What’s going on with the ‘Sanditon’ cast lately? Everything to know

Fans of Sanditon aren’t ready to relinquish the show to the list of unfair cancellations, and neither are the people who have made the show. Writers, producers, and even the actors have all said they’d love to see the show get another season, so that the story isn’t left with such a sadistically heart-wrenching end.

Many of members of the cast and crew who have worked on the show have even taken part in Sanditon Twitter events – either live tweeting during a watch party or answering questions. The latest answerer of questions was writer Justin Young. 

Young helped bring the characters to life and the fans had a litany of questions for him – luckily he had answers. There are dozens of tweets available for perusal, but we thought we’d go ahead and share some of our favorites right here.

About the beach art

One of the Sanditon Sisterhood’s most impressive efforts so far has been employing an actual artist to create a wonderful beach mural on one of the beaches the cast and crew used for filming.

Much to everyone’s delight Justin Young has assured fans that the mural was great publicity.

The making of the show

Stories are hard and historical fiction requires research; Young sheds some light on how Sanditon approached not only historical fiction, but the fact this was a partially written Jane Austen novel.

Dizzying writing

Filming out of order feels like one thing – you can always check the scripts to see where you are in the timeline – writing out of order though? That seems like an impressive skill as far as we’re concerned.

Options on the table

Of course the one thing on all Sanditon fans’ minds is whether or not we’ll ever get to see more of the show. Justin Young assures everyone that no options are off the table yet and that while it isn’t something he has control over, there haven’t been any decisions made yet. Which is sad, but it also means there haven’t been any rejections yet. He also later says he would “absolutely” love to see Sanditon return for a second season because he “hate[s] to leave a job unfinished”.

Fans spot everything

Well see, we hadn’t noticed, but now we won’t be able to stop thinking about it.

Just great advice

We love this tweet because while it isn’t necessarily super Sanditon related – though it does shed light on why the cast of characters are so complicated & interesting – this tweet is just great writing advice.

Plans made but not in motion

This tweet gave us a thrill, because despite the show not yet being saved it really shows that the creators don’t want to give up yet either and that is great news.

Overtaken by the mood

This tweet spoke to our little shipper hearts. We had always kind of thought Sidney had taken her out of the way on purpose to kiss her – but taking her out of the way merely to spend time with Charlotte and then realizing “oh no I’m going to kiss her” is honestly even better than we originally thought.

Another bit of hope

We can’t help but indulge ourselves with all the little bits of hope Justin Young provided us. We love insights into the show’s making and the story itself, but this is what has us clapping in front of our computer screens.

Why did Sidlotte start on the wrong foot?

We kind of figured it was something like this, but to have the words to explain this incredibly awkward scene is very useful. The fact Charlotte goes off on Sidney’s family right in front of him – after just meeting – would probably astound most people even today. While Sidney is the “rough around the edges” character, it doesn’t mean Charlotte is perfect – that’s what makes them both such great characters.

Dancing and boating

We love this little insight into two of the most iconic Sidlotte scenes we have – now we have to go rewatch them.

Writing until your fingers bleed

We thought seven drafts were quite a few, but twenty-five drafts for a single episode of Sanditon?! It just shows how much love, attention, and care went into creating this show.

  • I am a lover of Sanditon! I will continue to fight for season 2 every day. I have never been so taken with a show before as I am with Sanditon. Everything is absolutely brilliant! I am mesmerized by the story writing, cast, costumes, music, location and chemistry. I don’t recall ever seeing a show or film to make me laugh and weep! The last episode absolutely gutted me! I have rewatched season 7 times. I am still completely devastated at end. I sob and sob! Please please give us Season 2! Huge thank you to everyone involved 💗

  • I loved watching Sandition Charlotte and her wonderful but naive ways and Sydney reaching for the finer things in life to no avail but two people can always come to see each other in a different light love comes in many ways a beautiful story that deserves a more fitting ending

  • I’d love to see a season two to finish the story. I love this Jane Austin story because she wrote about entrepreneurs and had a black character for the first time. She was starting to notice different things in society. It was too bad she passed away way too soon.

  • That’s for keeping our hopes alive for S2.

  • Please bring this wonderful story back to us. If you don’t write for the fans what’s the point really. There are so many shows that are cancelled but this one deserves another season while there’s appreciation from fans and the actors are willing to grace us with another season soon already….it was fabulous…so what are you waiting for?

  • Please give us another season of Sandition. The charter’s are so real You just can’t leave us hanging on to see if Sidney and Charlotte will end up together or apart. You can tell he loves her but he is torn between helping his brother or his feelings toward Charlotte. Everyone played their part percisly. Thank you so much for the wonderful story. Love It,!! 💖👍👏

  • Austen has never failed to unite the hero and heroine by the end of her novel. To finish her novel in historical fashion is necessary. The intertwined story lines open several different avenues to that end. Please you must allow us a Jane Austin ending and develop those storylines in true Austin Form.

  • I need to know where the pressure is being applied to get a second season of Sanditon made There have been postings since October 13th Are amazon and netflix still considering a second season and what do we need to do to apply pressure and to whom?
