'The English' on Amazon Prime Video: What day and time will the western drama release? And all you need to know
After a huge wait of 16 years, Emily Blunt is returning to the small screens with the upcoming western drama series ‘The English’. Blunt made her acting debut with a Television film titled ‘Bouda’ and her last major role on Television came in 2006 with ‘Gideon’s Daughter’. Since then, the British actor has been a force to be reckoned with in the film industry and has given several award-worthy performances.
As far as the series is concerned, the Amazon series primarily focuses on the life of an Englishwoman named Cornelia Locke (Blunt) who arrives in the west in 1890 and is looking for revenge on a man who she sees as responsible for the death of her son. In her journey, she meets an ex-cavalry scout and member of the Pawnee Nation who helps her in finding that man. However, things get really intense as they navigate through the violent landscapes built on dreams and blood.

What is the plot of ‘The English’?
The official synopsis reads, “The series takes the core themes of identity and revenge to tell a uniquely compelling parable on race, power, and love. An aristocratic Englishwoman, Lady Cornelia Locke (Emily Blunt), and a Pawnee ex-cavalry scout, Eli Whipp (Chaske Spencer), come together in 1890 middle America to cross a violent landscape built on dreams and blood. Both of them have a clear sense of their destiny, but neither is aware that it is rooted in a shared past. They must face increasingly terrifying obstacles that will test them to their limits, physically and psychologically. But as each obstacle is overcome, it draws them closer to their ultimate destination—the new town of Hoxem, Wyoming. It is here, after an investigation by the local sheriff Robert Marshall (Stephen Rea) and young widow Martha Myers (Valerie Pachner) into a series of bizarre and macabre unsolved murders, that the full extent of their intertwined history will be truly understood, and they will come face-to-face with the future they must live.”
