“What harm could there be in returning smile for a smile and in allowing the most charming man she had ever met to conquer the few remaining corners of her heart where common sense retained a last fleeting hold?”
The British historical drama, Sanditon has finally come to an end. The series got adapted by Andrew Davies, who created the show from an unfinished manuscript by Jane Austen. The series revolved around a young and Naïve heroine, Charlotte Heywood, who comes to town. However, in an excited mood, she soon discovers the dark and twisted secrets of Society. The series has been a wonderful experience for the cast and the audience. Giving life to Jane Austen’s unfinished work and making it into an unforgettable series is a work of dedication. Now, after watching the third season finale we fans are eager to know, Will we get Sanditon Season 4?
Will we get Sanditon Season 4?
The executive producer for Red Planet Pictures, Belinda Campbell added: “It’s a thrill to be bringing Sanditon back to audiences for one more trip to the seaside. This third and final season is full of the heart and joyful spirit that viewers will connect with. Our dedicated fans have been amazing in their support of the show, and we hope they’ll enjoy the conclusion of Charlotte & Georgiana’s stories.” This is enough to clarify, the answer to the most asked question, Will we get Sanditon Season 4?
No, we won’t be getting Sanditon Season 4. We know it’s sad and heartbreaking, just like executive producer Susanne Simpson said, “Sanditon has been an incredibly special series for Masterpiece, and we know it has found its way into the hearts of countless fans. While we are sad to say goodbye to the series, we know our audience has a lot to look forward to in this new season.”
If this isn’t clear yet, hear it from the head writer Justin Young, “Let me emphasise [season 4 is] never going to happen. Throughout the whole process, there were a lot of notes for a long time about making sure you leave some strands open & you don’t close everything off for season 4. After we finished writing season 3, we thought actually ‘No, this is it’. We were done. And I’m glad of that.” He further added, “I think it would have been diminishing returns. Knowing that it’s now this triptych is quite pleasing. It’s self-contained and exists.”
So we have finally got the answer to our question (Will we get Sanditon Season 4?) We all had an idea since we got the happy ending in the third season. After finally breaking her engagement with Ralph last week, Charlotte’s dreams of being with Alexander Colbourne were dashed when she learned Lydia Montrose was engaged. We all were sad when we heard how our favourite couple, whom we are shipping from the start, can’t be together.
Luckily for Charlette, Miss Montrose had carried on a secret courtship, meaning that Colbourne had to rush to a departing Charlotte to declare his love and intention to marry! Colbourne and Charlotte reunited on the same cliff on which Sidney broke Charlotte’s heart. Both cast members who played the lead role expressed how magnetic and epic the last scene felt. Ben Lloyd-Hughes told how great relief it was for his character to finally get away from the drama and be with the girl he loved.
While we were bewitched by the final kiss between our beloved couple while we loved the scene, & the dialogues, the cast expressed how chaotic the background scene was. It was demanded to be realistic but also dramatic and poignant. Since we all are happy with the ending we received in the third season finale, we can somewhere find in our hearts to accept that Sanditon Season 4 is not going to come.
