Fans of "The Musketeers" may be disappointed in learning that Season 3 is the last one in the series. However, the showrunners have promised that the series finale will be "extraordinary" and something that all fans will cherish.
Unlike certain shows that drag on and on, "The Musketeers" is ending after going what it set out to do from the beginning, which is to say the story of the legendary musketeers and their glory. "I think things do have a natural lifespan, and I think, you know, 30 hours in this particular climate is a huge amount of episodic TV to deliver," executive producer Jessica Pope tells Cult Box.
The series finale is a result of wanting to maintain the quality of the show and not repeating storylines, assures Pope: "...we wanted to just prove to ourselves we'd done all the biggest stories we could do without then sort of filtering out into something that just repeated itself, really."
Moreover, the finale episode will celebrate all 30 hours of Season 3 and be an "extraordinary" ending to the audience and fans that love the show so very much.
Meanwhile, the show is going to air Season 3 episode 3 in the United States on Monday, June 20. The summary of the episode reads: "King Louis tasks the Musketeers with bringing his exiled brother, the Duke of OrlÃ©ans, back to Paris in order to mend bridges. On the way, the Duke is robbed of dangerous letters which could destroy OrlÃ©ans. The Duke informs the corrupt Governor of this, and the Governor's Red Guard must race the Musketeers in the hunt for the thief."
