There is so much great TV to look forward to at the moment and although we can’t wait to get stuck into the new season of Bridgerton tonight, another show we can’t wait for has just released it’s first trailer.

The series adaptation of Irish author, Cecilia Ahern’s book ‘Roar’ will hit our screens in the middle of April, and the trailer is finally here for us to watch. Sharing it to her Instagram today Cecilia said; “Turn the volume UP & Feast your eyes on this magnificent ROAR Trailer. Coming to @appletvplus on April 15th.”

“I’m so proud of this series and so grateful to all the creative geniuses involved in bringing my women to life. Strong, brave, fierce, witty, surreal, tender, and sometimes all in one episode. I hope you all love it and #ROAR with me!”

The series is bases off Cecilia’s book of the same name which is an anthology of 30 short stories, which she has described as a “fiercely feminist story collection” and was released back in 2018. It is produced by the people behind Glow and Orange is the New Black, and will be spread out over eight episodes at thirty minutes each and is described by creators as ”A story for every woman. A story for every moment.”

It was announced last year that A-lister Nicole Kidman is on board for the series, as well as Cynthia Erivo, Merritt Wever and Alison Brie. Kidman’s production company, Blossom Films, is also involved in the show’s production.

Of course we are already familiar with Cecelia’s work making the transition from page to screen. Her book Where Rainbow’s End, was adapted into a film called Love, Rosie.

Perhaps more famously, her book P.S I Love You also made it to the big screen back in 2007.

The show is set to stream on Apple TV from the 15th of April this year.
