It’s almost time to meet a new legend. Disney+ recently revealed Renegade Nell will officially premiere all episodes in March.

The eight-part original series comes from BAFTA-award-winning writer Sally Wainwright (Happy Valley) with lead director Ben Taylor (Sex Education). The show follows Nell Jackson, a quick-witted and courageous young woman, finds herself framed for murder and unexpectedly becomes the most notorious outlaw in 18th-century England. But when a magical spirit called Billy Blind appears, Nell realizes her destiny is bigger than she ever imagined.

Louisa Harland will star as the series’ lead character Nell. (Derry Girls fans will recognize Harland as the eccentric Orla.) The cast also includes Frank Dillane as “Charles Devereux”, Alice Kremelberg as “Sofia Wilmot”, Ényì Okoronkwo as “Rasselas”, Jake Dunn as “Thomas Blancheford”, Bo Bragason as “Roxy Trotter”, Florence Keen as “George Trotter”, Nick Mohammed as “Billy Blind”, Joely Richardson as “Lady Eularia Moggerhangar”, Adrian Lester as “Robert Hennessey, Earl of Poynton”, Pip Torrens as “Lord Blancheford”, and Craig Parkinson as “Sam Trotter.”

Wainwright and Taylor executive produce the series, along with Faith Penhale, Will Johnston, Louise Mutter, and Johanna Devereaux. In addition to Taylor, Amanda Brotchie (Gentleman Jack) and MJ Delaney (Ted Lasso) also direct episodes.

Disney+ announced at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour that Renegade Nell would premiere on March 29. All eight episodes will release together on Disney+
