Happy New Year everybody. As we are patiently waiting for the release of Sky’s “Django”, international fans can now set their calendars. The 10-part series, starring Matthias Schoenaerts and Noomi Rapace, will be released on the German Sky Q and the streaming service WOW, starting February 17 with double episodes and on Sky Atlantic on February 21, 2023. I couldn’t find a press release for Sky in the United Kingdom, but I’m pretty sure it will be released in other international territories around the same time. Here’s the official synopsis:

Loosely based on Sergio Corbucci’s cult film Django, the series is the story of a gunman in search of the truth about the massacre of his family; he will find himself fighting for an even bigger cause. Texas, late 1800s: Django is a jaded cowboy in search of the daughter he thought he’d lost. In following her trail, he comes upon New Babylon, a town at the bottom of a crater, where all outcasts are welcome and where everyone is equal and free. Here, Django discovers that his 20-year-old daughter Sarah is alive and set to marry John Ellis, the founder of New Babylon. Sarah – who blames her father for the death of their family, massacred many years earlier while he was at war – wants Django to leave. But he refuses to give up and does everything in his power to get a second chance with her, becoming a valuable ally for Ellis, while they must defend New Babylon against the powerful Lady of Elmdale, Elizabeth Thurman, launched on a personal quest to get rid of this community of thieves and sinners. Unbeknownst to them, all of our main characters are linked by a web of secrets and a dark past bound to resurface.
