Having filmed in Scotland, One Day is a new Netflix limited series set to be released on February 8. Based on the David Nicholls’ novel of the same name, and following in the footsteps of the 2011 film, the series will follow Dexter and Emma, a young couple who meet at Edinburgh University where parts of the show were filmed.
Set in real time on a Glasgow to London sleeper train, Nightsleeper is an upcoming BBC series which follows a government agency desperately attempting to save the lives of passengers onboard. With an all-star cast including Alex Ferns, James Cosmo and Barbie actress Sharon Rooney the thriller was shot on location in Glasgow.
Outlander star Richard Rankin will be the latest Scottish actor to step into the iconic role of Inspector John Rebus. The character, created by Edinburgh author Ian Rankin, has been the star of several adaptations with the latest set to be released on streaming service Viaplay in 2024. No exact release date has been revealed yet, but the series was filmed across Scotland so expect to see familiar places – as well as faces – popping up.
Shot on location in the Orkney Islands, Saoirse Ronan stars in recovery drama The Outrun. Based on Scottish journalist Amy Liptrot’s 2016 memoir of the same name, the film follows Ronan as Rona, a woman fresh out of rehab who returns home to the Orkney Islands after more than a decade away. Having premiered at the 2024 Sundance FIlm Festival, it is expected to be released later this year.

Set to be released in Spring 2024, Mary & George is a historical miniseries based on the true story of Mary Villiers, who moulded her son, George, to seduce King James I and become his all-powerful lover.
