Anansi Boys Plot and Cast
It follows the story of Charlie Nancy, a young man who is used to being embarrassed by his estranged father. But, when his father passes away, Charlie discovers that his father was Anansi, the trickster god of stories.
He also learns that he has a brother named Spider, who upon entering his life, brings with him more interesting and dangerous adventures. This is a standalone story and not connected to Gaiman’s other Amazon Prime series, American Gods.
Now, talking about the cast, Delroy Lindo was first chosen to play the role of Mr. Nancy. In September 2021, it was announced Malachi Kirby would star as both of Mr. Nancy’s sons, Fat Charlie and Spider. Amarah-Jae St. Aubyn and Grace Saif were cast as the female leads Rosie Noah and Daisy Day respectively, as revealed in December 2021.
Anansi Boys Release Date
Neil Gaiman confirmed in June 2022 that the series has finished filming but that it would take a year to complete the post-production work. Fans can expect to see the adaptation in 2023.
The show will consist of six episodes and it will drop on Amazon Prime Video. The other information are still not revealed. Let’s wait to have a word from the makers soon.
