All eight episodes of season three of Sky Original Britannia will drop on Sky Atlantic and streaming service Now August 24 2021.
The trippy, violent and thoroughly entertaining period drama featuring invading Romans, Celtic tribes and spaced-out druids, stars David Morrissey, Mackenzie Crook, Sophie Okonedo, Annabel Scholey, Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Eleanor Worthington-Cox and Zoë Wanamaker.
According to Sky’s pre-release tease: ‘Series three sees a radical transformation in Cait’s (Worthington-Cox) journey as the Chosen One with a decision that will tie her to the future of her war-torn people and their ravaged land. Aulus (Morrissey) comes under pressure from a new and dark force, otherwise known as his wife (Okonedo), whilst Amena (Scholey) finds herself in a lethal Ménage à trois with both of them. Divis (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) gets a new job which he despises, and Veran goes to the underworld and sees the future.’
It may not be 100 per cent historically accurate, but series three, written by Jez Butterworth, Tom Butterworth and Mackenzie Crook, looks packed with sword-clashing action and ribald humour.
Britannia is produced by Vertigo Films and Neal Street Productions in association with Sky Studios.
The first two series of Britannia are on-demand on Sky Q and Now.
