‘The Musketeers’ season 3 will be the last on BBC One

BBC One -When you’ve got a show like “The Musketeers,” you have to know that there is probably only so long the story can last. How do you realistically explain how some of these characters would be in constant harm’s way for seven or eight seasons? Sooner or later, the law of averages would just dictate that someone was going to die in horrific fashion. If that happens, then the series turns rather depressing in the blink of an eye.

In some ways, it’s remarkable that the show remained compelling after fears that losing Peter Capaldi to “Doctor Who” would be a serious blow.

In a statement to Digital Spy, executive producer Jessica Pope revealed that the third season premiering later this year on BBC One would be the last for the show. Here’s what she had to say:

“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.

“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.”

We have all of the faith in the world that this show is going to go out with some serious fireworks, and we’ll be there to cover it whenever it does launch. The BBC as a whole tends to be rather cagey in announcing premiere dates until the very last moment, but when that is announced, we will have it for you.
