The third and final season of The Musketeers will premiere on BBC One on Saturday May 28th at 9:30pm, it has been announced.
Created by Adrian Hodges, The Musketeers is set on the streets of seventeenth century Paris where law and order is more an idea than reality and follows the three Musketeers: Athos, Aramis and Porthos who are far more than King Louis XIII’s personal bodyguards. They stand resolutely for social justice, for honour, for valour, for love and for the thrill of it. The drama series is being produced by BBC Drama Productions in association with BBC Worldwide & BBC America and stars Luke Pasqualino, Tom Burke, Santiago Cabrera and Howard Charles.
In the show’s final season, a war-torn Paris has become a powder keg ready to explode. Refugees have flocked to the city in search of sanctuary, but the city’s governor, Phillipe Feron, is only too happy to exploit the crisis for his own ends. Minister Treville’s repeated attempts to draw the King’s gaze to the crisis unfolding all around him have failed, but when the Musketeers briefly return from the war, he sees an opportunity. Ordered to the heart of this simmering urban precinct, the Musketeers are charged with preventing catastrophe, but they still have their own battles to fight.
