Fans calling for return of character after first look of Guy Ritchie's The Gentlemen series

Fans calling for return of character after first look of Guy Ritchie's The Gentlemen series

The spin-off series is coming to Netflix

Although Guy Ritchie's new The Gentlemen series is gaining momentum on social media, some fans have been questioning whether the return of their favourite character will be on the cards.

The Netflix show will be a spin-off from the 2019 film of the same name, which starred the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell and Hugh Grant.

But as far as we are aware, the upcoming show looks to have a totally different cast to the movie, while it expands on the bizarre crime world.

The streaming service has shared new snaps from The Gentlemen, with a special feature from Ritchie's long-term collaborator Vinnie Jones.

Theo James stars as the lead and is joined by Kaya Scodelario, Daniel Ings, Joely Richardson, Giancarlo Esposito, Chanel Cresswell, Michael Vu, Max Beesley, Jasmine Blackborow, Harry Goodwins, Dar Salim, Pearce Quigley, Ruby Sear and Peter Serafinowicz.

Speaking about his new series, Ritchie said: "The world of The Gentlemen is a little bit of me. I’m thrilled that with Netflix, Miramax and Moonage we have this opportunity to inhabit it once again.

"We’re looking forward to bringing fans back into that world, introducing new characters and their stories and I am excited to be doing it with this extremely talented cast."

Amid the excitement online, it seems some fans are concerned that their favourite character, Charlie Hunnam, won't be appearing in the new spin-off.

Hunnam starred as Raymond Smith in the 2019 movie, who is the right-hand man of Mickey Pearson (McConaughey), one of the most powerful drug lords in Europe.

"You can't have The Gentlemen without Charlie Hunnam and McConaughey," one person tweeted.

"Need Charlie Hunnam," a second added.

"WE NEED CHARLIE HUNNAM BACK," another wrote.

"Will Charlie Hunnam be in it? Mathew McConaughey, Hugh Grant?" someone else said.

"At least a cameo a couple of scenes or something..."

Tudum by Netflix said of the new series: "We meet Eddie Horniman as he inherits his father’s sizeable estate… only to discover it’s part of a weed empire. Moreover, a host of unsavoury elements of Britain’s criminal underworld want a piece of the operation. Determined to extricate his family from their clutches, Eddie tries to play the gangsters at their own game. However, as he gets sucked into the world of criminality, he begins to find a taste for it."

After seeing the first-look snaps, one fan commented: "Loved the movie... I'm gonna watch this!"

Another put: "Amazing film, high hopes for this."

A third person also agreed: "I have never been so excited."

All eight episodes of The Gentlemen are set to premiere on Netflix in 2024.
