I love period dramas. Naturally, I am a Jane Austen enthusiast and a fan of Sanditon and have started this website in support of the writers, cast, and crew who brought Sanditon Season 2 on PBS Masterpiece and BritBoxUK. On March 20-21, 2022, we were introduced to the new sets and characters. Season 3 will air in 2023.

As the episodes are released, I will be posting recaps and other articles. What results are obtained from my observation and reflection on the series, will be my own thoughts and do not necessarily represent other fans. This site is meant to be a celebration and a place of reflection. Comments will be moderated but are welcome!

So, grab your beach towels, bathing suits, and umbrellas! We’re going back to the most fashionable destination on the south coast of England to enjoy a new storyline, great characters, and romance.


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.
