    Riley Keough And Sam Claflin Star In The First "Daisy Jones & The Six" Trailer, And I'm Just So Excited

    Riley Keough and Sam Claflin sing "Regret Me" in the first trailer for Daisy Jones & the Six, so, yes, I am freaking out over here.

    2023 is going to be filled with amazing new TV shows, but the one I am arguably THE most excited about is Daisy Jones & the Six on Prime Video.

    Based on the bestselling novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, this limited series details the rise and fall of renowned rock band Daisy Jones & the Six. In 1977, the band was on top of the world. Fronted by two charismatic lead singers — Daisy Jones (Riley Keough) and Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin) — the band had risen from obscurity to fame.

    Then, after a sold-out show in Chicago, they suddenly called it quits. Now, decades later, the band members have finally agreed to reveal the truth while being interviewed.

    Backed by the songs from the band's famous album Aurora, Daisy Jones & the Six takes a deep look at the rise, fall, and price of fame.

    Before we get into more about the show, the music, the cast, and everything in between, here's the first teaser trailer, which includes our first listen of the band playing together:

    Okay, so first things first. Yes, author Reid has confirmed that Daisy Jones & the Six was inspired by Fleetwood Mac. So those Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham vibes you're picking up are purposeful, and so amazing.

    Alongside Keough and Claflin, Daisy Jones & the Six stars Camila Morrone as Camila Dunne, Will Harrison as Graham Dunne, Suki Waterhouse as Karen Sirko, Josh Whitehouse as Eddie Roundtree, Sebastian Chacon as Warren Rojas, Nabiyah Be as Simone Jackson, and Tom Wright as Teddy Price, with a special appearance by Timothy Olyphant as Rod Reyes.

    And I just have to say, these actors understood the assignment. I mean, my god, watching Daisy Jones & the Six leap off the page and into this trailer is already making me so excited.

    Like, Riley and Sam — the sexual tension between Daisy and Billy is already palpable. And this transition from Billy and Camila to Daisy and Billy, oh my god.

    I don't wanna give too much away for non–book readers who get to enjoy this story for the first time through this show, but just know I can't wait to flail about everything together.

    Now, as for the music, which is arguably one of the most important parts of Daisy Jones & the Six, there will be 24 original songs written exclusively for the series and recorded by the cast.

    I know we are still a little over a month away from Daisy Jones & the Six premiering, but I will be obsessing over this trailer and the little snippets of music from it until then.
