[via press release from BBC America]


- Spoiler alert ahead -

BBC AMERICA has announced that it is co-producing the new season of Robin Hood. Season 3, currently filming on location in Budapest, will air on the channel in 2009.

� Robin Hood (13 x 60) is a Tiger Aspect production for BBC in association with BBC AMERICA and distributed by BBC Worldwide.

Following the recent critical success of Season 2 on the channel, Robin Hood fans will be pleased to know that their show is back for an all new season. Season 3 returns with an older and tougher Robin, hell bent on revenge following the tragic murder of Marian by Gisborne and the Sheriff's failure to kill Prince John. The Sheriff is more precarious and unpredictable than ever with new threats looming over him and there's the much anticipated arrival of Friar Tuck (David Harewood, Blood Diamond) who joins the gang and becomes one of Robin's closest allies.

However, the tension on-screen will kick-off at the outset as Jonas Armstrong, who plays Robin Hood and updated the popular legend for a whole new generation, is set to bow out of the show in an explosive, nail biting Season 3 finale. How the legacy unfolds after Jonas leaves is in itself mysterious and intriguing - guaranteed to make fans desperate to find out what happens next.

Jonas Armstrong says: "Playing Robin Hood has been one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Over the last three years I have met some wonderful people and have only amazing memories to take with me. I'm grateful to the fans for their support and to all the cast and crew for their friendship and loyalty throughout, but the time has come to take on new challenges and look at new opportunities."

Foz Allan, Executive Producer says: "Jonas has been a superb Robin Hood who updated the legend for a contemporary audience, reinvigorating it for a whole new generation. It has been a wonderful experience working with Jonas � we will miss him � and wish him all the success for his future. We cannot confirm the series climax, nor can we guarantee who will survive and who won't. You will have to watch it to see! But we can assure you Robin's exit will be unmissable!"
