Grab a hankie because season three of Sanditon will be the last of this achingly romantic period drama. Based on Jane Austen’s unfinished final novel, of which only a dozen chapters were written before her death in 1817, Andrew Davies – the writer behind the iconic BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice – expanded on the story of the bustling seaside town of Sanditon and its citizens.

After a chance encounter brings Charlotte (Rose Williams) into the orbit of the entrepreneurial Tom Parker (Kris Marshall), she’s welcomed to stay in the town of Sanditon. Seeking adventure, she becomes familiar with its residents, learns about their scandalous pasts, and navigates more than a few swoon-worthy romances.

"I shall never fall in love. It seems like a beastly business" a young Leo observes in the latest season's trailer. Indeed, matters of the heart are once more the main source of conflict. 

A lavish birthday celebration for Georgina (Crystal Clarke) sees Charlotte back in Sanditon, arm-in-arm with new fiancé Ralph (Cai Brigden). Yet she’s clearly more in love with the taciturn Alexander (Ben Lloyd-Hughes). But will he let her know he feels the same before it’s too late?

The final episode of Sanditon season 3 airs this Sunday, April 23, on PBS. The preview reads: "Charlotte wants to tell Colbourne the truth about her feelings, but a shocking revelation stops her in her tracks. Georgiana's worst fears come true when she realises she has been abandoned."

Want to see how it all ends? Our guide below explains how to watch Sanditon season 3 online and enjoy a FREE stream of the final season from anywhere.
