Britannia series 3 comes to Sky Atlantic and Now this August
Sky has announced all eight episodes of the third instalment of Sky Original Britannia will arrive on Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW on Tuesday 24th August 2021.
The series is set in a world of mythic Celtic tribes, psychedelic druids and terrifying Romans; series three will see a young girl try to build a rebel alliance with a group of misfits. There’s a radical transformation in Cait’s (Eleanor 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 (David Morrissey) comes under pressure from a new and dark force — otherwise known as his wife (Sophie Okonedo), whilst Amena (Annabel 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 all sounds like a lot of intrigue for eight episodes for the show created by the multi-award-winning writers Jez Butterworth, his brother Tom Butterworth and James Richardson.
