The hit BBC series ‘The Musketeers,’ which is based on Alexander Dumas classic swashbuckling adventure books has been given a third series by the BBC.
The show’s recommissioning was made possible by financial backing from BBC Worldwide and BBC America, who also contributed to the first two series.
A BBC Worldwide spokesman said: “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, with improved value for the licence fee payer.”
News of the shows renewal first broke via Twitter when director Andy Hay announced new episodes of the series would begin production in Czech Republic from April.
Its second series will resume on Friday, February 13 at 9pm on BBC One. The show airs on Saturdays at 9/8c on BBC America in the US.
