    Fans of Downton Abbey are eagerly awaiting not one but two projects from creator Julian Fellowes early next year. We were already thrilled about Downton Abbey: A New Era, coming in March 2022, but there’s more historical melodrama on the way in January.

    The Gilded Age has had a long road to finally airing its first episode. The series was first announced way back in 2016, but hopefully, it’ll be worth the wait. The stellar cast, incredible costumes, and Fellowes’ trademark drama should make The Gilded Age a must-see event.

    Louisa Jacobson (Meryl Streep’s youngest daughter) will lead the ensemble as Marian Brook, an orphaned young woman living with her aunts. Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City) and Christine Baranski (The Good Fight) will play the aunts in question. Marian finds a friend in Peggy Scott, played by Broadway star Denée Benton, bringing welcome diversity to Fellowes’ new series. Carrie Coon, Morgan Spector, Taissa Farmiga, Harry Richardson, Audra McDonald, and Jeanne Tripplehorn will also feature.
