The hit show Sanditon returns for season two on BritBox after a three-year forced hiatus. 

The show follows Charlotte Heywood as she moves to the fishing village of Sanditon which hopes to reinvent itself as a seaside resort and see's Charlotte learn the secrets of ambition of the citizens of the village. 

Sanditon is based on the unfinished and final work of author Jane Austen and was originally shown on ITV but after one season got the ax.

But saving the day was streaming service Britbox which has picked up the show and produced its second series which was filmed across Somerset.

Much of the cast returns to the village to add to the story, however one 'heart-throb' has since exited the show.

As Theo James is known for his role in Divergent who played Sidney Parker in the period drama has since hung up his coat. 

James left the show due to filming conflicts with his new show The Time Traveller's Wife, based on the hit book.
