Hollywood usually saves its most epic feature films for holiday season releases, and with COVID-19 still keeping many home, it made sense that Netflix would release this period drama on the masses. We’re not sure anyone expected the series that made Regé-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor some of the freshest faces in Hollywood. Also, it’s not often that period pieces get this much love; it’s proof that going outside of the box can net a win, as long as the story is worth the time viewers are investing. Things got so bad that when it was revealed that Page would not be returning for Season 2, viewers were outraged. There’s not much you can do when you follow a story that’s already laid out, but you try telling the timeline that.
