First Look Images Revealed For Upcoming Disney+ Original Series “Renegade Nell”

Disney+ just dropped a sneak peek at the upcoming UK Original Series, “Renegade Nell.” It’s set to hit screens worldwide in Spring 2024, exclusively on Disney+. The series is the brainchild of BAFTA award-winning writer Sally Wainwright, the genius behind “Happy Valley” and “Gentleman Jack,” and it’s being directed by Ben Taylor, known for his work on “Sex Education” and “Catastrophe.”

Louisa Harland, from “Derry Girls,” is taking on the lead role of Nell. She’s this quick-witted and fearless young woman who gets wrongly accused of murder and ends up becoming the notorious highwaywoman of 18th-century England. And just when things can’t get any wilder, a magical spirit named Billy Blind, played by Nick Mohammed from “Ted Lasso,” enters the scene.

The cast is stacked! Frank Dillane is Nell’s unpredictable friend Charles Devereux, Adrian Lester is the cunning Earl of Poynton, and Alice Kremelberg plays Sofia Wilmot, a widow on a mission for power. Joely Richardson is an eccentric newspaper magnate, and Pip Torrens is Lord Blancheford, Sofia’s dad. Jake Dunn is Sofia’s bullying brother, and Ényì Okoronkwo is a spirited stable boy named Rasselas, joining Nell and her sisters on their quest for freedom.
