Subscribe To Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell Gets A Series Order From BBC America Updates

BBC America has found a niche in the cable programming market with its Supernatural Saturday lineup, and the network is rapidly developing programming to air during the network's weekend timeslots. The newest project is Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, a program about the Napoleonic Wars in England in the 19th century, during a time when magic is poised to return to the country. The new drama is about to begin pre-production to air on BBC America at a later date.

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell is actually a co-production with the BBC that is based on a novel by Susanna Clarke. Clarke’s novel is told in three parts and mostly follows the characters of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, who usher in a new generation filled with magic and magical theory. The novel was Clarke’s freshman shot at publishing and also became a bestseller for the author. If the idea for a program based on the book has piqued your interest, you can read more about it on the Jonathan Strange website.

It will actually be a long while before Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell airs as part of the Supernatural Saturday lineup on BBC America. The new series is not expected to be a reality until 2014. In the meantime, you can catch new episodes of the series Orphan Black on Saturday nights or hold out a little while longer to catch the network’s new show In The Flesh or Being Human’s Season 5 premiere. Filming for Jonathan Strange will take place in the UK and Canada, and we’ll keep you posted as the program moves forward and begins signing on cast members.
