Renegade Nell: Release Date, Cast, Plot, and Everything You Need to Know

Joined by Joely Richardson, Adrian Lester, and Nick Mohammed (from Ted Lasso), Renegade Nell is an action-packed adventure series on Disney Plus that stars Louisa Harland (The Derry Girls).

Louisa plays the role of Nell, a young lady who is falsely accused of murder. As the story progresses, we accompany Nell on her run, where she becomes the most notorious highwaywoman in 18th-century England with the support of a motley band.

This is Sally Wainwright’s first British original series for Disney Plus; she is a BAFTA-winning writer and executive producer of Gentleman Jack and Happy Valley. The show was initially titled The Ballad of Renegade Nell.

Renegade Nell Release Date

Even though Disney Plus hasn’t confirmed it yet, we can probably expect to see Renegade Nell debut in 2024. A shot from the first day on set (above) confirms that shooting for the fantasy drama started in July 2022, so it is likely now in post-production.

Renegade Nell Plot

Nell, the protagonist of Renegade Nell, is a courageous and witty young lady. But before she knows it, she’s being tried for a murder that she didn’t carry out. She sets out on the road with her younger sisters Roxy and George, portrayed by newcomers Bo Bragason and Florence Keen, along with a courageous little ghost named Billy Blind, played by Nick Mohammed, and becomes a renowned highwaywoman since she has nothing else to rely on.

The crew must band together to face the cunning Earl of Poynton, who is portrayed by Adrian Lester of Trigger Point and who is Nell’s dangerous enemy. In little time at all, Nell comes to terms with the fact that she has been led astray by no accident and that she must somehow get involved in the power conflicts raging on the battlefields of Europe.
