Season Three of ‘Sandition’ Streaming on PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel Starting March 19

The third and final season of “Sanditon,” the series based on the last unfinished novel from author Jane Austen, starts streaming on the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel March 19.

“Sanditon” wraps up with six final episodes, with the series finale landing on the channel April 23.

The subscription rate for the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel is $5.99 per month with an Amazon Prime or Prime Video subscription.

“Sanditon” seasons one and two are currently streaming on the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel. Set amid the romantic intrigues of an English seaside resort in the early 1800s, the first two seasons of “Masterpiece” series, true to themes from other Austen novels, raised and dashed various matrimonial prospects for the heroines, played by Rose Williams (Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris) and Crystal Clarke (Empire of Light).

Williams appears as Charlotte Heywood, a young woman from the country whom fate has thrust into the social scene in Sanditon, which is vying to become the go-to spa for fashionable aristocrats and gentry. Although her father intends her to marry local farmer Ralph Starling (Cai Brigden, “Summer of Rockets”), Charlotte has attracted the attention of some of Sanditon’s most eligible bachelors — among them the enigmatic Alexander Colbourne (Ben Lloyd-Hughes, “The Crown”), a landowner with a mysterious past.

Clarke’s character, Georgiana Lambe, faces an entirely different problem. A mixed-race heiress from the West Indies, she can’t trust any of her suitors, because in all probability they are only interested in her fortune. The two women bond over these courtship dilemmas as well as their resolve to forge their own destinies.

The returning cast includes Flora Mitchell as Colbourne’s tomboyish young daughter Leonora and Eloise Webb (“The Queen’s Gambit”) as his rebellious niece Augusta, who falls for a questionable admirer. Kris Marshall (“Death in Paradise”) reprises his role as Sanditon’s tireless promoter Tom Parker, joined by Kate Ashfield (“A Confession”) as his principled wife Mary and Turlough Convery (Les Misérables) as his ebullient brother Arthur.

Also back are Anne Reid (“Last Tango in Halifax”) as the imperious Lady Denham, Jack Fox (“Cheaters”) as her dissolute nephew Edward, and Sophie Winkleman (“The Chronicles of Narnia”) as Charlotte’s high-society friend Lady Susan, who happens to be the king’s mistress.

Romantic possibilities this season are enhanced by new cast members, including Emma Fielding as the financially distressed Lady Montrose, who arrives in Sanditon to snare matches for her grown children: Lydia (Alice Orr-Ewing, The Theory of Everything), who is an independent-minded young woman; and Lord Henry Montrose (Edward Davis, Emma), a duke whose title alone is an attractive selling point, if he is perhaps less suitable in other ways. James Bolam (The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner) plays Rowleigh Pryce, a crusty investor whom Tom Parker is courting to bankroll a new hotel in Sanditon, subject to Landy Denham’s approval, of course. It turns out that Pryce and Lady Denham share a very interesting past.

And there is Liam Garrigan (“The Pillars of the Earth”), who appears as Alexander Colbourne’s brother Samuel, a London attorney whose legal help is crucial as the plot approaches its climax. An eligible bachelor himself, Samuel gets caught up in the Sanditon marriage market.

The series introduces viewers to Leicester-born Rachita Ray, a police officer who takes on a case that forces her to confront a lifelong personal conflict between her British identity and her South Asian heritage. Rachita receives the promotion she’s been waiting for when she’s asked to join a homicide investigation. However, on her first day she’s told the murder to which she’s been assigned is a “culturally specific homicide.” Rachita’s heart sinks as she suspects she’s a “token appointment,” chosen for her ethnicity rather than her ability. Still, Rachita sticks to the case, determined to both find the killer and call out the obvious biases her colleagues are bringing to the investigation. It’s far from easy as the case isn’t a run-of-the-mill murder; it involves delving deep into the dangerous world of organized crime. Rachita didn’t count what the case stirs up inside her; the realization that she’s been burying a personal identity crisis her whole life.

The series also stars Gemma Whelan (“Game of Thrones”) as her boss DCI Kerry Henderson; Jamie Bamber (“Battlestar Galactica”) as DI Martyn Hunter, who is also Ray’s fiancé; and Maanuv Thiara (“Landscapers”) as PS Tony Khatri, Rachita’s partner.
