Based on Eleanor Catton’s Booker Prize-winning novel, The Luminaries is an epic story of love, murder and revenge set on the Wild West Coast of New Zealand during the gold rush.
While the book focuses on prospector Walter Moody, the series, which was also written by Catton, follows Anna Wetherell, a fearless woman seeking her fortune in an unknown country who is caught up in a mystery that is weirder and more inexplicable than she could have imagined.
Starring Eve Hewson (The Knick, Behind Her Eyes, Robin Hood), Teen Choice nominee Himesh Patel (Yesterday, Tenet), and Golden Globe nominee Eva Green (Penny Dreadful, Casino Royale), the six-part series was hailed by TIME as “enchanting, enthralling” and The Guardian as “simply addictive TV… glorious escapism… a must-see full of intrigue, opium and political machinations.”
