Based on Hilary Mantel’s Booker Prize-winning novels,
Wolf Hall was adapted by the BBC in conjunction with PBS as a six-part series for television. When the show first aired in the UK in January on BBC Two, the first episode attracted nearly six million viewers. In the US, the April premiere drew 4.4 million viewers on PBS and through streaming services.
