Charlie Hunnam gets back on a bike for a first look at the Apple TV+ series

Pour some gas in your hog and prepare to swoon like you did when Sons of Anarchy was on the air because the first look at Charlie Hunnam in the Apple TV+ series Shantaram is here. Based on the internationally best-selling novel by Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram is a hopeful cinematic love story coupled with a thrilling epic adventure that follows one man’s journey to redemption through a country that changes his life.

Apple TV+‘s official press release shows that Shantaram follows a fugitive named Lin Ford (Hunnam) looking to get lost in vibrant and chaotic 1980s Bombay. Alone in an unfamiliar city, Lin struggles to avoid the trouble he’s running from in this new place. After falling for an enigmatic and intriguing woman named Karla, Lin must choose between freedom or love and the complications that come with it.

Shantaram will hit Apple TV+ at high speed with a three-episode premiere on October 14, 2022. One new episode of the 12-episode series will debut every Friday through December 16, 2022, on Apple TV+.

Hunnam isn’t the only star looking to taste the spice of life in Shantaram. The series also features Shubham Saraf, Elektra Kilbey, Fayssal Bazzi, Luke Pasqualino, Antonia Desplat, Alyy Khan, Sujaya Dasgupta, Vincent Perez, David Field, Alexander Siddig, Gabrielle Scharnitzky, Elham Ehsas, Rachel Kamath, Matthew Joseph, and Shiv Palekar.

Co-created by series writer, executive producer, and showrunner Steve Lightfoot, Shantaram is directed by Bharat Nalluri, who also executive produces. Andrea Barron, Nicole Clemens, Steve Golin, Justin Kurzel, and Eric Warren Singer co-created the series with Lightfoot. The group also serves as executive producers.

Have you ever wanted to escape to parts unknown to search for another part of your soul? People say a change of scenery can do wonders. It’s even better if you find somebody to love. I hope Lin recognizes a good thing when he sees it.
