The novel Shantaram is a modern classic of fiction. And now, a TV series adaptation of Shantaram premieres today on Apple TV+, starring Charlie Hunnam in the lead role …
Shantaram is set in the underworld of Bombay. Hunnam’s character is a man called Lin Ford, who escapes from prisoner hunting a fresh start in India. But his ties to crime quickly reel him back in. Ford must also confront a burgeoning romance with a mysterious woman called Karla.
The series has been in development for a long time, with production disrupted multiple times due to the pandemic.
The first three episodes of Shantaram arrive today, October 13. The remainder of the ten-episode first season debut weekly, every Friday. Season one covers about a third of the book. We don’t yet know if Shantaram will be renewed for future seasons to tell more of the story.
