Apple TV+ has just dropped your new favourite obsession. Arriving on the streamer on 8 November, new period drama "The Buccaneers" is about to fill the "Bridgerton"-shaped hole in your life as we wait for season 3. Inspired by the Pulitzer Prize-winning, unfinished novel by Edith Wharton, the show follows four young women from American high society, who are sent across the pond to secure husbands and titles.

According to an Apple TV+ press release, the arrival of these fun-loving girls kicks off "an Anglo-American culture clash as the land of the stiff upper lip is infiltrated by a refreshing disregard for centuries of tradition." Its central conflict of old and new is also reflected in the show's use of modern language, and a contemporary soundtrack (think Taylor Swift, Boygenius, Gracie Abrams), even though it is set in the 1870s. The first trailer for the show promises sexual tension, elaborate balls, fireworks, as well as the exploration of topics including class structures, women's roles in society, and race. It is aptly soundtracked by Olivia Rodrigo's "All-American Bitch", with the Gen Z star also being rumoured to be debuting new music on the show.

The story has been adapted for television before, most famously in 1995, starring Carla Gugino as Nan St George. However, without an official ending, each version has the space to explore and interpret different possibilities for the central characters' stories, and this iteration is no different.

Playing our central socialites are Kristine Froseth ("The Society"), Alisha Boe ("13 Reasons Why"), Josie Totah ("Jessie"), Imogen Waterhouse ("The Outpost"), who is Suki Waterhouse's sister, Aubri Ibrag, and Mia Threapleton ("I Am Ruth"). But no steamy romance series is complete without its leading men, right? And when the men in question are young, up and coming Brits, playing dashing Dukes, Lords, and hedonistic high society, we will be paying a keen interest. Given that the show had an all-female creative team too, we have high hopes. Read on to find out more about the eligible bachelors of AppleTV+'s "The Buccaneers."
