When is Sanditon released in the UK?

A UK release date for Sanditon season three has not yet been revealed. Typically, the period drama airs in America first on Masterpiece PBS, before being commissioned by ITV, despite it being based in England and featuring UK cast members.

Although there has been no date announcement, fans have been quick to ask the stars of the show when they can expect new episodes. Star of the show Rose Williams took to her Instagram to share a series of images to celebrate the release on PBS, which prompted a fan to comment: "Any idea when the UK will get to see it?"

Season three of Sanditon launched on PBS last week

The actress replied writing: "I don't know yet sorry," followed by a frustrated-looking emoji.

Other fans had the same idea and were unhappy about the lack of information. A second wrote: "Big joke that the UK still have no clue when we get it!" Another added: "Another Brit show that America sees first... So annoying."

Who is starring in Sanditon season three?

As mentioned, Rose Williams is back to portray the lead character, Charlotte Heywood. Other recognisable faces back include Crystal Clarke as Georgiana Lambe, Kris Marshall as Tom Parker, and Anne Reid as Lady Denham.
