PBS is showing the BBC adaptation of ‘Little Women’ again

The BBC’s Little Women is being repeated in the US next month.

Following the success of the recent Little Women movie at the Oscars, the BBC’s three-part adaptation will be shown again in its entirety on Sunday 22nd March on PBS Masterpiece from 8pm ET.

American author Louisa May Alcott’s classic 1868 novel was adapted for television by Call the Midwife creator Heidi Thomas in 2017.

From the makers of Wolf Hall and the executive producer of Downton Abbey, the three-part mini-series first aired in the US in May 2018.

Watch the original trailer:


The BBC’s Little Women featured an all-star cast, including Emily Watson (The Theory of Everything) as Marmee, Dame Angela Lansbury (Murder She Wrote) as Aunt March, Michael Gambon (Harry Potter) as their neighbour Mr. Laurence and Jonah Hauer-King as Laurie Laurence, alongside Maya Hawke, Willa Fitzgerald, Annes Elwy and Kathryn Newton as the iconic March sisters.

The official synopsis reads: “Loved by generations of women worldwide, Little Women is a truly universal coming of age story. Set against the backdrop of the Civil War, the story follows sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March on their journey from childhood to adulthood.

“With the help of their mother, Marmee, and while their father is away at war, the girls navigate what it means to be a young woman: from sibling rivalry and first love, to loss and marriage.”

Little Women is available on DVD on Amazon.
