At the end of the third season, we are left with a cliffhanger and the show has been well-received so far.
Britannia is a historical fantasy drama set in 43 AD when the Romans invaded Britain. It was created by Jez Butterworth and Tom Butterworth as the first co-production between Sky and Amazon Prime Video back in 2018. The show has received a mostly positive response for managing to blend historical events with fantasy to create an interesting TV show.
The first season aired on Sky Atlantic and on Amazon Prime Video in January 2018. It was renewed for two more seasons following this. At the time of the renewal of the third season, Jez Butterworth had stated, "We’re very excited to be continuing our mythic journey through Ancient Britain. This year was a particularly good vintage for mushrooms here in the West Country, so we strongly suggest you hold on to your hats."
But what is in store for the future of the show? Find out here:
The third season of the show premiered in September 2021. Amazon stepped back from the project after the first season and the second season only became available to stream on the platform recently. The show has been well-received by viewers. But there has been no mention of whether the show will be coming back for another season yet. But there is still a lot of history left for the show creators to cover. "Well, the Romans stayed [in Britain] for 400 hundred years so you’ve got a lot of material there and we’re only a couple of years into the invasion, so who knows?" Mackenzie Crook who plays the Druid Veran and Harka told Radio Times. “I think the Druids were wiped out in a big battle in maybe AD60, around 20 years after the invasion[…] so if I can keep hold of the [Druid] leadership I’ve got a couple of series left in me.”
At the end of the third season, we are left with a cliffhanger. Cait has a vision of Veran and another druid. She then comes to Rome to meet Lucius who is murdered after he tells her everything he knows about the spear. The traitor is revealed and the season ended with Cait being delivered to Aulus.
There are several revelations made in the third season. But there are various questions left unanswered which could be the premise of the fourth season. The story may mostly take place in Rome in the next season. But there is a possibility that in season four Cait may instigate the downfall of Rome by introducing Christianity. She may also discover the Spear and release Lokka from her body.
David Morrissey as Aulus Plautius and Eleanor Worthington Cox as Cait will surely be coming back to the next season and will be joined by Zoë Wanamaker as Queen Antedia, Julian Rhind-Tutt as Phelan, Mackenzie Crook as Veran, and Annabel Scholey as Amena. On the other hand, Hugo Speer as Lucius and Sophie Okonedo as Hemple will most likely not be coming back. We may also see some new faces according to how the plot develops.
The third season was confirmed in 2020 and released in the fall of 2021. The show has not been confirmed to be coming back for a new season yet. If it is confirmed to be back soon, we can expect that it will be premiering in early 2023.
