Americans’ long wait for the third season of Mr. Selfridge is almost over.
PBS Distribution announced this week that it will release the third season of Mr. Selfridge on DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, May 5th. In what has been revealed to likely be the penultimate season of the hit British import, World War I is over and the men that survived the war have returned from to reclaim their jobs—that is jobs not already taken by their female counterparts. While they may be back from the war, many of the men at Selfridge & Co. are still haunted by the horrors of the war. Audiences also see a funeral this season. Returning for Season Three are: Amanda Abbington (Sherlock, Season 3) as Josie Mardle, Aisling Loftus (Page Eight) as Agnes Towler, Gregory Fitoussi (World War Z) as Henri LeClair, Amy Beth Hayes (The Syndicate) as Kitty Hawkins, and Samuel West (Any Human Heart) as Frank Edwards.
Those that have followed Mr. Selfridge since its first season will recognize also the return of the villainous Lord Loxley, played by Aidan McArdle (Jane Eyre) this season. Loxley was handled soundly in the series’ second season. But as audiences will see in Season 3, he doesn’t go down so easily. Selfrdige’s CFO Mr. Crabb returns this season, too. And he will be played again by Ron Cook (Little Dorrit). He is joined by fellow returning star Tom Goodman-Hill (Case Histories) who fills the role of Selridge’s personnel director, Mr. Grove. And Trystan Gravelle (Anonymous) returns, too as businessman Victor Colleano, who dreams of opening his own night club.
Real-life twin sisters Kara Tointon (Eastenders) and Hannah Tointon (The Lost Future) are newcomers in Season Three, playing Harry Selfridge’s daughters Rosalie and Violette.
The show’s list of guest stars this season includes Zoe Wanamaker (Poirot) as Princess Marie De Bolotoff, the mother of Harry’s new son-in-law and Kelly Adams (Endeavour) as Nancy Webb. Princess Marie De Bolotoff proves to be quite the thorn in Harry’s side whereas Nancy Webb plays an equally integral role in Harry’s life just in a different way than Princess Marie De Bolotoff or Lord Loxley.
Mr. Selfridge: Season Three will be released on DVD and Blu-ray Tuesday, May 5th. Season Three will be spread across three discs in both the DVD and Blu-ray box set. Both sets will also include a bonus half-hour-long behind-the-scenes feature. The DVD box set will retail for MSRP of $39.99 and the Blu-ray box set for MSRP of $44.99.
