Posted Filed under

The Netflix series of The Gentlemen offers another slice of the world seen in Ritchie’s 2020 movie of the same name. 

Director Guy Ritchie loves his gangsters, doesn’t he? While he usually operates on the big screen, the director has pivoted towards streaming for his latest project.

Partnering with Netflix, he’s serving up an eight-part sequel series to his 2019 movie The Gentlemen. The television show, which bears the same name, features all-new characters but takes place in that same world.
