Thanks to the BBC, we’ve got an interesting clip from Wolf Hall – but it’s from the last episode, so spoiler alert if you don’t know what happens to Anne Boleyn, I guess. But look, adorable baby Elizabeth! Hilarious glowering Henry! This is great. Wolf Hall premieres on PBS on April 5th.
Ooh, this long (four minute!) trailer makes Wolf Hall look even better than I’d hoped/expected. It’s based on Hilary Mantel’s novels and stars Mark Rylance, Damian Lewis, and Claire Foy. It will premiere on PBS on April 5th.
We already saw the BBC trailer for Tudor miniseries Wolf Hall, based on the novel by Hilary Mantel, but hey, let’s take a look at the PBS version too! (I mean, it’s the same show, just a different trailer.) Wolf Hall stars Mark Rylance and Damian Lewis and will premiere on Masterpiece on April 5th.

We’ve got a bunch of happy British TV adaptation news! First of all, Call the Midwife has been renewed for a fifth season by the BBC. No official word from PBS yet, but they’ll probably keep airing it. Season four production just wrapped recently. Season five will include a holiday special and will take the timeline of the show to 1961. Interesting!
And we’ve got two Masterpiece premiere dates: The miniseries based on Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall will premiere on PBS on April 5th. The Tudor story stars Damian Lewis and Mark Rylance. And mystery series Grantchester, starring James Norton, will come to PBS starting January 18th. The show is based on James Runcie’s Sidney Chambers mysteries and features a village vicar solving crimes in the 1950s. Anyone read the books yet? I’ll try to pick the first one up soon.
Via MTV, we have a new trailer for Julian Fellowes’s version of Romeo & Juliet, which stars Hailee Steinfeld, Douglas Booth, Ed Westwick, Damian Lewis, Paul Giamatti, and more.
