The fifth and final season of Poldark will premiere on BBC One on Sunday July 14th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Poldark, which is 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, Jack Farthing, Luke Norris, Gabriella Wilde, Ellise Chappell, Harry Richardson, Tom York, Beatie Edney, Lily Dodsworth Evans, Kerri McLean, Sofia Oxenham, Vincent Regan, Peter Sullivan and Freddie Wise.
While season four was based on the seventh novel, season five explores the “gap years” mentioned in the eighth novel. It is a new century and with it comes the promise of a hopeful future, but the past casts a long shadow over Cornwall. Following the death of Elizabeth, Ross Poldark (Aidan Turner) resolves to put Westminster behind him and spend more time with the people he loves. However, when an old friend emerges with a plea for help, Ross is compelled to challenge the establishment again. As the Enyses (Luke Norris and Gabriella Wilde) rally to join the cause, Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson) must contend with dangers close to home, while George (Jack Farthing) courts corrupt powers whose influence spans the Empire.
