Highway robbery, murderous Tudors and fancy fashion houses abound in Disney’s slate of UK productions for next year.

With a film and TV industry slightly less hampered by Hollywood strike action, Disney Plus have confirmed 2024 air dates for a bunch of UK-based series.

BAFTA-winner Sally Wainwright’s (Happy Valley, Gentleman Jack) new series, Renegade Nell, has been locked in for a Spring 2024 release. Starring Louisa Harland (Orla from Derry Girls) as the titular rebel, the show finds a young woman framed for murder and inadvertently becoming the most notorious highwaywoman in 18th century England. Throw in a magical spirit played by Ted Lasso's Nick Mohammed, and we’ve got a proper fantasy action-adventure series on our hands.

Also confirmed is the second series of award-winning comedy Extraordinary, which stars Máiréad Tyers as the only non-powered person in a world full of superheroes and is arriving in “early 2024”, and a four-part adaptation of C.J. Sansom’s murder mystery series, Shardlake, starring Sean Bean. There’s also a new adaptation of Jilly Cooper’s Rivals on the way, which has David Tennant and Danny Dyer in it.

On the factual side, Dua Lipa has executive produced Camden, a documentary series on some of the biggest music acts in the UK, and a new reality series, In Vogue, will follow the lives of the fashion mag’s top editors, both confirmed for sometime in 2024.
