March marks the month when fans can finally see Daisy Jones and the Six episodes on screen.

What do you get when you mix an ethereal folk singer with an up-and-coming rock band in 1970's America? A smash hit called Daisy Jones and the Six, that's what. Or at least that's the premise of the new Amazon Prime series. The show sees Peaky Blinders star Sam Claflin pick up the guitar and channel his inner rockstar in a story that gives audiences heartbreak, fame, sex, drugs, and rock n roll.

Daisy Jones and the Six was co-executively produced by Reese Witherspoon and her company Hello Sunshine. Behind the recent book-to-screen adaptations of Where the Crawdad Sings and From Scratch, it's safe to say that many fans are excited to feast their eyes on the Prime show. Here's when Daisy Jones and the Six comes out and what you need to know about the story and all-star cast.

When is Daisy Jones and the Six coming out?

The first three episodes of Daisy Jones and the Six will be released on Amazon Prime on March 3, 2023 for both UK and US viewers. The series is being released in four stages, with the finale dropping March 24.

The Daisy Jones and the Six start date additionally coincides with the show's soundtrack release. Aurora is a full length album that features 24 songs performed by the band in the series. Vocals by Riley Keough, Sam Claflin, Suki Waterhouse, Will Harrison, Josh Whitehouse and Sebastian Chacon - who make up Daisy Jones and the Six in the show - can all be heard on the soundtrack.

Daisy Jones and the Six - Official trailer

The official Daisy Jones and the Six trailer was teased by Amazon on February 16. It starts with Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin) meeting Daisy Jones (Riley Keough) in a recording studio for the first time to perform the song he wrote Honeycomb.

The trailer then flits forward to the song being a success, with the band becoming famous and embarking on a statewide tour. As lead vocalists Billy and Daisy grow closer on the road and indeed on stage, it seems to cause friction between Billy and his wife Camila (Camila Murrone). 

"It's what people want to see. It's an act," he tells a teary-eyed Camila. But it looks like his wife isn't the only one seeking answers. 

"Tell me that there's nothing going on between us," says Daisy in a scene where she confronts Billy. "Tell me that i'm crazy."

Cue punch-ups, guitars being smashed and a whole lot of chaos. The trailer ends with the two leads back in the studio, ending the song on the line: "We can make a good thing bad."

During the audition process, Riley Keough made an impression with casting directors, who she told: "I was put on this earth to be Daisy."

Of the titular character, Riley told The New York Times: "Daisy is complicated. I didn’t identify with Daisy’s desire to sing and write songs, because that’s something I had never done. What I connected with was Daisy’s artistry and how she felt, not being taken seriously as a young woman."

Whilst Riley hasn't written songs before, her family sure has a history of it. Riley is the grandaughter of Priscilla and Elvis Presley and daughter of the late singer-songwriter Lisa-Marie Presley. You could say her musical heritage makes her perfect for the part.

Daisy shares the stage with fellow frontman Billy Dunne played by Peaky Blinders, Me Before You and Hunger Games hunk Sam Claflin. He admitted to Gentleman's Journal that "I’d never picked up a guitar in my life" before the role. As it turned out the pandemic gave the 36-year-old some much needed time to get acquainted with the instrument. "Genuinely, I’m thanking my lucky stars for the extra practice," he continues. "Because, originally, I only had five weeks to learn the guitar. That would have been a very different series…"

The rest of the band is comprised of rising US and UK acting talent. Suki Waterhouse - currently dating Robert Pattinson - plays keyboardist Karen Sirko (a piano novice before the role). Will Harrison plays the lead guitarist and Billy's brother Graham Dunne, whilst Sebastian Chacon plays the drummer Warren Rojas (his name in the book is Warren Rhodes). Josh Whitehouse completes the band as bassist Eddie Roundtree - and he marks one of the only actors who played the instrument before beign cast.
