The series takes place in 18th century London and follows the Wells family as they try to run a successful brothel despite strong competition from their rival, Lydia Quigley. The third season will consist of 8 episodes, just as the first two have.
The renewal comes despite the fact that series lead Samantha Morton, who plays madam Margaret Wells, has been cast as the villain Alpha in the upcoming season of “The Walking Dead.” It is unknown in what capacity Morton will appear in the third season, but she is expected to return.
In addition to Morton, the series also stars Lesley Manville, Jessica Brown-Findlay, and Eloise Smyth. Liv Tyler also appeared in Season 2 as a socialite whom Margaret enlists in her feud with Lydia.
The series hails from the creative team of Moira Buffini, Alison Newman, Alison Owen, Debra Hayward and Alison Carpenter.
The Hollywood Reporter first broke the renewal.
