Masterpiece on PBS announced today that Sanditon will be coming to an end after its upcoming third season. The network saved the British drama from cancellation in 2021 by picking it up for Seasons 2 and 3 after original network ITV passed on further seasons. The series was brought stateside in 2020, where it has garnered high acclaim from critics and audiences alike.

Based on Jane Austen's final, unfinished novel, the series follows young heroine Charlotte Heywood, who is brought to the seaside town of Sanditon by a chance accident during Regency era. Spirited and naive, Charlotte hopes to experience everything Sanditon has to offer, but is surprised by its scheming and ambitious residents, and intrigued by the secrets they keep.

The third and final season of Sanditon premieres on March 19, 2023.
