STARZ Original Limited Series Howards End premieres in April 2018–get a sneak peek with the new trailer and images!
We were so thrilled when we learned this summer that our faves Hayley Atwell and Matthew Macfadyen would be staring in STARZ Original Limited Series Howards End (adapted from the E.M. Forster novel).
Howards End is the story of two independent and unconventional sisters seeking love and meaning as they navigate an ever-changing world. Margaret (Hayley Atwell) and Helen Schlegel (Philippa Coulthard) are intelligent and idealistic young women living together with their hypochondriac younger brother Tibby (Alex Lawther) in Edwardian London. Since the death of their parents and despite their interfering Aunt Juley’s (Tracey Ullman) best intentions, the sisters lead independent and slightly unorthodox lives.
After meeting the wealthy and conservative Wilcox family on holiday, Margaret forms a friendship with the older and more traditional Ruth Wilcox (Julia Ormond). When Ruth unexpectedly dies, Margaret finds herself increasingly drawn to the newly widowed Henry Wilcox (Matthew Macfadyen), a self-made businessman who inherits his late wife’s beloved country home Howards End. Meanwhile, the passionate and capricious Helen takes up the cause of Leonard Bast (Joseph Quinn), a young bank clerk who is struggling to make ends meet, trapped by his promise to marry his alluring but vulnerable lover Jacky (Rosalind Eleazar).
In the first official trailer, we meet the quirky Schlegel sisters and watch them experience family drama and romance:
Howards End has four hour-long episodes and our friends across the pond have already gotten a chance to watch on BBC One. We in the U.S. have to wait a little bit longer to April 2018, but it’ll be worth it! Plus, thanks to STARZ, we have five images from the series to share below!
