Here’s what The Gentlemen series is about

After the thrilling announcement in 2022 that The Gentlemen series was officially in the works at Netflix, anticipation for the project has been steadily building! The series follows Eddie Horniman, who unexpectedly inherits his father, Bobby Glass' (Ray Winstone), sprawling estate and the title of Duke of Halstead, only to unravel a secret cannabis empire intertwined with the family legacy.

As Eddie grapples to free his family from the clutches of Britain’s criminal underbelly, he finds himself thrust into the intricate web of illicit dealings.

"THE GENTLEMEN sees Eddie Horniman unexpectedly inherit his father’s sizeable country estate – only to discover it’s part of a cannabis empire. Moreover, a host of unsavoury characters from 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."
