‘The Musketeers’ has been axed

Posted Filed under

It’s been confirmed today that the third season The Musketeers will be the last.

The third season began filming in April last year and DS has revealed that the action-adventure drama’s story will conclude with these final ten episodes.

Executive producer Jessica Pope commented: “Season 3 of The Musketeers completes this 30-hour series with ambition and energy. It is packed with action and adventure, fun and drama from the very first opening seconds of episode one to the very end.

She teased: “It is a season that will delight its fans and pay off everything they have come to love about the show. Bigger in scale and more serialised than before, it has been real privilege and a joy to produce such a fabulous piece of entertainment for the BBC.”
