We are excited to announce that Season 3 of Hulu’s Harlots will premiere on Wednesday, July 10th. Alfie Allen and Ash Hunter join the cast. Please see the below bullets for details.
· Harlots season 3 will premiere on Wednesday, July 10, 2019 (weekly release) only on Hulu!
· Joining the cast this season as new foes for the women of Soho are Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones, The Predator) and Ash Hunter (Hamilton West End, The Secret Agent) as the Pincher brothers.
· Isaac Pincher (Allen) is driven by his ambitions to achieve wealth and power. Compared to his more quiet and level-headed brother, Hal, he’s the front-man. Back in London after fighting in the Seven Years War, Isaac wants to take over London. The brothers lease a tavern together, the Saracen’s Head, which serves as a front for their ever-growing pimping business.
· Hal Pincher (Hunter) is as ambitious but less impulsive, than his mercurial brother Isaac. Hal’s good looks and charm lure women in, but in the past he’s been cautious, never quite letting them in. Hal enters into a relationship with Emily Lacey (Holli Dempsey) and they share an ambition to achieve something with their lives.
· Set against the backdrop of 18th century Georgian London, Harlots continues to follow the fortunes of the Wells family. Margaret (Samantha Morton) has been sent to America in chains and Lydia Quigley (Lesley Manville) is vanquished and in Bedlam. It seems that the Wells girls can finally free themselves of their mother’s feud, helped by allies such as Lady Fitz (Liv Tyler). But Charlotte Wells (Jessica Brown-Findlay) soon learns that running a lucrative brothel brings enemies as well as friends, including new pimp in town Isaac Pincher (Alfie Allen). Meanwhile Lydia still finds a way to bite, even in her darkest hour. Inspired by the stories of real women, Harlots is a powerful family drama as explored from the female perspective.
· The series stars Academy Award nominees Samantha Morton and Lesley Manville, Jessica Brown-Findlay and Liv Tyler.
· Harlots is entirely written, directed and produced by women: Co-creators Moira Buffini and Alison Newman also serve as Executive Producers alongside Alison Owen, Debra Hayward and Alison Carpenter.
