The series is based on a novel by the same name written by Taylor Jenkins Reid. While the series is gaining traction from fans of the book, it’s also gaining popularity due to the chemistry of the two lead actors and the hip catchy tunes featured on the series. In fact, the music has become so popular that the fake band has even released more fake music!

Here’s the tea on what we’re watching: Daisy Jones and The Six

Synopsis: Based on the New York Times best-selling novel, Daisy Jones & the Six follows the story of a 1970s band fronted by two feuding yet charismatic lead singers, Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne. Set to the soundtrack of original music, this is the story of how this iconic band imploded at the height of its powers.

Fun Facts: Reese Witherspoon and her company Hello Sunshine produced the series, alongside Amazon Studios.

The song vocals were performed by the lead actors: Riley Keough and Sam Claflin. And they had even more star power behind the music.

Due to it being a book-to-series adaption, no one is sure if there will be a season two. Based on the popularity, we wouldn’t be surprised if they pen a sequel. And it sounds like the cast might even go on tour! So stay tuned for any updates.
