‘Wolf Hall: The Mirror and the Light’: Masterpiece Drops New Photos


Masterpiece PBS and the BBC have released first look photos from Wolf Hall: The Mirror and the Light, an adaptation of the final novel in Hilary Mantel’s award-winning trilogy.

Mark Rylance is reprising his role as Thomas Cromwell, while Damian Lewis is back as King Henry VIII. Also returning are Jonathan Pryce as Cardinal Wolsey, Kate Phillips as Henry VIII’s third wife Jane Seymour and Lilit Lesser as Princess Mary, the daughter of Henry and his first wife Catherine of Aragon.

The drama also stars Harry Melling as Thomas Wriothesley, Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Rafe Sadler, Timothy Spall as the Duke of Norfolk, Alex Jennings as Stephen Gardiner and Charlie Rowe as Gregory Cromwell.

Wolf Hall: The Mirror and the Light will trace the final four years of Cromwell’s life, completing his journey from self-made man to the most feared, influential figure of his time.

Mantel died in 2022 at aged 70 and at that point director Peter Kosminsky said The Mirror and the Light would proceed as a “memorial” to the celebrated British author. The previous two books in the trilogy, Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies, were adapted by Masterpiece and the BBC into one 2015 series.

Wolf Hall: The Mirror and the Light will be directed by Kosminsky (The Undeclared War, The State), adapted for television by Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Frank), and produced by Playground (All Creatures Great and Small, The Undeclared War) and Company Pictures (Van Der Valk, Blood).

Wolf Hall: The Mirror and the Light will broadcast on Masterpiece on PBS and will be available to stream on the PBS App, the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel and PBS.org.

A premiere date will be announced at a later date.
