The Regime - S : Kate Winslet (HBO ) - Limited Series - Debuts 3/3/24

Kate Winslet, Matthias Schoenaerts Are a Leader and Her Loyal Soldier in ‘The Regime’ Trailer

Set to debut March 3, the HBO limited series from 'The Menu' and 'Succession' writer Will Tracy also stars Guillaume Gallienne, Andrea Riseborough, Martha Plimpton and Hugh Grant.


Matthias Schoenaerts’ “nobody” soldier is the only person Kate Winslet‘s European leader can trust as she loses her grip on power in the first trailer for The Regime.

From the mind of The Menu and Succession writer Will Tracy, the new Max limited series “tells the story of one year within the walls of the palace of a modern European regime as it begins to unravel.” But its nearly two-minute trailer promises as much comedy as political drama — and possible tragedy — as it traces how Winslet’s chancellor selects an attack dog to insulate herself from criticism, subterfuge and, ultimately, reality.



The series, which was previously titled The Palace, was teased back in April, but with a focus on the interactions between Winslet’s chancellor and Martha Plimpton’s American U.S. emissary, who diplomatically demands Winslet’s leader demonstrates her “credibility” as a leader to the Western nation. The latest teaser certainly nods to that political tension, but largely focuses in on the relationship between the soldier plucked from obscurity by the Chancellor, and positioned as her most trusted confidant — keeping her friends, enemies and even husband at bay.

Guillaume Gallienne, Andrea Riseborough and Hugh Grant round out the cast of the six-episode series, which will also stream on Max. Tracy, serves as showrunner and writer, in addition to executive producing alongside Winslet, Frank Rich, Tracey Seaward, Stephen Frears and Jessica Hobbs. The writing team also includes Seth Reiss, Sarah DeLappe, Gary Shteyngart and Jen Spyra.

The Regime will debut on HBO March 3.

Cool, looks fun, I'm always up for another HBO Limited Series starring Kate Winslet. Her last two were outstanding.

I'll pretty much watch anything with Kate Winslet. This one looks "different" than most of her previous TV work. I'll give it a shot.

I love Kate but I don't see myself getting HBOMax for this. Barely finsihed the trailer. I guess I was not expecting smarmy comedy from her.

High praise from former Ringer writer, now at Variety :

But Alan didn't like it.

I don’t know what to make of this, it’s just weird.

There's not anybody to care about in this show, at least not yet. And it's not as witty or entertaining as Succession, for example, where it doesn't matter whether you like anyone. And Kate Winslet is all over the place. But Hugh Grant is yet to come, so I'll give it some time.

This was pretty bad. None of the characters were likeable.

Winslet looked great, but I don’t why she gave the character a lisp or speech impediment when talking publicly.

The story with Agnes and the kid was a waste of time.

Finished this today. I thought it was very good. Dark comedy - not everyone's cup of tea. Kate was fantastic in this role.

I do agree with Mr. X re: Agnes and the kid.
