The epic first trailer for the new season of Britannia has arrived!
Set in 43AD, the British historical fantasy series launched on Sky Atlantic in 2018, and is available in the US on EPIX.
It was officially announced last month that Season 3 will premiere in the UK on Tuesday 24th August.
All eight instalments will be available to stream on NOW TV, and the episodes will also air weekly on Sky Atlantic.
The US premiere date hasn’t yet been confirmed, but the show is expected to return on EPIX.
Joining returning cast members David Morrissey (The Walking Dead), Mackenzie Crook (The Office), Eleanor Worthington-Cox (The Enfield Haunting), and Zoë Wanamaker (Poirot) will be Sophie Okonedo (Death on the Nile) as Aulus’s wife, Hemple.
Co-creator James Richardson previously commented: “Sophie is one of the UK’s greatest actors and we all feel very privileged to have her play our new and particularly malevolent force for series three.
“She is an actor with an enormous range and manages to make you laugh whilst being completely terrifying. A perfect fit for Britannia! We feel very fortunate to be able to continue making such an ambitious show about a time when everything changes.”
Watch the Season 3 trailer:
The official synopsis reads: “Season 3 of Britannia sees a radical transformation in Cait’s (Eleanor Worthington-Cox) journey as the Chosen One with a decision that will tie her to the future of her war-torn people and their ravaged land.
“Aulus (David Morrissey) comes under pressure from a new and dark force – otherwise known as his wife (Sophie Okonedo), whilst Amena (Annabel Scholey) finds herself in a lethal Ménage à trois with both of them.
“Divis (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) gets a new job which he despises, and Veran goes to the underworld and sees the future.”
Britannia is available to watch on Amazon Prime.
