It’s time for another twist on the Cinderella story. Of sorts, anyway. Riches is heading to Prime Video in December, and here’s all you need to know.

We’ve all heard the story of Cinderella, and there have been many retellings of that story. Riches is a take on the tale, but it adds a little more depth and brings a slightly different “stepsister” element to it. They’re not stepsisters in this one. They’re half sisters.

The series will arrive on Prime Video before the year it out. You won’t want to miss it, and here’s all you need to know, including the release date and the cast involved.

Riches release date

The series will head to Prime Video on Friday, Dec. 2. This is not a global release, though. It will head to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the Nordics, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the U.S. It will air on ITVX in the UK.

This is a binge-watch. There will be six episodes to tell the story.

Riches cast

Take a look at the cast for the series:

  • Deborah Ayorinde as Nina Richards
  • Hugh Quarshie as Stephen Richards

Riches trailer

Take a look at the trailer for the series. You’ll certainly see the Cinderella elements to the story, but you’ll also see how this story is going to differ. There’s no woman looking for her Prince Charming in this series.

Riches synopsis

When Stephen Richards suddenly dies, everything about his business and empire hang in the balance. He has two families, and the children from both sides want a piece of the pie. They will collide as they fight against each other for the money, the business, and more.

This is a series that will exploit the privileged and stylish. Who will prove worthy of the estate in the end?
