Ewan McGregor stars in the TV adaptation of Amor Towles’ novel A Gentleman In Moscow.

Led by showrunner Ben Vanstone, the show follows aristocrat Count Alexander Ilyich Rostov as he returns to Russia in the aftermath of the 1917 Bolshevik revolution, where he’s arrested and banished to a hotel attic by a Soviet tribunal.

Along with starring in the lead role, McGregor also serves as an executive producer on the series alongside Vanstone, Tom Harper and others.

Other cast members include Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Fehinti Balogun, Daniel Cerquieria, Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson, Johnny Harris, Leah Harvey and Josh Heffernan.

Will A Gentlemen In Moscow return for a season 2?

Probably not. The show is billed as a limited series, and while this doesn’t rule out a second season (as shown with Big Little Lies), it does suggest that the chances are low.

It’s also hard to imagine considering A Gentleman In Moscow covers all the events in Amor Towles’ original novel, so any second season would have to go beyond the source material. Again, this isn’t always a dealbreaker (13 Reasons Why) but it’s certainly an obstacle.


How many episodes are in the series?

The series spans eight episodes in total and is available on Paramount+. The finale was released on the streaming service on May 17.

McGregor will next star in director David Robert Mitchell’s (It Follows) sci-fi film Flowervale Street, alongside Anne Hathaway and Maisy Stella. The film is scheduled to be released on May 16, 2025.
