‘Belgravia’ start date: When is ‘Downton’ writer’s new ITV drama on in UK?

ITV has finally announced when Belgravia begins in the UK.

The much-anticipated new period drama is based on Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes’ New York Times bestselling novel from 2016.

Set in London in the 1840s, the six-part mini-series boasts an amazing cast of British actors, including Tamsin Greig (Episodes), Philip Glenister (Life on Mars), Harriet Walter (Downton Abbey) and Tom Wilkinson (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel).

The first episode of Belgravia will air at 9pm on Sunday 15th March on ITV.

Belgravia will premiere in the US at 9pm on Sunday 12th April on EPIX and a new American trailer was released last month.

EPIX can be viewed through its new streaming service EPIX NOW on TV, on demand, online and across devices.

The official synopsis reads: “Belgravia is a story of secrets and scandals amongst the upper echelons of London society in the 19th Century.

“When the Trenchards accept an invitation to the now legendary ball hosted by the Duchess of Richmond on the fateful eve of the Battle of Waterloo, it sets in motion a series of events that will have consequences for decades to come as secrets unravel behind the porticoed doors of London’s grandest neighbourhood.”

The English Game, Julian Fellowes’s new Netflix drama, also premieres later this month.

Julian Fellowes’s Belgravia novel is available on Amazon.
