Sky’s newest series The Third Day is perhaps one of the most ambitious shows to be airing in 2020. The drama has been penned by Utopia’s creator Dennis Kelly and split into three stories including a 12-hour live event featuring the Punchdrunk theatre company. The Third Day is set on the island of Osea – but where exactly is it?
Osea is a real place, just off the coast of Essex which is on the Blackwater Estuary.
The only access to the island is via a sandy causeway built by the Romans, which tends to disappear at high tide.
There’s also a taxi service which can transport visitors to and from Osea Island.
According to Osea’s official website, the island allows visitors to switch off and relax, wandering along the five-mile stretch of sandy beach.

Osea also boasts a range of accommodation for those staying for a longer visit.
The island is surrounded by 550 acres of gardens, orchards, meadows and salt marshes.
The Third Day tells three separate stories involving the arrival of outsiders to Osea and how they disrupt the status quo among the islanders.
The first story takes place in the summer and stars Jude Law and Katherine Waterson as a man and woman who are left reeling by their experiences on the island.

What was supposed to be a haven as Law’s Sam tries to deal with his grief, soon turns into something completely different amid the goings-on on the island.
Speaking at a recent BAFTA Q&A for The Third Day, Law told media including Express.co.uk about the experience of filming on Osea.sonos sonos One (Gen 2) - Voice Controlled Smart
