The first-look trailer for the sequel to the 2010 miniseries The Pillars of the Earth has arrived. See what you make of World Without End, coming soon to Reelz Channel.
Ken Follett’s global bestseller World Without End premieres as an eight-part, one-hour event series on Showcase, starring Cynthia Nixon, Miranda Richardson, Ben Chaplin, Peter Firth, Charlotte Riley, Megan Follows and Sarah Gadon, with director Michael Caton-Jones at the helm.
The epic series follows Caris, a visionary young woman struggling to rise above the suffering and oppression in order to lead her people out of the dark times. England is on the brink of devastating war with France that will last over a hundred years, and a terrible plague is spreading that will wipe out a third of Europe’s population before it is done. With her lover Merthin, Caris builds a community that stands up to The Crown and The Church. Together, they unearth a dangerous secret and must fight to save their town of Kingsbridge from ruin, ultimately ushering in a new era of freedom, innovation and enlightenment.

World Without End will also air this fall on Showcase in Canada (Tuesday, September 4 at 10 p.m. ET.) and Channel 4 in the UK.
