Hailed by The Wall Street Journal as “an island of charm,” The Durrells in Corfu returns for a third season of eccentric family adventures on a Greek isle in the 1930s. Based on the memoirs of Gerald Durrell, the animal-loving youngest member of the clan, the series stars Keeley Hawes as the plucky widowed mother, Louisa Durrell; Josh O'Connor as her eldest son, Lawrence, who is destined to become a famous novelist; Callum Woodhouse as the hapless sportsman, Leslie; Daisy Waterstone as the lovelorn teen, Margo; and Milo Parker as Gerald. The bohemian Durrells fit right in with the light-hearted Greeks — except when they disastrously don’t.
On the season premiere episode, Louisa tries to persuade Leslie to get rid of two of his three girlfriends, Margot to find a hobby and Gerry to get rid of some of his pets.
Then on the Sunday, October 7 at 8 PM ET episode, when Aunt Hermione dies suddenly, Louisa has to accompany her body back to England. Leslie may have gotten one of his girlfriends pregnant.
On the Sunday, October 14 at 8 PM ET episode, Louisa and Larry arrive in England for Aunt Hermione's burial while the rest of the family keeps things running not so smoothly in Corfu.
