Also available to stream on Hulu, when will we be able to see Promised Land? What is the story about and who are the cast? Here is what we know so far about the upcoming Latino TV show.
Promised Land Season 1: Release Date
It has been officially announced that Promised Land will be released on Monday, January 24, 2022, on ABC. This means, in just several days, we will be able to see the story of Sandoval family and their drama.
Since it will be aired at 10 p.m., it can suggest that the show will contain adult materials. ABC also tries to use Promised Land as a bridge program, as The Good Doctor—another its successful TV series—is on its hiatus. That means, Promised Land can take its time to adjust without competing with other more established shows.
Promised Land was first ordered as a pilot for a family drama TV series in February 2021. And on August 11, 2021, it then has been given a series order.
Promised Land Season 1: What is It About?
Different to a show with the same name from the 90’s, Promised Land is a brand new family drama TV show that revolves around the rivalry of two families in a region of California, Sonoma Valley. The family is owning and operating a vineyard, as they and other rival family fight over wealth and power in their businesses.
The show will picture about rooted conflicts, the rivalry with sworn enemies between generations in both of the families. Since it will talk about the competition of power and wealth in California, we can assume that it will also address politics, money laundering, or land ownership around wine business.
We can know more of the storyline and the plot of Promised Land from its teaser. On January 13, 2022, ABC has released the official trailer on its YouTube channel.
