WATERTOWN, NY; December 28, 2022 – With a new year, comes an all-new season of period crime thriller Miss Scarlet and The Duke, featuring the headstrong, first-ever female detective in Victorian London. Season 3 begins Sunday, January 8, 2023, and will run Sunday nights at 8 PM through February 12, 2023 on MASTERPIECE on WPBS.

In Season 3, Eliza finds herself in fresh and surprising mysteries, ranging from a disappearing magician to police corruption, as she struggles to build her detective agency.
