We discuss the Apple TV Plus series Shantaram, including the release date, time, plot synopsis, cast, and trailer, and how to watch online.

Apple TV Plus is getting ready to release a brand-new, 12-episode series starring Charlie Hunnam titled Shantaram. The series is based on the best-selling novel by Gregory David Roberts of the same name. If you are intrigued by the new series and want to learn more about it, you are in the right place! Here’s everything we know so far.

Apple TV+ series Shantaram plot synopsis

Here is the official plot synopsis:

“Based on the internationally best-selling novel by Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram follows a fugitive named Lin Ford (Charlie Hunnam) looking to get lost in vibrant and chaotic 1980s Bombay. Alone in an unfamiliar city, Lin struggles to avoid the trouble he’s running from in this new place. After falling for an enigmatic and intriguing woman named Karla, Lin must choose between freedom or love and the complications that come with it.”

Our opinion of the premise

This looks like something I would enjoy very much, so I am definitely adding it to my calendar. Charlie Hunnam is definitely an interesting name to keep track of, after once being considered the next big Hollywood star (a title he no longer holds, given the way audiences have reacted to his movies). He is a very competent actor, and I’m excited to see him in a scaled-down production where he can sink his teeth into a character. Of course, this is not his first TV experience, as he emerged from the critically acclaimed Sons of Anarchy.

Shantaram release date

The series will be released globally on Apple TV Plus on Friday, October 14th, at 12 am PT. The streaming service will release 3 episodes on its premiere, and then it will be one episode a week.
