Uh… ladies? We just stumbled upon a brand-new version of Jamie Dornan. If you’re still a mess over his Fifty Shades of Grey performance, you should jump on another great Dornan-led project, New Worlds.
New Worlds made its American debut on Acorn TV on Monday night and we’re already hooked. It’s easy to draw comparisons between New Worlds and Starz’s Outlander and you wouldn’t be far off base. Wrought with danger and violence in both America and England during the English Civil War, New Worlds offers up the sexy accents of shows like Outlander and Game of Thrones and the grittiness of History’s Vikings. Most importantly, though? It features none other than Fifty Shades of Grey‘s uber-sexy Jamie Dornan, who starred as the kinky-as-hell Christian Grey.
Here’s Acorn TV’s official series description, which told us all we needed to know to tune in for the premiere: “Set in the turbulent aftermath of the English Civil War, King Charles II’s tyrannical rule has led to a climate of violence and fear in England and the American colonies. Amid the chaos, four young, courageous idealists fall in love as they commit to forging a fairer future with blood, passion and urgency. But to achieve this, they must be prepared to pay the ultimate price.”
The show’s first episode streamed on Monday and is available for viewing now. Above, though, you can find a SheKnows exclusive clip from the second episode. Who’s the young lass Dornan’s character first pushes away and then asks to come along? And how will the pair come to fare by the end of the season? New episodes of New Worlds premiere every Monday on Acorn TV (available on iTunes, Roku and Samsung Smart TVs)… watch and find out.
