New period drama My Mother and Other Strangers is headed to PBS’ Masterpiece this summer. The five-part series premieres on Sunday, June 18 at 8pm, just ahead of the debut of the third season of popular mystery drama Grantchester.

The wartime drama chronicles the story of the Coyne family, who live in a remote village in Northern Ireland during World War II. But their lives are turned upside down with the arrival of hundreds of American fighter pilots, when a U.S. air base is established nearby.
