Adam Milch will executive produce, and Georgia Hunter, author of “We Were the Lucky Ones,” will co-executive produce.

“We Were The Lucky Ones” has previously been released on Hulu and Hulu On Disney+ in the United States on March 28th 2024. The series has also already be released on Disney+ in Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Roger’s Take: It’s great to see “We Were The Lucky Ones” finally getting a UK release and once again, it’s a shame that the European release was held back, since for some reason, Disney seems to prefer binge dropping some shows all at once rather than keeping inline with a global release.
