagining of Galsworthy’s epic saga. Our show is in part a prequel to the events of the first book, but also an opportunity to expand the world and place the women of the family center stage. It’s a love letter to the original story while offering an exciting new perspective.”

The Forsyte Saga‘s directors are Meenu Gaur (Murder Is Easy) and Annetta Laufer (Get Millie Black). The producer is Sarah Lewis (The Long Shadow). Filming began in May, taking place in locations across England, Wales and Italy.
