Sneak Peek at Season Three of BBC America's "Robin Hood"

Looking to return to Sherwood Forest?

You're in luck as BBC America brings you the third and final season of Robin Hood, slated to begin Saturday, September 12th at 9 pm ET/PT.

According to BBC America's press release, Season Three finds Robin a vengeful man following the death of his true love, Maid Marian: "Season three kicks off when Robin and his gang of outlaws return from the Holy Land. But now that he’s back, Robin wastes no time - Marian's murderer, Guy of Gisborne (Armitage), is a marked man. Robin immediately breaks with his followers, and races to Locksley Manor to avenge her death. Once there, he confronts Gisborne but does Gisborne care if he lives or dies? After all, Marian was the only woman he loved and his only hope."

A two-minute clip from the third season opener, along with more information about the new season, can be found below.

Robin Hood Season Three Preview:



Toby Stephens (Die Another Day, Jane Eyre) and David Harewood (The Vice, The Palace) join the cast of Jonas Armstrong (Teachers, The Ghost Squad), Richard Armitage (MI-5, North & South), and Keith Allen (Bodies, The Others) as Robin continues to outwit the dastardly Sheriff and his forces—but Robin’s not the same crusader he once was. Since the death of Marian, Robin’s in a downward spiral fuelled by anger and grief - he can think of nothing but revenge. Meanwhile, a wave of corruption and evil has been sweeping the land. Luckily, a mysterious new ally in the form of a traveling monk, Tuck (Harewood) arrives just in time to get the hooded hero back on track.

Season three kicks off when Robin and his gang of outlaws return from the Holy Land. But now that he’s back, Robin wastes no time - Marian's murderer, Guy of Gisborne (Armitage), is a marked man. Robin immediately breaks with his followers, and races to Locksley Manor to avenge her death. Once there, he confronts Gisborne but does Gisborne care if he lives or dies? After all, Marian was the only woman he loved and his only hope.

Armstrong talks about the darker, tougher Robin Hood, hell bent on avenging his wife's tragic end, “Robin’s back from the Holy Land but without Marian, the beat of his life. He’s questioning everything he ever lived for. Now it’s pay back time, and he’s become obsessed with killing Gisborne. It’s great to bring Robin back a darker, more mature hero and fans will see that once he’s come to terms with his personal loss, he’s a stronger more powerful force than ever before.”

Meanwhile, the wickedness of the Sheriff (Allen) continues unabated - he’s sold the local men to fight a foreign war. When a feisty Locksley girl, Kate (Joanne Froggatt, Life On Mars), objects to her brother’s forced conscription, she inadvertently gets caught up in the cause of Robin Hood and becomes an indispensable member of the gang.

The third season also brings an unexpected addition when Gisborne's little sister, Isabella (Lara Pulver), unexpectedly arrives to further complicate the lives of both Robin and Gisborne. And, as the threat of Prince John (Stephens) looms larger, Robin and Gisborne reach an uneasy truce. They soon realize they may have more in common than they thought.

Season Three of Robin Hood launches Saturday, September 12th at 9 pm ET/PT on BBC America.

I wanted to like this but it felt very cheesy and, well, too Americanized for my taste.

Americanized? It was made by, written by, produced by Brits. I'm not at all sure what you mean, Hammond.

Personally, after the "finale" of season 2, there weren't too many good places this story could go, but I love the new look.

Why are there so many Guy/Richard Armitage videos? The show is called "Robin Hood," and it STARS Jonas Armstrong; how about some vids of him w/Marian, HIS love and eventual wife, KILLED in this version by Guy!
Taezar said…
Best part about Season Three is that Robin cut his hair. First season was great, second so so and this, well it just feels forced.

I want to watch season 3, I'm a huge fan of the first two... but I'm no longer interested. There should be curiosity about what will Robin do? What will Nottingham be like now... but the story's run and jumped off a cliff and I'll just choose to stand at the top and remember it as the first two seasons.

It took me a while to be interested in season 3. After the end of seeason 2 and Marion's death it was like "what's the point?". It takes the season almost 1/3 to find its legs, but then things really get interesting! The final episodes are a fitting finale to the series! (although I wished it could have gone on longer!)

Finally Season 3 arrives in the US! It will be interesting to see where RH goes without Marian, as she seems to be present and a motivation in all other RH lore, written or other. But what's with the new Gisbourne do? Hippie or Yeti? The level of anger and testosterone is certainly up a notch or five...
Fan in the US said…
How can I find Season 3 (or any of the seasons in fact) on tv in the US? I rebted the first two seasons on Netflicks and became hooked. But when I hear of people here in the US watching Season 3 I wonder how they do it??? What station etc? Any ideas? I can't wait for Season 3 to come out on Netflicks!!

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous seas
