The long awaited Downton Abbey spin off Golden age finally airs on TV – here’s what time it comes out and how fans can watch the show. Golden ageThe production of was fraught with hurdles, taking almost a decade in the process. Operated by NBC through Universal Television, Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes originally conceived the spin-off prequel in 2012. However, it wasn’t until 2018 that the show’s production was confirmed. Originally, Golden age was supposed to be released in 2019, but soon after the announcement, the historical drama finally found itself a new home.

Set during the eponymous period of “huge economic change” in the USA, Golden age follows the wealth and high society pageantry of the 1880s. Featuring an ensemble cast, the show includes Christine Baranski (The good fight), Cynthia Nixon(And just like that), Denée Benton (hamilton), Carrie Coon (Ghostbusters: Afterlife), and Louisa Jacobson.
After a tender procedure, Golden age moved to HBO, where his opulence and ambition will be better served. The nine-episode series is set to air on January 24, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. PT, 9:00 p.m. ET, and 2:00 a.m. GMT. Here’s how excited fans can watch Golden age, just over two years after the Downton Abbey movie release.
