Years and Years Trailer Featuring Rory Kinnear and Emma Thompson

-

HBO has added limited drama series Years and Years to its June schedule! The six-part series will debut on Monday, June 14 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. You can watch the Years and Years trailer using the player below and let us know what you think in the comments.

As Britain is rocked by unstable political, economic and technological advances, the series follows the Lyons family as their complex lives converge on one crucial night in 2019. Then, over the next 15 years, the twists and turns of everyday life are explored as we find out if this ordinary family could ever change the world.

Two-time Oscar winner Emma Thompson (The Children Act, Late Night) stars in the family saga as Vivienne Rook, an outspoken celebrity turned political figure whose controversial opinions divide the nation. She’s a new breed of politician, an entertainer, a rebel, a trickster, and her rise to power leads us into an unknown future.

Bafta-nominated Rory Kinnear (Spectre, Peterloo) plays Stephen Lyons, a financial advisor and the family’s peacekeeper who is married to Celeste played by T’Nia Miller (Obey, Marcella), an ambitious and opinionated accountant.

Russell Tovey (The History Boys, Quantico) plays Daniel Lyons, a hard-working housing officer and Stephen’s brother. Their sister Edith, played by Jessica Hynes (Paddington 2, W1A), is radical, dangerous and calculating with a secret life. And completing the siblings is heavily pregnant Rosie, played by Ruth Madeley (Cold Feet, Don’t Take My Baby). Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax, The Mother) presides over the family as Muriel, imperial grandmother to the Lyons.

The series is a RED Production Company production, in co-production with HBO, BBC One and CANAL+. Years and Years was created, written and executive produced by Russell T Davies. The executive producers are Nicola Shindler and Michaela Fereday for RED Production Company and Lucy Richer for the BBC. The series producer is Karen Lewis, and director and executive producer is Simon Cellan Jones.
