The Sky One Original Historical Drama Jamestown returns for a third season this month and we spoke to the cast about what the new season has in store. The show has gained a massive following in its first two seasons, and there’s a third season, the show’s final outing, beginning on Friday, the 26th of April on Sky One and NOW TV. In our first extended interview Luke Roskell, Stuart Martin & Ben Starr talk about the show’s nuanced villains, their take on the show’s final season and how it feels bringing the show to an end.
We also spoke to Naomi Battrick, Niamh Walsh, Abiola Ogunbiyi & Claire Cox about what life will be like for them in Season 3. They talked us Richard Phippen about the closeness on set, and who from the cast is the naughtiest on set. They also talk about the sense of closure, and how they approached the end of the road for their characters, and if they’ll get the resolutions they are seeking.
Jamestown returns for the third and final series on Friday 26 April at 9pm on Sky One and NOW TV.
