Headline says it all eh? Jonas Armstrong, the latest Robin Hood on our screens, is to bow out of series three in an explosive, nail-biting series finale. The third series of the show, which some love and most… well… don’t… returns next year seeing Robin older, grisled and more tough. Naturally, he’s hell bent on revenge following the tragic murder of Marian by Gisborne and the Sheriff’s failure to kill Prince John.
In the new series, The Sheriff is more unpredictable than ever with new threats looming over him and there’s the much anticipated arrival of Friar Tuck who joins the gang and becomes one of Robin’s closest allies.
Jonas Armstrong says: “Playing Robin Hood has been one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Over the last three years I have met some wonderful people and have only amazing memories to take with me. I’m grateful to the fans for their support and to all the cast and crew for their friendship and loyalty throughout, but the time has come to take on new challenges and look at new opportunities.”
Foz Allan, executive producer, Robin Hood adds: “Jonas has been a superb Robin Hood who updated the legend for a contemporary audience, reinvigorating it for a whole new generation. It has been a wonderful experience working with Jonas – we will miss him – and wish him all the success for his future. We cannot confirm the series climax nor can we guarantee who will survive and who won’t. You will have to watch it to see! But we can assure you Robin’s exit will be unmissable!”
Robin Hood series three is currently filming in Budapest and will return to BBC One next year with another 13 episodes.Join TVScoop on Facebook for exclusive competitions and gossip
