Over the past four seasons of the acclaimed drama Poldark, we’ve joined the titular character, Ross Poldark, on his journey through politics, love, and everything in between. It began with his return to Cornwall after the Revolutionary War and has surged through the ups and downs of his life and the lives of his family and neighbors. Poldark is returning to Masterpiece on PBS this fall with the fifth and final season of the series. Watch the teaser trailer below, and catch a glimpse of what Poldark and his compatriots will encounter in the forthcoming season.
Watch the teaser trailer:
Poldark stars Aidan Turner (The Hobbit, And Then There Were None) as Ross Poldark. Eleanor Tomlinson (Death Comes to Pemberley, Colette) stars as Demelza Poldark, and the series also features Jack Farthing (The Riot Club, Burn Burn Burn) as George Warleggan, Luke Norris (The Duchess, Skins) as Dwight Enys, Gabriella Wilde (Endless Love, Carrie) as Caroline Enys, Ellise Chappell (Yesterday) as Morwenna Whitworth, and Harry Richardson (Death in Paradise, Dunkirk) as Drake Carne.
According to PBS, new characters will also be joining the cast: “In addition to the beloved cast regulars, a number of new cast members will join Poldark for Season 5, including: Lily Dodsworth Evans (Genius), Kerri McLean (Electric Dreams) and Sofia Oxenham (Grantchester). Vincent Regan (300), Peter Sullivan (Entebbe) and Freddie Wise (Maleficent 2).”
While this is slated to be the last season of Poldark, the character could make his way to the screen again. PBS shares the sentiments of Karen Thrussell, Executive Producer for Mammoth Screen, who says, “We are confident that fans of the novels will appreciate the care with which Debbie Horsfield is continuing to adapt Winston Graham’s saga. This will be the last series in the Poldark chronicle…for now. Who knows what the future may bring.”
The fifth season of Poldark will air on Masterpiece on PBS beginning Sunday, September 29, 2019, at 9/8c. Check local listings to confirm. Be sure to catch up on season four before the new episodes air, and to learn more about Poldark, visit pbs.org.
