Prime Video Confirms Release Date for “EXPATS” Drama Series Starring Nicole Kidman, Sarayu Blue and Ji-young Yoo

Prime Video has announced that “Expats,” the six-part limited series directed by Lulu Wang (The Farewell, Posthumous) and based on Janice Y. K. Lee’s international bestselling novel “The Expatriates,” will premiere on 26 January 2024.

“Expats” stars Academy Award- and Emmy Award-winning actress Nicole Kidman (“Big Little Lies,” “The Undoing”), Sarayu Blue (“Never Have I Ever,” Blockers), Ji-young Yoo (The Sky Is Everywhere, Smoking Tigers), Brian Tee (“Chicago Med,” Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows) and Jack Huston (“House of Gucci,” “Fargo”). Kidman and Lulu Wang also executive produce the series. The penultimate feature-length episode of the series will receive its European premiere at the BFI London International Film Festival on 9 October.

Set against the vibrant and tumultuous tapestry of 2014 Hong Kong, “Expats” focuses on three American women – Margaret (Kidman), Hilary (Blue) and Mercy (Yoo) – whose lives converge after a sudden family tragedy. The series interrogates privilege and explores what happens when the line between victimhood and culpability becomes blurred.

Lulu Wang serves as a creator, director, and writer for Expats. Wang also executive produces the series with Daniele Melia for Local Time. Nicole Kidman serves as an executive producer for the series with Per Saari for Blossom Films (Rabbit HoleNine Perfect Strangers), along with Australian screenwriter Alice Bell (The Beautiful LieThe Slap), who was the first writer onboarded to the series. Theresa Park for Per Capita Productions (After YangBones and All) and Stan Wlodkowski (The Old Guard) also serve as executive producers. Vera Miao (Two Sentence Horror Stories), Gursimran Sandhu (Game of Thrones), and author Janice Y. K. Lee served as writers on Expats, with Bell and Wang.

To celebrate the announcement Prime Video also released the official artwork below.
