Based on the 2019 film of the same name, The Gentlemen (2024) is an eight-part crime-drama series for Netflix. After the death of his father, Eddie Halstead inherits a large estate, unaware it is the front for a drug empire. With no experience in the criminal underworld, Eddie must take over the operation or lose everything.

Created by Guy Ritchie (The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015), Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows (2011)), the series stars Theo James (Divergent, Castlevania) as Eddie Halstead, Kaya Scodelario (Southcliffe (2013), True Love (2012)) as Susie Glass, Daniel Ings (I Hate Suzie, Lovesick) as Freddy Halstead and Joely Richardson (The Rook (2019), Nip/Tuck) as Lady Sabrina Halstead.

Filming took place at the Detling Diner in Maidstone, which doubled for Patty’s Service Station and at the Ashford Cattle Market.

As the county town of Kent and seat of local governance, Maidstone plays an important part in Kent’s history. The River Medway runs through Maidstone’s town centre, which is bustling with many shops, restaurants, bars, churches and a museum. Recent productions to have filmed in Maidstone include This Time with Alan Partridge Season 2 (2021), Whitstable Pearl (2021-2022) and The Last Rite (2021).

With high-speed connections to London, Ashford is a busy market town with a bustling town centre that boasts two shopping malls, vibrant cafés and pubs and a partly pedestrianised high street. The Thompsons (2012) also filmed in Ashford.

The Gentlemen (2024) was released on Netflix on Thursday 7th March 2024.
