Fans were shocked to learn that BBC one has canceled the series. The news broke out before the premiere of season 3.
This resulted in low viewership of the final episodes of the show. One of the main reasons attributed to the cancellation of the show is – The departure of Peter Capaldi.
The veteran bid goodbye to his character Cardinal Richelieu in the middle of season 2. This made BBC lose trust in the series.
Why was The Musketeer Cancelled?
But why did the show fail to maintain its viewership? Will the cast ever return for a fourth season of The Musketeer?
We already told you that low ratings were the main reason for the cancellation of the show and the exit of Peter has a lot to do with it.
Yes, the show was inspired by The Three Musketeers, but it didn’t follow the book’s plot closely enough.
The show also seemed to have lost its focus in the second and third seasons, with too many subplots and not enough character development.
Now the big question is Will The Musketeers ever return for a fourth season?
The show’s lead actors, Tom Burke, Howard Charles, and Santiago Cabrera, have all moved on to other projects since the show’s cancellation. Luke Pasqualino, who played D’Artagnan, is also busy with other commitments. Bringing the cast back together for a fourth season would require careful planning and coordination.
Do Aramis and Anne end up together?
According to several fan theories, the couple Aramis and Queen Anne do end up together. The show deviates from its source book in many ways.
The book did not have any plot that involved the romantic relationship between Queen Anne (Alexandra Dowling) and Aramis (Santiago Cabrera).
So if you are wondering Who does Aramis end up with? then the answer is probably – Queen Anne.
Who does Porthos marry in The Musketeers?
In the BBC One series, The Musketeers Porthos does not get married during the show’s 3 seasons. While Porthos has several romantic relationships throughout the series, he does not get married.
Instead, the show focuses on the swashbuckling adventures of The Musketeers & the political intrigue of 1600s France.
