We were finally invited back to the titular resort…
Jane Austen’s work has earned a slew of screen adaptations over the years, both in film and television.
One of the most influential and beloved writers of all time, it’s no surprise that we keep seeing more translations of his timeless stories. In fact, we were even treated to adaptations of his unfinished work in the case of Sanditon.
The Andrew Davies series is based on one of the author’s incomplete manuscripts and began airing in August 2019.
Now that it’s back for more episodes, let’s highlight where to watch Sanditon season 2 in the UK.
Where to watch Sanditon season 2 in the UK
Sanditon Season 2 Episode 1 was added to BritBox in the UK on Monday 21 March 2022.
The following episodes will be available to stream every Monday. Not all episodes dropped on the platform on the same day, so you can’t binge on the entire season just yet.
The second season will consist of six episodes in total. Given this, the finale will arrive on BritBox on Monday, April 25, 2022.
For those who aren’t a BritBox subscriber yet, a monthly subscription costs just £5.99, while you can also opt for an annual subscription for £59.99 to save some cash.
“We kind of increased the dial on those elements”
Speaking to Town & Country Magazine, Sanditon editor Justin Young was asked if fan response shaped the second season:
“…There was never a moment where I was like, ‘I’m going to do this because I know the fans are going to like this. Or I have to do this. Guessing an audience is very dangerous. I had to believe they gave me the job because they trusted my tastes and judgment.
He continued, “Having said that, we knew, and Masterpiece was clear, that people loved the romance and the Jane Austen-ness of it. We kind of increased the dial on those elements.
