The new limited series The Regime, starring Academy Award-winner Kate Winslet, has officially arrived here in Australia.

This is not the first time the actress has headlined an HBO series, having starred in Mare of Easttown as Detective Mare Sheehan, a role for which she won an Emmy in 2021.

In addition to Winslet, the all-star cast of The Regime includes Matthias Schoenaerts, Guillaume Gallienne, Andrea Riseborough, Martha Plimpton and Hugh Grant.

What is HBO Max’s The Regime about?

As per the official logline, The Regime “tells the story of one year within the walls of the palace of a modern European regime as it begins to unravel”.

While details have been kept scarce up until the release, in the trailer we see a satirical tone framed around a sit down between Kate Winslet and Martha Plimpton’s characters.

And, considering that the brains behind the hit show Succession are involved in the series, it comes as no surprise that dry humour is at the core of The Regime.

Executive producers are Will Tracy (Succession, The Menu), who also serves as showrunner and writer, Frank Rich (Succession), Tracey Seward (The Queen), Kate Winslet, Stephen Frears (Dangerous Liaisons) and Jessica Hobbs (The Crown).
