The 2020 season of Masterpiece will feature the first-ever television adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sanditon. This eight-part mini-series follows the story of Charlotte Heywood, an impulsive and energetic young woman who finds herself thrust into the world of a high society sea resort. Forced to make her own way in this new world, Charlotte encounters many intriguing characters — some of whose own motivations for taking up residence in the formerly sleepy town are suspect. As Charlotte questions her ability to adapt in this new society, she finds herself falling for Sidney Parker, a self-made man who also finds himself at odds with his new town. Written by Andrew Davies (Pride and Prejudice, Les Misérables, Mr. Selfridge), the series features the acting talents of Rose Williams, Theo James, Kris Marshall and Anne Reid. See the first images of Masterpiece's Sanditon below, and take part in the intrigue, romance and excitement when the series airs in fall 2019.
