Will new Daisy Jones & The Six series live up to the hype?

January 31, 2023

Daisy Jones & The Six is a New York Times best-selling novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Soon it will be coming to everyone’s screens on March 3 on Amazon Prime and will release weekly until March 24. The series will contain ten episodes. Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine produced the series.


Daisy Jones & The Six is a novel about a rock and roll band in the 70s on the road to becoming one of the most successful groups and dives into the reasons why the group split up despite the massive success. It explores the rise and fall of this fictitious band. The author loosely based the group off of the famous band from the 70s, Fleetwood Mac.


The novel has become a beloved book for many and has gained massive popularity. Jenkins Reid has grown a mass following for having written other books that have created a fictional world of famous characters like her novels, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and Malibu Rising. 


The miniseries of Daisy Jones & The Six will star Riley Keough as the main character of Daisy Jones and Sam Clafin as Billy Dunne who plays one of the lead singers in the band. Fans are excited to see how these actors will bring these iconic characters to real life. 


Due to the novel being based on a band, Jenkins Reid created a plethora of songs for this fictitious band. The album that the band Daisy Jones & The Six created will be available for viewers to listen to. They will be releasing the entire record on March 3, when the series comes out. The record’s name is “Aurora” and they currently released one song called, “Regret Me.”


Although many fans of the book have been excited to watch an on-screen adaptation, like any other adaptation of a book, it might not be exactly like the book. The book is uniquely laid out in that it is in the form of interviews 20 years later to discuss the rise and fall of the band. Whether or not the series follows this structure is still not known. 


So far, the one song that has been released,” Regret Me” does not contain some of the original lyrics from the novel. It is missing the iconic lyric, “And, baby, when you think of me I hope it ruins rock ‘n’ roll.”


We can all anticipate this musical series to be a great success but it will be interesting to find out just how accurately the series stays true to the novel.
