Masterpiece All Creatures Great and Small, a PBS show that follows a trio of veterinarians working in the Yorkshire Dales, is one of the most calming and reassuring shows on television. So it’s a huge relief to know that there’s more on the way.
Showrunner Ben Vanstone indicated to media last month, before the show’s season 2 premiere in the UK, that “there’s lots more to come.” When asked about the third season, he stated: “Yes, I believe we are anticipating a third series. That doesn’t come as a surprise to me.”
According to the News Agency, Vanstone also hinted that the concert might last considerably longer than he had intended. When he initially started creating a series based on James Herriot’s works, he imagined it as a four-season program. But now that the show has taken off and taken on a life of its own on television, he’s rethinking, owing in part to the purposefully sluggish pace that fans like.
“I believe that when we first started the program, we had in mind storylines for these characters that would span several episodes.” “He stated. “Initially, it was divided into four series. However, everything in this program moves slower than you may expect. Other shows, I believe, risk the need for more narrative, more action, and more things to happen, but our show is the polar opposite of that. We take our time with everything.”
Masterpiece PBS announced in January that the show had been renewed for two more seasons (season 3 and season 4). According to a press statement, “filming on Season 3 is slated to continue this Spring in the picturesque Yorkshire Dales, with the popular ensemble cast all returning.”
Season 2 of All Creatures Great and Small began in the United Kingdom last year and will run on Masterpiece PBS in the United States starting in January. According to the official description, the new season will put Nicholas Ralph’s James Herriot in a challenging position. “Season two begins with James returning from Glasgow, where he had spent Easter with his parents. While there, he is given a position at a modern local veterinarian clinic and must choose between staying at home with his old parents in Glasgow and returning to his new life in Yorkshire.”
