Disney’s FX has released some new character posters for the upcoming limited series, “Great Expectation”, which is a coming-of-age story of an orphan nicknamed “Pip.” Dickens first released it in a series of weekly chapters beginning in December 1860 before it was subsequently published as a novel.

Here are the new character posters for the upcoming series:

The six-part limited series comes from Academy Award nominee and BAFTA Award-winning writer Steven Knight will feature a stellar cast including Ashley Thomas, Johnny Harris, Hayley Squires, Owen McDonnell, Trystan Gravelle, Rudi Dharmalingam and Matt Berry.

Knight will write and executive produce Great Expectations, which will also be executive produced by Tom Hardy, Ridley Scott, Dean Baker, David W. Zucker, Kate Crowe and Tommy Bulfin for the BBC. Great Expectations will be produced by FX Productions in association with the BBC, Scott Free and Hardy Son & Baker.

Great Expectations is the second Dickens adaptation penned by Knight, following the limited hit series A Christmas Carol. Great Expectations and A Christmas Carol are the first two in a series of adaptations of Dickens’ novels commissioned by Piers Wenger, former Director of Drama and Charlotte Moore, Chief Content Officer at the BBC and FX. The BBC and FX also partnered on the acclaimed drama series Taboo, starring Tom Hardy, written by Steven Knight and produced by Knight, Hardy, Chips Hardy, Scott, Baker and Crowe.

The six-part series from FX and BBC will premiere Sunday, March 26th 2023, exclusively on Hulu in the U.S. and feature the first two episodes. “Great Expectations” is produced in association with the BBC and will air the series in the UK. Internationally, it will be available to stream on Star+ in Latin America and on Disney+ under the Star banner at a later date.
