Sidney Parker has passed away! The long-awaited Season 2 debut of PBS drama Sanditon lost no time revealing his destiny: the fiery Regency gentleman, who was about to propose to Charlotte Heywood until fate interfered at the end of the first season, died of yellow fever while on vacation in Antigua.

Sidney’s funeral opened the program. Charlotte (Rose Williams) was dancing up a storm back home in Willingdon when Sidney’s sister-in-law Mary (Kate Ashfield) informed her of his death.

Viewers have heard for a year that Theo James, who plays Sidney, will not return for the Masterpiece series’ second season. Charlotte and Sidney’s aspirations of living happily ever after were destroyed when he left. Season 1 ended with Sidney agreeing to marry his former fiancée to save his brother from debtor’s prison. But is Sidney’s death necessary?

According to new head writer Justin Young, Sidney’s premature death will echo throughout the season, who spoke at a Television Critics Association conference in January. He continued, “It provided us this huge emotional moment at the opening of the [season] that wants to set up all the tales.” “In a way, the season became about how everyone goes on from it.”

It didn’t seem feasible to bring in a fresh actor to portray the part. “We couldn’t recast since that would have jeopardized the world’s integrity,” Young explained. “It would have been absurd.” We felt we wanted to make it apparent to the audience straight away that he’s not coming back, even if [Charlotte] hopes he will. We wanted to let the audience grieve alongside Charlotte.”

Another PBS show, Downton Abbey, dealt with the exits of two popular characters, Dan Stevens’ Matthew Crawley and Jessica Brown Findlay’s Lady Sybil Branson, when their actors wished to quit the show: by murdering them and illustrating how their fellow humans dealt with their loss.

So, how did Sidney pass away? Sidney suffered yellow fever and died in Antigua after marrying Eliza Campion (Ruth Kearney) for her fortune. 

How did leading lady Charlotte Heywood (Rose Williams) find out about it? While dancing at a reception in her hometown, she received the devastating news. That’ll ruin the celebration. 

Sanditon’s second season renewal occurred over two years after its first cancellation at ITV (Sanditon’s original network). Theo had booked HBO’s TV version of The Time Traveler’s Wife during that time. Even still, we were hoping for a quick reappearance for the actor until Sanditon Season 2 spoilers dropped. 

Due to a three-month time shift, Season 2 of Sanditon is already continuing along without Sidney. And it appears like Masterpiece PBS is keeping its promise made in May that the Sanditon heroine will have “plenty of romance.” In the premiere, Colonel Francis Lennox (Tom Weston-Jones) and Alexander Colbourne (Ben Lloyd-Hughes) were introduced as prospective suitors for Charlotte.

  3. I completely agree with all the other post that Theo James is the reason him and Charlotte I became interested in the show they were great together and to lose him as the main one of the main characters was also I didn’t even watch the second season because of that their chemistry was amazing and I wish that PDS would bring him back somehow for Charlotte at least as as is everyone else and give him a proper departure if he’s going to leave.

    1. Yes I was thoroughly disappointed and did not want to watch the second season at all due to the fact that Theo is Charlotte we’re not going to be together. Their chemistry was amazing.

I agree with everyone else’s comments
