It's coming: season three of Sanditon will premiere on WTTW and PBS Sunday, March 19. Even better, the whole season will be available to stream by WTTW Passport members beginning that day.
It will be a season to savor, as it will be the last of the show—which is exciting even if bittersweet, because it means the wrapping up of the stories of Charlotte, Georgiana, Tom, and the rest!
We have already seen a few photos from the upcoming season, including a glimpse of a new character, Lord Montrose, with Georgiana, and Charlotte with her surprise soon-to-be-husband Ralph Starling. But now we have more images and information about other new characters.
Lord Montrose (Edward Davis) is the son of a noblewoman (Emma Fielding, whom you might recognize as Dahlman from Van der Valk) eager to find suitable marriages for her children, including Lydia (Alice Orr-Ewing, who appeared in one episode of Victoria).
Rowleigh Pryce (James Bolam) is another newcomer to Sanditon interested not in love but wealth: he might invest in the resort town with Tom, but a meeting with his match Lady Denham could complicate things.
Finally, there's another eligible bachelor: Alexander Colbourne's lawyer brother Samuel (Liam Garrigan, who was in an episode of COBRA.) Will he fall in love? It seems to be a common occurence in Sanditon. We're eager to see!
