Apple TV has announced it will be airing female-driven anthology series, Roar, starring none other than Nicole Kidman! Having already starred (and executively produced) game-changing, women-led TV series such as Big Little Lies and The Undoing, it's safe to say we're expecting Nicole's latest project to be absolutely huge.

Here's everything you could possibly need to know about the upcoming series, including cast, release date and the trailer.

What will Roar be about?

Created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch (a.k.a the creators of GLOW), Roar is based on the book of the same name by Cecelia Ahern. The official synopsis describes the adaptation as a, "collection of eight half-hour genre-bending episodes, told from a uniquely female point of view."

Cecelia Ahern, who wrote, P.S. I Love You's book Roar is "a fiercely feminist story collection that illuminates, sometimes in fantastical ways, how women of all kinds navigate the world today." We love the sound of it.


Who will star in Roar?

Nicole Kidman, Cynthia Erivo (Harriet, Chewing Gum), Merritt Wever (Marriage Story, The Walking Dead) and Alison Brie (GLOW, Mad Men) have all been confirmed, with more to be announced. So far, so good.

Is there a trailer for Roar?

Not yet. We'll let you know as soon as there is.

When will Roar be released?

Having been in the works since 2018, we're hoping Roar is coming sooner, rather than later. However, the latest cast announcements only came in March earlier this year, which suggests we may have a little wait before production finishes.
