There's some interesting news, exciting 'Sanditon' fans on Twitter. Could fans finally see season 2? Read all about the updates here.

Is ‘Sanditon’ season 2 finally happening? This new clue says yes

Fans were outraged when ITV canceled Sanditon ahead of season 2. The show had a meager following when it initially aired on the channel, but when it reached international audiences, including the U.S., it exploded. The showed seemed dormant, but a recent Twitter suggests otherwise. 

After Sanditon’s cancellation, a #SaveSanditon community popped up on Twitter. Fans have been vocal about wanting a second season, giving a proper ending to Jane Austen’s unfinished story. It only seems fitting that Twitter sleuth might have put together an upcoming second season. 

Fans would freak out if Sanditon got a second season. It’s been one long year for fans, and it seems the turmoil could come to an end. Nothing is confirmed yet, but the new Sanditon revelations show is moving in the right direction.  

What is Sanditon?

Sanditon is an unfinished manuscript by Jane Austen, the original author behind Emma., Pride and Prejudice, and Sense and Sensibility. Austen never finished the book before her death. Much of the eleven chapters Austen wrote before her death were used in the first episode, leaving most of the story up to Andrew Davies, Sanditon’s creator and writer. 

The show received a lukewarm response as its racy scenes shocked Jane Austen fans.  The author’s fans also criticized the show’s season finale, calling it “un-Austen-like.” Many fans pointed out how Austen’s endings are usually happy. She’s known for wrapping up her characters in neat little bows and with happily ever afters. Despite fan criticism, it received a 62% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes and a 95% from audiences. 

Even though ITV advertised the show as an eight-episode limited series, it didn’t stop fans from demanding a second season. Fans took the “un-Austen-like” ending to Davies writing with season 2 in mind. 

The tweet

Twitter user uksk05 posted a screenshot from Companies House, a UK government agency that makes company information public. The image comes from Red Planet Limited’s page with a new update. The company added “(Sanditon 2)” to its name. 

Even though fans aren’t going crazy over the new tweet, it might be because they don’t understand what the news means. Even one fan asked for someone to explain the tweet like they were five. The tweet doesn’t confirm anything but does raise questions about the production company behind season 1. 

Red Planet is the production company behind Sanditon, and the change has fans thinking the production company is gearing up for Sanditon season 2. There haven’t been any updates about returning to Sanditon on the company’s website. However, the name change could mean they’re putting all their energy into the second season. It leaves one question: who is ordering season 2?

Who’s picking up where ITV left off?

Twitter has been a wealth of information about Sanditon season 2. Amazon has not said either way, but Amazon Prime Video UK opened Pandora’s box asking fans to retweet to show Amazon Executives a demand for season 2. To date, there are over 20,000 retweets and 2,000 comments. 

Again there has been no update from Amazon either way. However, the PBS Prime Video Channel is the streaming home for Sanditon. It does show that Amazon is in on the show and might want to further the story. Amazon is looking for a show similar to Netflix’s Bridgerton. Netflix’s show is dominating in the genre, leaving others searching for another show set in London’s Regency era. 

Do you think Sanditon is getting ready for Season 2? How excited are you for season 2? Let us know what you’re hoping forward to in season 2 in the comments.

  • This is one of the best shows I have seen recently, do I dare say it is better than Bridgerton?! Ok, less sex scenes but who needs them when you have such a great twist of relationship drama! The storyline is so wonderfully Jane Austen and it is just not finished with the way the season ended. It made me feel for Charlotte, her character and her ability to forgive, I am deeply upset for her. I have never had a show impact me like this before! Please, please, help all the fans and Ms. Austen by completing the story for her. It’s just the right thing to do!

  • I’m so sick of cancelations…. ratings…. . Now another without a happy ending. We need happy endings, all of us. Fix this!

  • Sanditon is 1,000 times better than Bridgerton. It’s Jane Austen and nothing compares to Jane Austen, nothing. I understand perhaps a second season may be difficult for all sorts of reasons, but I desperately urge the producers to consider making a 2 hour episode and wrap up an ending it deserves. As a true tribute to Jane Austen and her loyal fans around the world.

  • Please give us more of this lovely period drama. There must be a better ending. Just binge watched the eight episodes and seriously need more. I too think it’s better than Bridgestone. .

  • Please!!!!! We need Season 2 of Sanditon, we need a happy ending!!!!

    February 21, 2021
  • I watched it on US television twice and loved it each time. Hope it gets a fitting resolution.

  • Season 2 of Sanditon MUST happen! #season2sanditonnow

    February 22, 2021
  • We have to have a season 2 of Sanditon. The story can’t end this way; we need more.

    February 23, 2021
  • I have watched Sanditon twice on PBS here in the States and I have the DVD, but for the life of me I cannot seem to get a different finale no matter how many times I watch, there’s obviously a glitch because no one with a heart would leave Sidlotte’s relationship hanging like that. Andrew Daviess, I’m ashamed of you! In all seriousness, this is simply one of the best series I’ve watched in a long time, the casting was spot on, the story is engrossing, please give us a season 2.

    February 24, 2021
  • This series has captured my heart. The acting is top notch and I feel like charlotte and Sydney deserve a shot at happiness or at least to settle their heartache. . This whole cast is wonderful and I wish there was a way to have more than just one more season. IM HOOKED!!!!I want to see what happens with Mr. STRINGER , AND Ms. Lam and and and and!!!!

    I have watched Brigerton as well and this is just so much more well acted. No disrespect meant toward the other show but this has more believable romance and realistic anguish. I must know how things progress for everyone.

    February 25, 2021
  • Yes I just watched it again – love it ! I am also hanging for the happy ending! I really enjoyed Sanditon and would love a Season 2 please!!!!! I also enjoyed Bridgerton – that is way more raunchy! But there is nothing like the classic Jane Austin. Ive watched Pride and Prejudice a million times. lol.

    February 26, 2021
  • Please give us a Sanditon 2, its cruel to leave us wanting more, its such a good series. We need some good news, we need Sanditon 2.

    February 26, 2021
  • Please consider Season 2 for Sanditon. The storyline was great and the acting was superb. Don’t leave us hanging?

    February 27, 2021
  • Yes to season 2, honestly, what would Jane Austen think of this ending? Would she really end it like that? It feels like I am half way through the book. Please have fun exploring this potential story and give us season 2

    February 27, 2021
  • Is the reason for not completing Sanditon because the producers considered the initial size of its viewers too small? This would have been in the pre-pandemic world. Times have deeply changed! Audience interest in the Regency era and themes is at an all-time high now.
    TV producers want high ratings? I predict a second season to complete Sanditon would generate perhaps the highest ratings for any series next year. A win- win for everyone!!
