Series Info

This three-part miniseries based on Andrea Levy's award-winning novel about the end of slavery in Jamaica follows July (Tamara Lawrance, King Charles III), an indomitable, young slave who works on a sugarcane plantation with her detestable mistress, Caroline Mortimer (Hayley Atwell, The Avengers). Their lives change with the arrival of the charming new overseer, Robert Goodwin (Jack Lowden, Dunkirk) who sets out to improve the plantation for both the slaves and the mistress.

Critics Consensus: The Long Song refreshingly grounds its historical drama from the perspective of the oppressed, unblinkingly depicting the horror of slavery while simultaneously exploring the compelling inner worlds of those held captive by it.
