Executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, Masters of Air is landing on AppleTV+ in January.

If the lack of something like The Pacific or Band of Brothers has left a void of quality war drama in your life, we’ve got excellent news for you.

Masters of Air, a limited series from the makers of the above TV shows, finally has a release date. The series was announced back in 2019, but like most things in Hollywood, has faced severe delays, but the wait is finally over.

AppleTV+ has given the highly anticipated series a release date and it’s only a few months away. You can catch Masters of Air on AppleTV+ starting from 26 January.

The nine-episode limited series, which is based on Donald L. Miller’s book of the same name, will air weekly, concluding in March. The series follows the 100th Bomb Group (also known as the “Bloody Hundredth”) as they perform bomb raids from up in the air. The series will portray the extreme physical and mental challenges the men faced.

Austin Butler, Callum Turner, Anthony Boyle, Nate Mann, Rafferty Law, Barry Keoghan, Josiah Cross, Branden Cook, and Ncuti Gatwa are starring in the series. Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and Gary Goetzman are executive producing while John Orloff is on writing duties.

“’Masters of the Air’ is a salute to the brave men of the 8th Air Force, who, through their courage and brotherhood, helped defeat Nazi Germany in World War II,” said executive producer Gary Goetzman in a statement.

“Tom and Steven have always wanted to visualize cinematically what our author Don Miller has called, this ‘singular event in the history of warfare.’ We’re thrilled that Apple TV+ has given us the opportunity to combine the efforts of so many talented people, on-screen and behind the camera, to tell this important story.”

Apple are on a roll with their TV shows. Ted Lasso has been their biggest success so far, but you’d be a fool to miss Silo or The Changeling. We sincerely hope Masters of Air will be worth the long wait for its arrival.
