The Musketeers returns for its third and final series on Saturday the 28th of May with a confident, entertaining opener...
If you're reading this than maybe you, like me, felt a Musketeer-shaped hole in the Beeb’s New Year line-up. Fortunately, there was no need to fear cancellation as it was always going to be a question of ‘when’, not ‘if’ as filming of the forthcoming season had been no secret. The question was, despite the wait, was this season going to be better than the last (which was pretty decent by anyone’s standards) and how were the showrunners going to keep things fresh?
Based on episode one of the new run, I can say with some confidence that the show seems to have grown in all the right ways.
It opens big and picks up from where the last season finished (albeit four years later »
BBC drama “The Musketeers” is heading to Hulu, which has nabbed the exclusive U.S. SVOD rights to every episode of the British series. Under the deal, Season 3 of “The Musketeers” will premiere in the U.S. exclusively on Hulu. All three seasons will be available to stream beginning Saturday, May 14, and Hulu will be the only streaming service with rights to the third (and final) season stateside. The show previously aired on BBC America in the U.S.
“The Musketeers” is set on the streets of seventeenth century Paris, where law and order is more of an idea than a reality. In addition to being King Louis Xiii’s personal bodyguards, Athos (Tom Burke), Aramis (Santiago Cabrera) and Porthos (Howard Charles), joined by D’Artagnan (Luke Pasqualino), stand resolutely for social justice, honor, valor, love — and for the thrill of it.

The BBC won't make any more series of The Musketeers after the third and final ten-episode run, it's been confirmed...
Following creator and showrunner Adrian Hodges' candidly worded departure ("I was totally knackered") from The Musketeers after series two, it's been confirmed that Porthos, Aramis, Athos and D'Artagnan will be hanging up their swords following the third run.
Ten new episodes of the BBC One action and adventure series, due to return to screens shortly, will bring the story to a conclusion. Executive Producer Jessica Pope promises that series three "will delight its fans and pay off everything they have come to love about the show." No chance of a shock-cancellation cliff-hanger there then, at least.
Digital Spy has some goodbye messages from castmembers Luke Pasqualino, Howard Charles, Tom Burke and Santiago Cabrera, all of whom express their thanks to fans and appreciation at having been part of the show. »
From BAFTA-nominated writer Adrian Hodges (My Week with Marilyn) comes an exciting and modern interpretation of Peter Pan; one of the best-loved children’s novels of all time. Starring Golden Globe and Emmy-winning actor Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games, The Devil Wears Prada) as both Captain Hook and Mr Darling, Laura Fraser (Lip Service, Breaking Bad) as Julie and Mrs Darling, and the mesmerising Paloma Faith (Youth) as Tinkerbell, Peter & Wendy mixes fantasy with reality in a narrative based around Great Ormond Street Hospital.
The day before her scheduled heart surgery twelve-year-old Lucy Rose (Hazel Doupe) reads aloud to similarly sick children the original novel of Peter Pan by J.M.Barrie. That night she retires to bed with the images and words of what she has just read still in her head. As she falls asleep her dreams turn in to reality as the classic tale is intertwined with her modern day struggles. »
