Sanditon Season 3 Release Date: For fans yearning for Charlotte (Rose Williams) and Colbourne (Ben Lloyd-Hughes) to get together, Season 2 finishes on a bad note, but their tale isn’t done yet.
Sanditon was ordered for two new seasons when Masterpiece on PBS restored the shelved show for a second season. Seasons 2 and 3 of Sanditon were shot back-to-back last year, indicating that more Sanditon is on the way…
What is The Storyline Sanditon Season 3 Based Upon?
The show, which is based on an unfinished novel by Jane Austen, struggled to find an audience at first and was not renewed by its British broadcaster, ITV, after its first season. But Sanditon got a fresh lease on life in the United States, where it gathered such a devoted following that PBS unexpectedly renewed the show in May of 2021.
Season 2 ended its run on Sunday, April 24, after a long, bumpy path to the small screen, with a climax that stunned legions of fans.
The new season finds Charlotte in another love triangle, this time with Alexander Colbourne (Ben Lloyd-Hughes) and Colonel Lennox, following the death of Theo James’s Sidney Parker (Tom Weston-Jones). Charlotte announced her engagement to a whole new man in the finale, setting up plenty of love drama for the new season.
What Happened at The End of Season 2?
However, a job as a governess for the reclusive Alexander Colbourne quickly draws her away. The two develop a friendship over time and eventually fall in love. Colbourne, on the other hand, misses his chance to propose to Charlotte, resulting in a brawl between the two would-be lovers.
Charlotte Love Story Begins
Charlotte has returned home to her family’s farm in Willingdon and accepted a proposal from local farmer Ralph at the end of Sanditon Season 2.
As you can see, Colbourne and his charges, Augusta and Leo (the latter of whom may be narrating the clip), will return to Sanditon from unknown locations at some point. This means he’ll ultimately run across Charlotte again, but she won’t be able to start a romance with him right away, even if she has forgiven him. Oh, the suspense!
Georgiana Trying To Reconcile
Georgiana spent a lot of time in the second season trying to reconcile being the child of a slave and a slave owner, as well as inheriting money from a slave-owning company, so I’m forward to watching how her search for her mother leads her to discover who she is and where she belongs in the world.
In Season 3, Georgiana is on a mission to discover where her mother is and who she is. That brings us back to the question of who she is and where she stands in the world. And how will she describe herself?
How Many Episodes Will Be There of Sanditon Season 3?
Head writer Justin Young revealed to Salon that Sanditon has continued its new process of writing six episodes for the upcoming season, which may be considered a bit of a bummer.
Season 1 viewers were treated to eight episodes, but Season 3 will offer six new episodes, exactly like Season 2, which just aired. Six new episodes of Sanditon are better than none, and as everyone who saw Season 2 knows, the writers are more than capable of producing a number of surprising twists and swoon-worthy romances in that amount of time.
Who Will Be Return in Sanditon Season 3?
Sanditon Season 3 will delve more into Charlotte and Colbourne’s relationship, according to Decider. Naturally, there is a snag.
Sanditon showrunner Justin Young told Decider, “The type of cliffhanger of the season is that Charlotte is now engaged to Ralph.” “So that’s where we’ll find her at the start of Season 3.” And that is the question that Season 3 will address: Colbourne is her favorite. He cares about her. We understand. But now that she’s engaged to Ralph, how will it work out?
Charles Lockhart (Alexander Vlahos) will also return next season, according to Young, but don’t expect him to make amends with Georgiana (Crystal Clarke). Miss Lambe’s situation, though, should be improving.
“I feel pleased about where we left Georgiana after these two seasons,” Crystal Clarke told Decider. It makes me extremely happy. I’m happy for people to see it, and I’m even more excited to see how they react.”
Who will Not Return?
There are a few characters who will not return in Sanditon Season 3? Colonel Lennox and Esther Babbington (Tom Weston-Jones) (Charlotte Spencer).
“I don’t believe it’s too much of a spoiler to state that we won’t see Lennox in Season 3.” Young stated, “He’s kind of gone.” “I think Esther has everything she’s ever desired where we leave her at the end of Season 2.” “As far as I’m concerned, Esther’s narrative is over. She’s happy, married, and now she has a child who she adores.”
“I’ve always said with relation to this program that, like a novel, I believe we have to honor the fact that characters have finite stories.” So, rather than having them in a kind of ensemble treading water after their storylines are finished, I’d rather just say that’s the end of their story and they go on while we introduce new characters,” Young added.
Did Sanditon Season 3 Already Filmed Out?
While we’re able to assuage fan concerns regarding Sanditon Season 3, I believe it’s only reasonable to continue. If you’re worried about another long wait between seasons like there was between Seasons 1 and 2, you don’t have to be concerned.
According to Newsweek, the third season was shot concurrently with the second. Not only that but Season 3 is already finished with primary photography, with filming taking place from July to December 2021.
Sanditon Season 3 Release Date
Fans of Sanditon will have to wait a little longer! The third and last season of Sanditon is set to broadcast on Masterpiece on PBS in January 2023, according to Decider.
Because the majority of the work for Season 3 of Sanditon has already been completed, we won’t have to wait long for the new episodes to air on PBS Masterpiece. The following season will premiere in 2023.
Sanditon is based on Jane Austen’s unfinished novel of the same name. Charlotte Heywood is followed as she travels to Sanditon, a seaside resort where she meets hopeful entrepreneurs, miserly grand dames, and handsome gentlemen. Charlotte is devastated to learn that her first love, Sidney Parker (Theo James), has died in Season 2 of Sanditon.
