Sanditon is just around the corner to return with Sanditon Season 3 and the final season. Andrew Davies developed this historical drama series which is adapted from Jane Austen’s unfinished manuscript.
Austen completed 24000 words at the time of her death. The plot is set in the Regency era and revolves around a naive and young heroine Charlotte Heywood who navigates a new seaside resort called Sanditon where she comes unexpectedly and where the spirited and unconventional woman comes face to face with face with propagandists and scheming inhabitants.
The series received a mixed reception from viewers as some of them criticized the series for its depiction of us*x nudism which is alien to the works of Jane Austen and was called as “un-Austen-like”.
Viewers are also expecting a happy ending as this is the general feature of Austen’s world.
