There’s good news and bad news for Jamestown fans…
The period drama series returns tonight at 9pm on Sky One.
However, it’s now been confirmed that the third season will be the show’s last.
Written and created by Bill Gallagher (Lark Rise to Candleford, The Paradise), the series is made by the producers of Downton Abbey.
Jamestown launched in May 2017 and follows the first English settlers as they establish a community in 17th century America.
Watch the Season 3 trailer:
The official synopsis for Season 3 reads: “With trade booming and the tobacco farms established, the settlers’ pioneering aspiration soon clashes with reality as they begin to strive for more than new lives – now they crave control and power.
“The flourishing community creates new tensions between the English and the Pamunkey, and with politics rife in the air, the idealism of the New World is tested.
“As Yeardley’s thirst for power grows, can he handle the consequences? And how far will Opechancanough go to protect his native land?”
Regular cast members Max Beesley (Henry), Sophie Rundle (Alice), Naomi Battrick (Jocelyn), Jason Flemyng (Yeardley) and Niamh Walsh (Verity) are all back in the new episodes, with actor Ben Batt (Shameless) joining as enigmatic trader Willmus Crabtree.
The new season began filming near Budapest in Hungary last summer
Jamestown is available to watch now on Amazon Prime.
