ITV Withdraws From Production Of Sanditon

In January, the series got a shock when its producer ITV decided to stop their affiliation with the series. Until then, the show was a joint production between iTV and PBS Masterpiece. This meant that PBS Masterpiece would have to bring a new production house for funding the series. Due to the nature of the series, the series has high production costs. This raised several questions on the renewal of series for a second season. Fans of the show were particularly worried as the central characters Charlotte and Sidney did not get the fairy tale ending as expected.

What Is The Status Of Sanditon Season 2?

After what happened in January, many people were speculating that the second season would not come. The fear of the fans came true when PBS Masterpiece announced that they are not planning to renew the season. They took to Twitter to inform the fans of the show about this. Their statement said,

β€œDear #SanditonPBS fans: We want to thank you sincerely for your support during our broadcast. We love the series and wish it could go on; however, at this time, there are no plans for another season. You’ll be the first to know if that changes!”
