I love period dramas. Naturally, I am a Jane Austen enthusiast and a fan of Sanditon and have started this website as a place of reflection in anticipation of Sanditon Seasons 2 and 3, soon to be aired on PBS Masterpiece and BritBoxUK on March 20, 2022. When the first Sanditon episode is released, I’m going to rejoice in the return of many characters, be enthralled and interested in the new characters, and eventually dissect every episode for my own enjoyment. What results are obtained from that close observation and reflection, will be my own thoughts and do not necessarily represent the creators or other fans. This site is meant to be a fan-based celebration and a place of reflection. Comments will be moderated but are welcome!

While we wait for the show to air in March of 2022, I am occupying myself by posting about the various characters in Sanditon season one. As new characters arrive, I’ll also add them to the list. In addition, I’m recapping some of the podcasts as released by PBS Masterpiece. Subscribe to receive email notices of new posts, news, and tidbits about the show you might find interesting.

Below is the countdown to the first episode based on Pacific Standard Time. No doubt when it airs, everyone on the east coast of the USA will probably be on Twitter with comments and spoilers three hours earlier!

A heartfelt thanks to the talented writers, cast, and crew who have worked so hard to give us two new seasons of Sanditon. Thanks to BritBoxUK and PBS Masterpiece for bringing Sanditon back for the fans to enjoy. I know that we will be amazed when it arrives.

Just released January 20, 2022! Thank you, PBS!
