Welcome to our second installment of highlights from The Durrells in Corfu Season 1! 

As you may recall Louisa and her clan had just made the decision to move from England to Corfu in hopes of changing the outlook and prospects for their family. While the sailing was smooth, the adjustment to life on a Mediterranean island paradise was a rude awakening. All the details of from the episode one recap can be found here.

In episode two we find the Durrells settling into their new lives on Corfu. In other words, Louisa struggles to cope with a lack of funds, the very real possibility of malnutrition and a house that is literally crumbling down around her. Meanwhile the Durrell children (who some, including their mother, might consider feckless) are busy getting on with their own lives. That is until a scary accident unites the family once more.

The end of an era is approaching: The Durrells in Corfu will be the series’ last. But that doesn’t mean that show won’t go out with plenty of heartwarming family moments before then.

The Durrells' final bow begins this weekend on ITV in the U.K. Viewers here in the States likely won’t see Season 4 until later this year, likely sometime in the Fall if previous patterns hold. (No official U.S. airdate has yet been announced.)

But, you can get a sneak peek at the final season now, thanks to the U.K. trailer released by ITV.

Last week, the Durrells had their hands full. Two friends needed rescuing - one from jail and one from dispair. Plus disappointing news arrived from England concerning an expected financial windfall was not to be after all. The full recap of last week's installment of The Durrells in Corfu can be found here

This week's season finale, on the other hand, turned out to be something like a chain reaction of toppling love dominos. Louisa and her three eldest children find themselves in the thick of relationship highs and lows while Gerry is concerned for the emotional welfare of their most recent animal lodger, Frank the sloth. But first, let’s examine the how the Durrells came to join the circus.

In this episode, we find Louisa Durrell a woman focused on at least two missions – the release of her former fiancé from police custody and the task of bringing her best friend, and very obvious object of her affection, out of the downward spiral he finds himself in. Add to this a philosophical feud between to her two oldest sons, hosting famous American writer and nudist Henry Miller (Trevor White) as a houseguest, waiting to discover the fate of a long-awaited inheritance and trying to break her youngest child of a rather inconvenient vegetarian habit and you realize it’s just a typical week for The Durrells in Corfu.
