‘Sanditon’ Renewed for 2 Seasons After Fan Campaign

1 Min Read

Airing on PBS, Sanditon was given the axe by the network after just one season but fans have been campaigning hard for the show to be renewed and PBS listened. Thanks to their hard work, Sanditon will get not one but two additional seasons! ITV has aquired the two new seasons with BritBox Original (UK) co-producing.

Sanditon is based on Jane Austen’s final, unfinished novel and tells the story of Charlotte Heywood, portrayed on screen by Rose Williams, as she returns to Sanditon, a costal resort. Justin Young, who wrote the first four episodes of season 1, has signed on as the lead writer and executive producer for the new seasons alongside Emmy and BAFTA-Award winning writer Andrew Davies.

Young is also known for his work on Death in Paradise and Ripper Street. Williams will reprise her role as the young heroine but there are no further details on the remaining cast just yet. Filming is expected to begin later this year.
