Watch the Trailer Full 'Sanditon' Season 1 Episode 1 Premiere 2019 - Jane Austen’s Novel

Sanditon Season 1 Episode 1 - Episode 1 Airdate: 2019-Aug-25 Episode summary: A chance accident brings Charlotte Heywood to Sanditon, a seaside resort on the cusp of dramatic change.

Written only months before Jane Austen's death in 1817, Sanditon tells the story of the impulsive, spirited and unconventional Charlotte Heywood, played by Williams, and her spiky relationship with the charming Sidney Parker, played by James. When a chance accident transports her from her rural hometown of Willingden to a would-be coastal resort, it exposes Charlotte to the intrigues and dalliances of a seaside town on the make. The drama takes viewers from the West Indies to the rotting alleys of London and exposes the hidden agendas of each character and sees Charlotte discover herself and ultimately find love.

Jane Austen’s final, unfinished novel Sanditon is heading to the small screen, courtesy of PBS’ Masterpiece and the U.K. network ITV.

This is the first ever adaptation of Austen’s incomplete last work, which she abandoned due to poor health just before her death in 1817. Only eleven chapters exist, but Emmy and BAFTA-winning writer Andrew Davies has expanded the story to fill eight hour-long installments.

Davies is also the man responsible for the – IMO, best – beloved adaptation of Pride and Prejudice that starred Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle, so at least we know Austen’s work is in good hands, even if necessity requires some of its story elements to be made up out of whole cloth.

And now we finally have our first look at the series and its cast in a series of just-released production shots from the show.

Reign’s Rose Williams stars as spirited young heroine Charlotte Heywood, an impulsive, joyous and optimistic girl who leaves her rural hometown of Willingden for the would-be coastal resort of Sanditon. Unfamiliar with the rules of high society, she discovers her confidence shaken, and her run-in with the prickly Sidney Parker does little to boost her self-esteem.

Will she be able to make her way in this world on her own terms, or will she find herself overwhelmed by the many intrigues in the seaside town?
Divergent’s Theo James plays Sidney Parker, a self-made man who often finds his responsibilities to his family and Sanditon tiresome. Humorous, charming and slightly wild, his personality can be somewhat volatile, and he seldom seems the same from one moment to the next. In Charlotte’s company, can Sidney rediscover his true self?
Last Tango in Halifax star Anne Reid plays Lady Denton, a character who almost instantly feels like the Dowager Countess of this series, a woman who has achieved her status through marrying well and expects to be treated with the deference she feels is her due. But there’s more to her character than meets the eye, apparently.
Former Death in Paradise star Kris Marshall is also part of the Sanditon cast, playing Parker family patriarch Tom, an enthusiastic man who firmly believes that Sanditon will one day be the ideal seaside resort. Keen to take risks, he’s willing to do whatever it takes to put the town on the proverbial map. But will his obsession become his ruin? There’s no firm airdate for Sanditon as yet, though rumors insist that a fall ITV broadcast could be in the cards for the show, with a Masterpiece premiere in 2020. Could this be the series that covers Victoria’s timeslot until the queen returns for a fourth season? We’ll have to wait and see. What do you think of the look of Sanditon? Sound like something you would watch? Or would it be best to leave Austen’s unfinished work alone? Let’s discuss in the comments.
