‘Miss Scarlet and The Duke’ is back: How to watch Season 3 early

The second season of Miss Scarlet and The Duke only just aired, but it’s back already!

The popular period crime drama stars English actress Kate Phillips (Wolf HallThe Crown) as Eliza Scarlet, the fictional first ever female detective in Victorian London.

Set in the 1800s, Miss Scarlet and The Duke has been a hit with American audiences since it debuted on PBS in 2021.

Season 2 premiered in the US in October, and PBS certainly isn’t wasting any time getting the next season out there!

The upcoming adventures will see Phillips return as the fearless Miss Scarlet, alongside Stuart Martin (Jamestown) as Inspector William “The Duke” Wellington.

When does the show return?

It’s been officially confirmed that Season 3 will premiere in the US from 8/7c on Sunday 8th January 2023 on PBS, with the finale airing on Sunday 12th February.

Executive producer Susanne Simpson commented: “With its lighthearted charm and irresistible cast, Miss Scarlet and the Duke quickly won over our audience. We hope viewers will enjoy the pair’s latest exploits by binging on Season 3 during the holidays.”

Over in the UK, Season 3 will air on Alibi in early 2023.

The official synopsis for Season 3 teases: “A disappearing magician, police corruption, a potential life-changing financial windfall, and an explosive season finale — Eliza has her share of fresh and surprising challenges as she struggles to build her detective agency.

“Aside from her vexing cases, Scarlet has to contend with growing competition from a rival agency. And as always, Inspector William Wellington remains Scarlet’s most intractable mystery.

“When a beautiful woman from childhood catches William’s eye, will this signal the end of Miss Scarlet and The Duke’s working relationship?”

Fans will be pleased to hear that a fourth season is sounding likely too!

Miss Scarlet and The Duke is available on DVD on Amazon.
