Emerald City is a fantasy television series that premiered on NBC in 2016. Starring Adria Arjona as Dorothy Gale and Oliver Jackson-Cohen as Lucas, the show is a modern retelling of the beloved classic The Wizard of Oz. The series is set in the magical land of Oz, which has a darker and more complex story than most people originally thought.

Dorothy is a young woman who is transported from her home in Kansas to the land of Oz. Along the way, she meets a mysterious man named Lucas who becomes her protector and guide as she tries to find her way back home. Oz is a land divided by factions and political intrigue. There are the witches, who are the ruling class and have their own agendas, and then there are the ordinary people who are caught in the crossfire.

The show follows the struggles of Dorothy, Lucas, and their allies as they try to navigate the twists and turns of Oz politics and find a way to defeat the witches and restore balance to the land. Along the way, they are aided by a cast of characters including the powerful witch West (Ana Ularu), the enigmatic Ojo (Hamada Riad), and the rebellious Jack (Gerran Howell).

One of the standout performances in Emerald City is from Joely Richardson, who plays Glinda, the good witch. Richardson brings a nuanced and complex portrayal of the character, who is not the flawless saint we remember from the original story. Instead, she is a flawed and ambitious character who is willing to use any means necessary to achieve her goals.

Another standout performer is Vincent D'Onofrio, who plays the enigmatic and intimidating wizard who rules over Oz. D'Onofrio's performance is both terrifying and captivating, making the character one of the most interesting and enigmatic figures in the show.

Overall, Emerald City is a beautifully shot and well-acted fantasy series that is perfect for fans of the original story and those who love dark and complex storytelling. The show is full of surprises and unexpected twists that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats, and the cast of characters is a joy to watch as they navigate the intricate web of Oz politics. Whether you are a longtime fan of The Wizard of Oz or are just looking for a new and engrossing series to watch, Emerald City is definitely worth checking out.

Emerald City is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (9 episodes). The series first aired on January 6, 2017.
