Hulu has premiered the official trailer for “The Artful Dodger,” its upcoming period drama which serves as a sequel spin-off to Charles Dickens’ “Oliver Twist”.

“The Maze Runner” and “The Queen’s Gambit” star Thomas Brodie-Sangster plays Jack Dawkins who has transferred his skills as a nimble-fingered child pickpocket many years ago to now working as a surgeon in 1850s Australia.

His past returns to haunt him with the arrival of Fagin (David Thewlis), luring him back into a world of crime, while the local governor’s daughter (Maia Mitchell), who is determined to become the colony’s first female surgeon, is a greater threat to his heart.

Damon Herriman, Miranda Tapsell and Tim Minchin co-star in the eight-episode series dubbed a “tale of reinvention, betrayal, redemption, and love with a twist”.

James McNamara, David Maher and David Taylor created the series for Curio Pictures and Beach Road Pictures. Jo Porter, Maher and Taylor executive produce.

“The Artful Dodger” premieres November 29th on Disney+ and Hulu.
