With the season 2 premiere of “The Musketeers” in Great Britain still quite a ways away (and with the show not even premiering yet in America), this is not the time where you tend to get a whole lot of casting news.
With that in mind, allow us to buck the trend today with at least some casting news. Courtesy of a post on her Twitter account, it has been confirmed that Marianne Oldham of “The Crimson Field” (a show that brought a lot to the table, even if it was a little too short for our liking) is going to be joining the series in some capacity. However, it is currently unclear as to just what sort of role she is going to play.
“The Musketeers” is a show that is certainly used to change and adaptation right now, and much of that stems from the fact that the series lost one of its biggest stars in Peter Capaldi to “Doctor Who” after it filmed the first season. They’ve already brought in Marc Warren (“The Good Wife”) to serve as a new villain, and the series has been filming again for quite some time.
In the end, you are probably going to enjoy this new season at least so long as you enjoyed the first one. It’ll once again have a ton of action sequences, and hopefully the performances are going to live up that season, as well. This is simply to us a fun series that captures some of what we would want with an adaptation of the Dumas work on the small screen; while it is serious, you also still get the same sense of fun you would welcome.
