More from Deadline

The new season of the drama based on Jane Austen’s final, unfinished novel, picks up nine months later, as the beautiful seaside resort town is growing in popularity.

The series is developed by BAFTA-winning writer Andrew Davies. Justin Young, who wrote four episodes of the first season, will develop the new seasons and take the role of lead writer and executive producer. Davies, who originally created the series, will also return to write several episodes and executive produce.

Sanditon is produced by Red Planet Pictures with Belinda Campbell as exec producer alongside Masterpiece’s Susanne Simpson and Chloe Tucker for ITV/BritBox.

Sanditon
was renewed for seasons two and three following its successful run in the U.S. on Masterpiece on PBS.
