The gods have smiled upon us and renewed Harlots for another season!
Set against the backdrop of 18th century Georgian London, Harlots is a powerful family drama offering a brand-new take on the city’s most valuable commercial activity – sex. Based on the stories of real women, the series follows Margaret Wells and her daughters as she struggles to reconcile her roles as mother and brothel owner. When her business comes under attack from Lydia Quigley, a rival madam with a ruthless streak, Margaret will fight back, even if it means putting her family at risk.
In case you haven't seen it yet, it's written, directed and produced by women, starring a diverse female cast, without making the sex work titillating or exploitative. There's not even that much nudity, I think I've seen more male butts than boobs.
