The third season of BBC One’s Poldark will premiere on Sunday June 11th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Penned by Debbie Horsfield, Poldark is set in late 18th century Cornwall when Ross Poldark returns from the American War of Independence to his beloved Cornwall to find his world in ruins: his father dead, the family mine long since closed, his house wrecked and his sweetheart pledged to marry his cousin. But Ross finds that hope and love can be found when you are least expecting it in the wild but beautiful Cornish landscape.
The show’s nine episode third season is set in 1794. Ross must traverse new family, new love and new conflicts, as the French revolution casts a shadow over life in Cornwall. Facing battles both at home and abroad, will Ross answer the call and risk losing everything he holds dear? Ross tries to rebuild his marriage to Demelza, but their fragile peace is disturbed by the arrival of her deeply Methodist brothers Sam and Drake Carne.
The drama series, based on the series of novels by Winston Graham and the 1970s television series of the same name, is produced by Mammoth Screen and stars Aidan Turner, Eleanor Tomlinson, Heida Reed, Jack Farthing, Luke Norris, Gabriella Wilde, Beatie Edney, John Nettles, Caroline Blakiston, Ellise Chappell, Harry Richardson, Tom York, Harry Marcus, John Hollingworth, Ed Browning, Turlough Convery, Tristan Sturrock, Mark Frost, Robin Ellis, Richard Hope, Sean Gilder, John Hopkins, Josh Whitehouse, Christian Brassington, Siobhan O’Carroll, Ciara Charteris, Ruby Bentall, James Wilby and Pip Torrens.
