Everyone has been going crazy over the past pandemic, as we have had time to binge-watch many things. A particular genre that has gained immense popularity has been political dramas, which take place in professional workspaces. As mentioned above, Political Dramas seem to be all the rage these days. Netflix is cashing it by bringing more such content on its platform. If you are a fan of shows such as Homeland, The Crown, and the West Wing, then The Diplomat is something that is going to be right up your alley.
While there haven’t been any announcements about the cast yet, what we do know for sure is that the show will revolve around political themes. Expect a lot of tension in the office and a lot of policymaking. It is indeed fun to watch these people go through a stressful situation and have them try to overtake one another episode after episode.
The Diplomat will be helmed by Deborah Cahn, who has been a part of The Homeland, Gray’s Anatomy and Fosse/Verdon team. She has an eye for political thrillers, so seeing how she fares on her first individual project will be interesting.
The Diplomat Release Date
It is said that the show will begin filming in March 2022. It is going to be shot in London, England. While the cats have been kept under wraps for now, we are sure that the team will make some new updates pretty soon.
If they can shoot the show without hassle or interruptions, such as the pandemic, we can expect it to be released on Netflix by the latter half of 2022. If that doesn’t happen, we can expect to see the show on the streaming platform by March 2023.
While new shows are popping up on platforms every other day, what makes us anticipate the release of The Diplomat is how it has a competent team behind it. If Netflix backs you, it means there is something big and unique going on.
Stay tuned for more updates which are bound to come in a week or two. Until then, watch the Homeland to get a taste of what The Diplomat will be about.
The Diplomat Plot
All we know is that The Diplomat will be handling tropes and themes such as bureaucracy, political tension, workplace drama, national security, navigating through tense allies and finding out who wins in the end and emerges victorious out of the murk.
The lead will be a woman who is a US Ambassador in the UK. She has to handle the high strung tension whilst executing policies that she is supposed to. Her career is thriving, which has caused anxiety and rife in her marriage. All of it sounds like a recipe for disaster. How will she balance work and personal life, and will she be able to win it all?
It is nice to know that a woman will be the central character in such a story. Limelight on women-centric shows, especially in solemn atmospheres, is essential in today’s world.
There is no more information about the remaining cast and characters. It is believed that Netflix and the production team will announce something solid by the end of February 2022.
