PBS Boss and CEO Paula Kerger indicated that spectators could see their favourite show return on screens by January 2022 although a specific release date wasn’t provided.
Kerger added: “There is this wonderful window right after the holidays when people are exhausted. The days are shorter. At least, the light is shorter. And these shows have just done extraordinarily well in that period, which is why we schedule them the way that we do.”
In July, production for the second season of Sanditon started. PBS also announced that the show has been renewed for seasons 2 and 3 after axing by UK broadcaster ITV.
