The Underground Railroad | Official Trailer


“Nothing was given, all was earned. Hold on to what belongs to you.” From Academy Award® winner Barry Jenkins and based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Colson Whitehead comes the Amazon Original limited series “The Underground Railroad”.

The Underground Railroad is a historical fiction novel by American author Colson Whitehead published by Doubleday in 2016.

The alternate history novel tells the story of Cora and Caesar, two slaves in the southeastern United States during the 19th century, who make a bid for freedom from their Georgia plantation by following the Underground Railroad, which the novel depicts as primarily a rail transport system in addition to a series of safe houses and secret routes.

I am really looking forward to this series. I read the book and enjoyed the unique concept and I plan on doing a podcast recap of the series. I want to breakdown the similarities and differences between the novel and series. I had so many thoughts about the novel so I'm sure I'll have tons to discuss once I see the series. 

The series premiers May 14 on Prime Video.
