The second season of Sanditon is now on ITV, and our heroine, Charlotte Heywood, and this time also her sister have more romantic adventures. At one point, it seemed like the costume drama wouldn’t be back, but then it was announced that it would be back. And once again, the show is a lot of fun.
Some people said that the first series “sexed up” Jane Austen’s unfinished novel, but some of the cast defended the saucy parts, and viewers loved it! The second season was made by MASTERPIECE in the United States and BritBox in the United Kingdom. It has already been broadcast on these services, so it is now going to ITV.

What’s the Story of Season 2 of Sanditon?
Well, there’s a lot of love around! “Fans who want romance and a break will find a lot of it in the new season of Sanditon, with its interesting characters and captivating storylines,” said MASTERPIECE Executive Producer Susanne Simpson before the show aired.
Once again, the story is about Charlotte Heywood, who will soon be courted by two men. Georgina, on the other hand, “wants to make her own identity and gets into trouble in the name of love… but will she end up being even more lonely than before?” Also, the army’s coming makes it possible for more people to fall in love.
Charlotte becomes Augusta Wilson’s (Eloise Webb), Alexander Colbourne’s niece and ward, and causes Charlotte a lot of trouble as her governess. Also, the producers said, “Tom Parker (Kris Marshall) tries to rebuild Sanditon, but he faces many problems he didn’t expect. Meanwhile, the dysfunctional Denham family’s secrets and lies continue to shake the sunny seaside town to its core.”
Review of Sanditon Season 2
In terms of Sanditon season 2, I have mixed feelings. I waited until the end of the season to write my full review so that I could openly analyze what transpired and offer my thoughts on the season as a whole. But first, let’s look at the new season’s story and new characters.
Is There a Trailer Available?
A trailer has been released, and it looks every bit as lavish as the first season. “I adore Sanditon and its inhabitants,” Charlotte states in the short film. “Love is not as simple as you seem to think…” she concludes. Charlotte’s situation is far from straightforward.
