First look images at the second series of Sanditon, continues filming in Bristol, have been released.
Sanditon, the acclaimed drama based on Jane Austen’s final, unfinished novel and developed by Emmy®- and BAFTA-winning writer Andrew Davies, left fans in suspense and clamouring for more with the first season’s heart-breaking finale.
The new series picks up the action nine months later, as the town grows in popularity, and features characters familiar and new.
The images include Charlotte (Rose Williams) taking up the role of governess to Augusta Wilson (Eloise Webb), Alexander Colbourne’s ward and niece, who at the age of 17 pushes against authority and soon gives Charlotte a run for her money.
Charlotte’s spirited younger sister, Alison Heywood (Rosie Graham) comes to Sanditon to pursue her own romantic dream, and joined by The Parkers, the second series promises new romances, friendships and challenges for the residents as the Army make Sanditon their new base.
The Parkers are back, as Tom Parker (Kris 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.
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?
BritBox UK has boarded the show as a co-producer and will premiere the series as a BritBox Original in the UK.
