Beautiful official ‘Sanditon’ companion book goes behind the scenes

A gorgeous hardback book gives fans an exclusive look at the making of Sanditon.

Based on Jane Austen’s unfinished final novel, the period drama series premiered in 2019.

While the show was initially cancelled in 2020 following its first season, fans were delighted last year when it was announced that Sanditon would return for another two seasons.

The second season of Sanditon begins very soon, so it’s the perfect time to look behind the scenes of Sanditon.

The World of Sanditon: The Official Companion is on sale on Amazon here!

An audiobook version of the book is also available.

Jane Austen’s original 11-chapter manuscript was written only months before her death in 1817.

The story was brought to life on television by Emmy and BAFTA Award winning screenwriter Andrew Davies (Pride & PrejudiceLes Misérables).

The World of Sanditon: The Official Companion contains “everything a fan could want to know.”

It also features a foreword by writer Andrew Davies.

The official synopsis reads: “It explores the world Austen created, along with fascinating insights about the period and the real-life heartbreak behind her final story. And it offers location guides, behind the scenes details, and interviews with the cast, alongside beautiful illustrations and set photography.”

Sanditon returns in the US at 9/8c on Sunday 20th March on Masterpiece on PBS.

Season 2 then premieres in the UK on Monday 21st March on BritBox.

New episodes will each debut weekly over the following month in both the US and the UK.

ITV viewers in the UK can watch the new season on broadcast television later this year.

Masterpiece executive producer Susanne Simpson has said: “Fans who are craving romance and escape will find them in abundance in the new season of Sanditon, with its intriguing characters and captivating storylines.”

Executive producer Belinda Campbell added: “It’s a joy to be returning to the sunshiny shores of Sanditon in the company of such an incredible cast – including some very exciting new faces.”

The third season of Sanditon is expected to follow in 2023.
