Daisy Jones and The Six is an upcoming rock and roll Prime Video series based on Taylor Jenkins Reid's bestselling novel (opens in new tab) of the same name.

The highly-anticipated adaptation will follow the book closely, which tells the story of a promising and carefree LA-based singer, Daisy Jones (Riley Keough) who joins the legendary 1970s rock band The Six.

The story focuses on the lives of each of the lead characters and highlights the messiness of the decade's celebrity culture as we see them grapple with fame, drugs, heartbreak and loss during a chaotic period in their lives and careers.

Here's everything we know about Daisy Jones and The Six...

Daisy Jones and The Six release date

The 12-episode series does not have an official release date yet, since filming was postponed for more than a year due to the pandemic.

In September 2021, they finally began filming the series and in June 2022, the production team (Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine) revealed that they had wrapped on filming, celebrating with a fun Instagram video from the set.

We're hoping Daisy Jones and The Six will arrive on Prime Video later this year, but we'll keep this guide updated as we hear more news.

What is Daisy Jones and The Six about?

The TV adaptation will stay true to the book as it follows gifted young artist, Daisy Jones who joins smash hit rock band The Six, to create a one-of-a-kind album. 

Daisy and The Six frontman Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin), have a complex relationship with fame and drugs, as well as trying to resist their growing and undeniable connection to each other.

The book is told in a clever documentary style, switching back and forward in time with the band members (in the present) giving first-person accounts of their perspectives on the story of the band's rise and fall. Band members Graham (Will Harrison), Eddie (Josh Whitehouse), Karen (Suki Waterhouse) and Warren (Sebastian Chacon) discuss their time in the band and reveal what happened away from the ever-present cameras.

The series is likely to follow the same documentary-style format and will also feature lyrics from the book.

Who is in the cast of Daisy Jones and The Six?

Riley Keough, the granddaughter of the "King of Rock and Roll" himself, Elvis Presley, will be joining a star-studded cast playing the role of Daisy Jones —joint lead.
