With series 2 of Sanditon in our collective rear-view mirrors as of this past Sunday on PBS, Masterpiece has given us a brief sneak peak at series 3 (accent on ‘brief’) which is tentatively slated for 2023 broadcast. Thankfully, series 2 was filled with enough shocks, surprises, delights, romance and heartbreak to make most everyone forget about the shocking series 1 departure of Theo James as Sidney Parker. No spoilers here just in case there are a few series 2 stragglers in our midst.
Starring Rose Williams, Crystal Clarke Anne Reid, Kris Marshall and Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Sanditon rose from the ashes thanks, in large part, to a herculean effort by fans to revive the series following a 2-year hiatus between series 1 and series 2. With series 3 shot and ‘in the can’, long-time fans won’t have long to wait before returning to the seaside resort town and, according to the cast, it’s not the end of the story by any means.
Sanditon S3 will return in 2023.
