We've only just recovered from Bridgerton season 2 and are nowhere near over Sex/Life but already we're having to prepare for yet another steamy Netflix watch. The streamer is adapting Lady Chatterley's Lover, the dramatic novel by D. H. Lawrence which came out back in the 1920s, and follows a noble woman's affair with the gamekeeper on her husband's estate.
And if that wasn't already doing it for you, The Crown's Emma Corrin has been cast in the lead role of Lady Chatterley, alongside none other than Jack O'Connell from Skins. Here's everything we know about the project.
Do we have a trailer for Lady Chatterley's Lover?
While there's no trailer to speak of just yet, we do have some first look pictures of the cast in action, and our Bridgerton loving hearts cannot take the steamy period drama action! "Here's your first look at LADY CHATTERLEY'S LOVER starring Emma Corrin and Jack O’Connell," the tweet revealed, alongside a release date (more about that later.)

What is Lady Chatterley's Lover going to be about?
The original novel of the same name published in 1928 (although, it wasn't published in the UK until 1960 - saucy!) follows Lady Chatterley, an upper class woman and the wife of Baronet Sir Clifford Chatterley, who falls out of love with her husband and begins a petticoat ruffling affair with the gamekeeper of their large English estate, Oliver Mellors.
Obviously, the story is pure drama and features plenty of steamy trysts, along with asking some important (and pretty forward thinking for the time) questions about class dynamics.
Who has been cast in Lady Chatterley's Lover?
The Crown's Emma Corrin has been cast in the lead role, alongside The North Water star Jack O'Connell and Confession actor Matthew Duckett. What a trio.
When is Lady Chatterley's Lover being released?
"Here's your first look at LADY CHATTERLEY'S LOVER starring Emma Corrin and Jack O’Connell," a tweet from the official Netflix account read. "Coming to select cinemas in November and to Netflix on 2 December."
Mark it in your calendars, people!
