With new allies and old enemies, Robin Hood returns for a third season full of thrilling adventures as Robin and his gang continue to outwit the dastardly Sheriff and his forces.
It is three months since Marian's death and Robin is a changed man. He's sacked his gang since they all returned from the Holy Land, and he's hell bent on avenging his wife's tragic end. Her slayer, Guy of Gisborne, is a marked man. But does Gisborne care if he lives or dies?
Fuelled by anger and grief, Robin seems stuck in a downward spiral, but a new beacon of hope arrives in the form of a travelling monk called Tuck, who soon gets our hooded hero back on track.
Meanwhile, the wickedness of the Sheriff continues unabated. A spirited Locksley girl named Kate objects to her brother's forced conscription - as a result she inadvertently gets caught up in the cause of Robin Hood and becomes an indispensable member of the gang.
An unexpected addition to the Gisborne family, Guy's little sister, Isabella, arrives and becomes a complication both Robin and Gisborne could do without.
As the threat of Prince John looms larger, Robin and Gisborne have to reach an uneasy truce as it emerges that they may have rather more in common than they thought.
