All Creatures Great and Small Season 3: The third season of All Creatures Great and Small has come out, which is excellent news for fans of the show. The revival has been a huge hit worldwide, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that there will be more episodes.
It will follow the young vet James Herriot’s adventures once more. It takes place in the 1930s in the Yorkshire Dales and is based on a series of books by the real-life vet Alf Wight, who wrote James Herriot.
And in this series, we finally get to see what we’ve all been waiting for: James (Nicholas Ralph) and Helen’s wedding (Rachel Shenton). Here’s what we know…
All Creatures Great and Small Season 3: Release Date
Channel 5 has already shown the third season of All Creatures Great and Small. But you can now watch the entire season on My5. You can also watch the first and second seasons! In the US, the show will debut on PBS on Sunday, January 8 at 9 pm (ET).
What is the Plot?
In the first two seasons of All Creatures, the main question was whether or not James and Helen would end up together. It was close, especially when Helen nearly married someone else. But we do know that James and Helen get married in the third season of All Creatures Great and Small.
Nicholas says to us: “I can’t say much, but it’s everything you’d want it to be: romantic, touching, and funny because of the little accidents and growing pains that happen on the day… I’m really looking forward to people seeing it.”
Rachel adds: “Yes, they do get married, but there are problems along the way, just like in any TV wedding… The dress for the wedding is lovely. Our costume designer is very good, and we wanted something that looked and felt good.”
Who is in the Cast?
The main characters are all back. James (played by Nicholas Ralph) and Helen (played by Rachel Shenton) are finally dating. Tristan Farnon (Callum Woodhouse) and his older brother Siegfried Farnon (Samuel West) will have more fights, even though we know how much they really love each other.
Plus, Mrs. Hall, played by Anna Madeley, is back. While Patricia Hodge stays on as Mrs. Pumphrey, the strange dog owner who was played in the first series by the late Diana Rigg.
Season 3 Won’t Be the Last One
Masterpiece PBS announced in January that the show would continue for two more seasons (season 3 and season 4). A press release said, “Season 3 will start filming again this spring in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, with all of the fans’ favorite actors coming back.”
The Radio Times also reported that Vanstone said the show could go on for much longer than he had planned. When he first thought about making a TV show out of James Herriot’s books, he thought it would run for four seasons.
But now that the show has become popular and has a life of its own on screen, he’s having second thoughts. This is partly because fans love the slow pace. “I think that when we started the show, we had in mind arcs for these characters that would take them through a number of series,” he said.
“At first, there were sort of four series. But in this show, everything happens slower than you think it will. I think that in other shows, you might feel like you need more stories, more action, and more things going on, but that’s not the case with ours. We give things a little time.”
