HANKINS) AND ADRIAN SCARBOROUGH (DR. FUCHS) ARE CONFIRMED TO RETURN TO THE MASTERPIECE, BRITBOX UK AND ITV DRAMA

[Thursday, 22 July, 2021]: Cameras are now rolling on the second season of the Red Planet Pictures and MASTERPIECE drama Sanditon, for MASTERPIECE PBS, BritBox UK and ITV, as a wave of new inhabitants join heroine Charlotte Heywood (Rose Williams) for her return to the picturesque coastal resort.

Sanditon, the acclaimed drama based on Jane Austen's final, unfinished novel and developed by Emmy(R) and BAFTA-winning writer Andrew Davies, left fans in suspense and clamoring for more with the first season's heart-breaking finale. The new series will pick up the action nine months later, as the town is growing in popularity, and will feature characters familiar and new.

Charlotte returns to the beautiful seaside resort and soon attracts the attention of not one, but two new men. And, in her last summer season before turning 21, Georgiana Lambe (Crystal Clarke), keen to forge her own identity, gets up to mischief in the name of love... but will she run the risk of being lonelier than ever before?

The Parkers are back, as Tom (Marshall) strives to rebuild Sanditon. But there are many unforeseen issues awaiting him, while the secrets and lies of the dysfunctional Denhams continue to rock the foundations of the sunny seaside town.

The Army arrives to make Sanditon their new base and with them bring potential new romances, friendships and challenges for the residents.

New characters this season include Alexander Colbourne (Ben Lloyd- Hughes, Industry), a mysterious resident with a complex family history, who is in stark contrast to self-assured war hero Colonel Francis Lennox (Tom Weston-Jones, Grace), his rival for Charlotte's affections.

We also meet Charlotte's spirited younger sister, Alison Heywood (Rosie Graham, Outlander), who comes to Sanditon to pursue her own romantic dream. Alison is soon acquainted with the handsome and charming Captain William Carter (Maxim Ays, Still So Awkward). Other intriguing newcomers include Captain Declan Fraser (Frank Blake, Normal People), a courageous character (if a little rough around the edges), and the striking and flamboyant Charles Lockhart (Alexander Vlahos, Versailles), a Byronic artist who arrives to paint portraits of Sanditon's fashionable and wealthy residents.

Belinda Campbell, Executive Producer and joint Managing Director of Red Planet Pictures, says, "It's a joy to be returning to the sunshiny shores of Sanditon in the company of such an incredible cast-including some very exciting new faces. Writer/Executive Producer Justin Young has plenty of fabulous adventures in store for all our characters. I can't wait to see them come to life on screen."

"Fans who are craving romance and escape will find them in abundance in the new season of Sanditon, with its intriguing characters and captivating storylines," says MASTERPIECE Executive Producer Susanne Simpson. "Our partners at Red Planet Pictures have done a brilliant job capturing the magic that won viewers' hearts in Season One." MASTERPIECE is presented on PBS by GBH Boston.

Sanditon has been renewed for Seasons Two and Three following its successful run in the US on MASTERPIECE on PBS. BritBox UK has boarded the show as a co-producer and will premiere the series as a BritBox Original in the UK. The two new seasons of Sanditon have been acquired by ITV, which originally launched the first series in 2019, and will air on the channel following the premiere window on BritBox UK. Justin Young (Death in Paradise, Ripper Street), who wrote four episodes of the first season of Sanditon, has developed the new series and takes the role of lead writer and executive producer. Davies, who originally created the drama, also returns to write and executive produce. Colin Bytheway, Janice Okoh, Ellen Taylor and Robin French also write for the series.

BBC Studios are the international distributors of all three series; and have sold series one of Sanditon to176 countries across the globe since its 2019 UK premiere on ITV. PBS Distribution is the distributor of all three seasons in the US and Canada. The series producer is Rebecca Hedderly (Casualty), the producers are Ian Hogan (Black Mirror) and Amy Rodriguez (Harlots) and lead director is Charles Sturridge (Marcella), with Ethosheia Hylton (Ackley Bridge) directing episodes 4,5 and 6. Executive producers are Belinda Campbell and Tim Key for Red Planet Pictures, Susanne Simpson for MASTERPIECE and Chloe Tucker for ITV/BritBox UK.
