We've only just recovered from Bridgerton and nowhere near over Sex/Life but already we're having to prepare for yet another steamy Netflix watch. The streamer has announced it will be adapting Lady Chatterley's Lover, the dramatic novel by D. H. Lawrence which came out back in the 1920s, and follows a noble woman's affair with the gamekeeper on her husband's estate. And if that wasn't already doing it for you, The Crown's Emma Corrin has been cast the lead role of Lady Chatterley. Here's everything we know about the project.
What is Lady Chatterley's Lover going to be about?
The original novel of the same name published in 1928 (although, it wasn't published in the UK until 1960 - saucy!) follows Lady Chatterley, an upper class woman and the wife of Baronet Sir Clifford Chatterley, who falls out of love with her husband and begins a petticoat ruffling affair with the gamekeeper of their large English estate, Oliver Mellors.
Obviously, the story is pure drama and features plenty of steamy trysts, along with asking some important (and pretty forward thinking for the time) questions about class dynamics.
Who has been cast in Lady Chatterley's Lover?
As we know, The Crown's Emma Corrin has been cast in the lead role, alongside The North Water star Jack O'Connell and Confession actor Matthew Duckett. What a trio.
When is Lady Chatterley's Lover being released?
We don't have a release date just yet, but what we do have are some incredible fan reactions to the news of this project, which'll more than do for now...
