Godless is a Western drama television series that premiered on Netflix on November 22, 2017. The show was created by Scott Frank, who also directed and wrote the entire series. Set in the late 1800s, Godless is a gripping tale of revenge, justice, and survival in the violent and lawless land of the American West.

At the center of the story is the town of La Belle, New Mexico, where the majority of the residents are women. The town was left with a predominantly female population after a mining accident killed most of the men. However, their peaceful existence is threatened when notorious outlaw Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels) and his gang of violent criminals come into town, seeking revenge against one of their own who has fled to La Belle.

Meanwhile, former outlaw Roy Goode (Jack O'Connell) seeks refuge in La Belle after being injured in an altercation with Griffin. Goode is a former member of Griffin's gang, and he knows their ways and tactics. But, he has turned his back on his past and wants to start a new life. However, the past catches up with him, and he finds himself caught in a dangerous conflict between Griffin and the people of La Belle.

Michelle Dockery plays Alice Fletcher, a tough and independent rancher who takes Goode under her wing. Thomas Brodie-Sangster plays her son, who is mute and communicates through sign language. Tantoo Cardinal plays Iyovi, a Native American midwife who has a deep knowledge of the land and serves as a spiritual guide to the people of La Belle.

Other notable characters include Sheriff Bill McNue (Scoot McNairy), an aging lawman who must confront his own demons and struggles to keep the peace in La Belle. Merritt Wever plays Mary Agnes, a former schoolteacher who steps up to lead the town's women and defend their independence. Kim Coates plays Ed Logan, a bartender with a mysterious past, and Sam Waterston plays Marshal John Cook, a renowned lawman who comes out of retirement to pursue Griffin.

Godless is a beautifully shot and well-acted series that captures the brutality and harshness of the Old West. The show explores themes of gender roles, race, sexuality, and violence, providing a fresh take on the Western genre. The characters are complex and multi-dimensional, and the performances are outstanding, particularly from Jeff Daniels, who delivers a chilling portrayal of the ruthless outlaw Frank Griffin.

Overall, Godless is a gripping and thrilling series that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats. It's a must-watch for fans of the Western genre and those looking for an engaging and thought-provoking drama.

Godless is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (7 episodes). The series first aired on November 22, 2017.
