New York, NY - October 7, 2021 - Premium network EPIX(R) announced that the third season of Britannia will premiere on January 16, 2022.

Britannia is produced by Vertigo Films in association with Neal Street Productions. The series was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Sky's Managing Director of Content with Gabriel Silver as the Executive Producer for the series for Sky Studios. Season three is written by Jez and Tom Butterworth and Mackenzie Crook and produced by Rupert Ryle-Hodges and Matt Carver. Britannia is created by Jez and Tom Butterworth and Vertigo Films' James Richardson who all act as Executive Producers together with Neal Street Production's Nicolas Brown, Pippa Harris and Sam Mendes.
