The upcoming series is currently filming in Bristol, and sees Charlotte Heywood (Rose Williams) return to the idyllic and stunning coastal resort. 

Sanditon is an acclaimed drama that is based on Jane Austin’s last, incomplete novel and has been developed by Emmy and BAFTA-winning writer Andrew Davis; the first season left fans in shock in the wake of the show’s heart-breaking finale. 

Season two of the show will take place nine months after season one and, as the town grows ever more popular, new characters and old will be joining the action.

The first season of this classy series debuted in August of 2019, and was a hit with fans of Jane Austin, as well as period dramas and films such as Pride and Prejudice. There is no doubt that season two will bring the same class and excitement as the first one. 

The first look images show Charlotte taking up the role of governess to Augusta Wilson (Eloise Webb), Alexander Colbourne’s ward and niece who, at the age of 17, rebels 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.

Season two sees the return of the Parkers; Tom Parker (Kris Marhsall) sets his sights on rebuilding Sanditon, and despite many challenges facing him, Tom still has ideas on how to make the town better. 

In her last summer before turning 21, Georgiana Lambe (Crystal Clarke) wishes to create her own identity, but in the midst of it, gets in trouble in the name of love; but will she be lonelier that before? 

The second season of Sanditon will premiere on March 20th, 2022 on MASTERPIECE on PBS.
