    Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg's next WWII miniseries, "Masters of the Air," has finally gotten an air date after over a decade of delays.

    Originally announced by HBO back in 2013, the show is set now to release on January 26, 2024, with a two-episode debut and will continue with one episode per week until March 15 on AppleTV+, the MilitaryTimes reported.

    "Masters of the Air" is a nine-episode miniseries based on Donald L. Miller's book by the same name, which follows American bomber pilots of the Eighth Air Force's 100th Bomb Group, who repeatedly risked flying at 25,000 feet in daylight to conduct "perilous bombing raids over Nazi Germany, dealing with frigid temperatures, lack of oxygen and sheer terror," the official logline read, per Deadline magazine.

    "It portrays the psychological and emotional price paid by these young men as they helped destroy the horror of Hitler's Third Reich," it added. "Some were shot down and captured; some were wounded or killed. And some were lucky enough to make it home. Regardless of individual fate, a toll was exacted on them all."

    "'Masters of the Air' is a salute to the brave men of the 8th Air Force, who, through their courage and brotherhood, helped defeat Nazi Germany in World War II," executive producer Gary Goetzman said. "Tom and Steven have always wanted to visualize cinematically what our author Don Miller has called this 'singular event in the history of warfare.' We're thrilled that Apple TV+ has given us the opportunity to combine the efforts of so many talented people, on-screen and behind the camera, to tell this important story."

    Oscar nominees Austin Butler and Barry Keoghan will star in the miniseries, which is the third WWII series from Hanks and Spielberg, after "Band Of Brothers" and "The Pacific."

    HBO originally announced the project back in 2013, but a series of delays and budget considerations saw the series dropped. Years later, Apple TV+ picked up the project, but the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions caused further delays, causing it to be shelved once again in 2020.
