Taylor Jenkins Reid's bestselling novel about a band's toxic relationship has captivated book clubs everywhere, and now Reese Witherspoon's Hello Productions is giving the beloved book the TV treatment. Needless to say, we're ready to rock!
"I admire Reese on a number of different levels, but one of the biggest [reasons] is what a champion she is for storytelling about women and how unapologetic she’s been," Jenkins Reid told Glamour (opens in new tab) in August 2022.
Truthfully speaking, waiting for this series debut is going to be incredibly difficult! Here's everything we know about Daisy Jones and the Six, including a look at the new official trailer.

What is 'Daisy Jones & the Six' about?
The story follows young Daisy Jones (played onscreen by Riley Keough), who's caught up in the infamous sex, drugs and rock and roll trifecta. When she begins to take the art more seriously, she finds herself entangled with a rock band, The Six, and its beguiling lead, Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin), who has a few issues of his own.
Together, they all make great music...until, one day, they don't. What happened to this iconic group? What caused them to split? After several decades, they finally decide it's time to reveal the truth and give the fans the answers they've long been waiting for.
We're expecting a large helping of romance, drama, great tunes, and, of course, a slew of fun '70s fashion trends. And it certainly doesn't hurt that the titular lead is being portrayed by Keough, a.k.a. Elvis Presley's granddaughter.
Even with rock 'n roll history coursing through her blood, the Zola actress admitted that her singing needed work...a lot of work. In an interview with Vanity Fair (opens in new tab), Keough confessed: "I didn’t even know how one gets to be able to sing loud. I went to a vocal coach and I was like, 'They need me to belt.' I sounded so bad that I started crying."
Ultimately, her tenaciousness allowed her to take a page from her grandfather's book and nail the role of the fictional singer.
"I’m gonna go to this vocal coach, and he’s gonna teach me how to f****** belt, whatever I need to do to get this. It really became about pushing myself to do things I’ve never done before," Keough further revealed to Vanity Fair.
Watch the 'Daisy Jones & the Six' trailer:
On Wednesday, January 25, Amazon dropped its first trailer for the show, which gives us a look at the fake documentary-style series that uncovers the downfall of Daisy Jones and The Six.
"Look, I know you said that I would tell you everything. But how much of everything do you really want to know," Daisy asks the camera.
And it looked like Keough's time with her voice coach paid off—judging from the trailer, Riley's Daisy managed to stick to her word and belt one out. (Is anyone else getting some Stevie Nicks vibes?)

Author Taylor Jenkins Reid is super impressed with the way in which her on-page characters came to life onscreen. In an interview with Good Morning America (opens in new tab), she said: "To have such an amazing cast, to have each role cast so perfectly and to watch these actors—they take the characters and make them even more than they are on the page. And so to watch them sort of become it and then make it even bigger and deeper, it's just a thrill."
In the meantime, get reacquainted with Taylor Jenkins Reid's bestseller and crank up some Fleetwood Mac to get you prepared for what's ahead this spring. Daisy, we'll be right here waiting!
