Maimie McCoy will be absent from some of The Musketeers series 3

19 May 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Big news for fans of The Musketeers - Maimie McCoy will not appear in the opening episodes of series three.

McCoy is pregnant and so is currently unable to reprise her role of Milady on the BBC drama.

However, a BBC spokesperson has confirmed to Digital Spy that the actress is in talks to return to the show at a later date.

"We are delighted for Maimie and wish her well through her pregnancy," they said. "We very much hope she may come back as Milady in the latter half of series 3 and are in discussions with her to that effect."

It is currently unclear how many episodes McCoy will miss as a result of her pregnancy.

Rupert Everett and Matthew McNulty will join The Musketeers for its third series, playing a pair of new villains.

The pair will appear alongside returning cast members Luke Pasqualino, Tom Burke, Howard Charles, »

The Musketeers: showrunner quits before series 3

17 April 2015 5:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The BBC’s The Musketeers will have to cope without its showrunner Adrian Hodges for its already-confirmed third series…

Here’s an interesting one – Adrian Hodges, creator and showrunner for the BBC’s The Musketeers, won't be signing on for the third series.

A third run for the family-friendly historical action drama has already been confirmed by the BBC (we can expect it early next year, if previous broadcast dates are anything to go by), but Hodges has ruled himself out for a return.

Our friends at Geek Syndicate got the scoop on the matter, with a quote from the man himself explaining his reason for leaving his own show:

“I just felt that after the last season I was totally knackered. I love the show but it had been a very intensive two…well four years really and what I didn’t want to go was go straight into developing a new season. »

The Musketeers: Adrian Hodges exits as showrunner ahead of series 3

17 April 2015 3:27 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Musketeers creator Adrian Hodges has stepped down as showrunner ahead of the upcoming third series.

Hodges adapted Alexandre Dumas's novel for BBC One, but revealed to Geek Syndicate that he will not be back for the next run.

"I just felt that after the last season I was totally knackered," he said. "I love the show but it had been a very intensive two... well, four years really - and what I didn't want to do was go straight into developing a new season. I just didn't quite have the energy to do that."

BBC One was able to recommission The Musketeers thanks to financial backing from BBC Worldwide and BBC America, who also contributed to the first two series.

"The Musketeers has delighted audiences at home and around the world and we're thrilled that we've been able to financially support bringing a third series to the BBC, »

The Musketeers series 2 episode 5 review: The Return

13 February 2015 12:05 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Musketeers return after being pushed aside by international sporting events, with another pleasingly strong episode...

This review contains spoilers.

2.5 The Return

The Musketeers returns to our screens having endured another week of sporting interruptions, and it returns with a flourish. The Return is yet another strong episode, but that wasn’t all, as it also came accompanied by news of a series renewal. Yes, our favourite French swordsmen will be back on our screens next year for another season of derring-do. Despite the high quality we’ve seen from this series so far, jitters following the Beeb’s cancellation of Atlantis coupled with their scheduling of The Musketeers away from that prime Sunday evening slot had made renewal feel less than inevitable. Let’s hope the strength of the show won through and clinched the deal, if for no other reason than an acknowledgement of the stronger direction The Musketeers has gone in, »

The Musketeers renewed for series 3

5 February 2015 1:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The BBC has ordered a third series of Adrian Hodges The Musketeers, which is due to start filming in April 2015...

The Musketeers, as our series two reviews show, has been going from strength to strength (despite a messy Friday night schedule for these past few weeks due to football, and now rugby).

It may have lost Peter Capaldi to Doctor Who, but Marc Warren's villainous Rochefort is beginning to fill those antagonist shoes nicely. The rest of the cast too, from leads Luke Pasqualino, Tom Burke, Howard Charles and Santiago Cabrera to supporting castmembers Ryan Gage, Tamla Kari, Maimie McCoy and Alexandra Dowling, have shaped up into a fine squad.

News of the show's third series renewal then, as announced at the start of this week by BBC Worldwide and BBC America (The Musketeers is partly financed, and goes out, internationally), comes as welcome indeed.

The Musketeers to return for third series on BBC One

2 February 2015 6:31 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The show's recommissioning was made possible by financial backing from BBC Worldwide and BBC America, who also contributed to the first two series.

Maimie McCoy talks The Musketeers: 'Don't call Milady a bad girl'

The Musketeers series 2 episode 3 review: The Good Traitor

15 January 2015 5:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Musketeers' winning streak continues this week, but is the supporting cast starting to eclipse the Musketeers themselves?

This review contains spoilers.

2.3 The Good Traitor

Last week’s An Ordinary Man brought excitement and danger through some strong writing and performances, and could certainly be considered up there with the best the series has had to offer. It was a good example of how a Musketeers’ story can be told that reflects the excitement and adventure of the source material but in a manner that modern audiences would enjoy – exactly what we’ve been wanting from this adaptation. The question was of course – is this a one-off? Have they peaked early ? Well, in The Good Traitor the cast and writers have done an excellent job of picking up where An Ordinary Man left off – certainly being the equal in writing, performance and direction.

On the surface, there is a »

The Musketeers series 2 episode 2 review: An Ordinary Man

8 January 2015 6:15 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Musketeers' honour comes into conflict with their duty in this week's impressive and entertaining episode...

This review contains spoilers.

2.2 An Ordinary Man

Directed by John Strictland (from last week’s Keep Your Friends Close) and written by Pete McKenna (who also wrote the first series episode, Knight Takes Queen), An Ordinary Man is a step-up from last week’s so-so season opener bringing some much needed thrills and depth whilst also seeing the return of a first season favourite, Milady. 

Somewhat surprisingly given her importance to last season’s overarching storyline, An Ordinary Man isn’t Milady’s story. It is however the King’s, who so often is given to being either the comic relief or simply a convenient character to order the Musketeers to go off on their adventures. I think Ryan Gage has done a great job of making his King Louis child-like but with »

The Musketeers series 2 episode 1 review: Keep Your Friends Close

2 January 2015 6:09 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Peter Capaldi otherwise engaged, The Musketeers welcomes Marc Warren as its series two villain. How does the show fare on its return?

This review contains spoilers.

2.1 Keep Your Friends Close

So The Musketeers return for another 10 episode run, albeit switched from a Sunday to an unusual Friday night slot (which I can’t help feeling is something of a dump from the Beeb as the Sunday slot seemed much more appropriate and higher profile). The first season saw some highs, some lows and too many middles but was sufficiently entertaining to deserve another go-around. Indeed, as I sat down to watch Keep Your Friends Close it was certainly with a sense of optimism, as unencumbered with having to perform the necessary back stories the second season should zip along with stories focused on the team, action and the humour. At least that’s the theory.
