Period drama. Bodice ripper. Whatever you want to call it, "Mary & George" is swiftly establishing itself as the new "Bridgerton".

Julianne Moore has made no secret of how much fun she had playing the ambitious Mary Villiers, Countess of Buckingham, who conjures up a plan to save herself and her family from poverty after her husband dies leaving them penniless.

Fortunately, she's blessed with a handsome son, George (Galitzine). Preferring men to women, a lucrative marriage certainly isn't on the cards for the easily manipulated youth. But, if anything, that only entrenches his mother's devilish plan even deeper, with eyes on the most powerful man in the land — King James I (played by Tony Curran).

Ready for your new streaming obsession? With staggered release dates in different corners of the globe, below we have all the details you need to watch "Mary & George" online from anywhere in the world.
