“Premium network EPIX® announced that the third season of Britannia will premiere on January 16, 2022. The epic, action-packed drama, serving thrills and humor in equal measure, was created by the multi-award-winning writers Jez Butterworth, his brother Tom Butterworth and James Richardson.
Season three of Britannia sees a radical transformation in Cait’s (Eleanor Worthington-Cox) journey as the Chosen One with a decision that will tie her to the future of her war-torn people and their ravaged land. Aulus (David Morrissey) comes under pressure from a new and dark force – otherwise known as his wife (Sophie Okonedo), whilst Amena (Annabel Scholey) finds herself in a lethal ménage à trois with both of them. Divis (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) gets a new job which he despises, and Veran goes to the underworld and sees the future.
