Expats Season 1 Episodes 1 & 2 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

Expats Season 1 Episodes 1 & 2

After Netflix’s banging success with Diplomat last year, Prime Video is coming up with its own diplomatic ringer. Expats is all set to make its debut on the streaming platform on the 26th of January 2024. The new show is created by Lulu Wang based on the 2016 novel The Expatriates by Janice Y. K. Lee. The series will mark Wang’s first venture after the highly acclaimed The Farewell (2019).  

Expats features a stellar star cast, led by Nicole Kidman, who will be gunning to replicate her brilliance from similar works like Special Ops and Bangkok Hilton. Jack Huston and Brian Tee are also attached to the roster. Expats promises more than just thrills and frills, given the intricate nature of the source novel. It will be interesting to see what parts of Lee’s works are brought to life and tied up in a cinematic narrative.
