Poldark was without a doubt a great story. The show has been aired in five seasons and was a huge success. It aired its first episode in 2015, and ended in 2019. This, at the very least, is their skepticism. If the series has ended and it won’t go on, or if there will still be a season. Let’s first briefly recap what Poldark was. Poldark is a British television series about historical dramas featuring Aidan Turner. It’s based on Winston Graham’s books of the same title.
It takes place between 1781-1801. The story follows the return of the title character to Cornwall after the American Revolutionary War in 1783. He returns home to discover that Joshua his father has died, that his property has been destroyed and that he is heavily in debt. Elizabeth, his childhood sweetheart, has also become engaged with Francis his cousin.
Over five seasons, the story follows the lives of Demelza, Elizabeth, and Francis as they deal with broken hearts, conflict, death, and the births of their children. Let’s clear up any doubts viewers might have about the season’s cancellation or renewal.
Poldark Season 6: Renewed Or Cancelled?
The fifth and final season was shot in September 2018, and aired in July 2019. The season’s last episode aired on the 26th August 2019. The finale series concludes the story in 1801, nine years prior to the events of the eighth novel The Stranger from the Sea. Poldark will no longer be a series. It’s over.
BBC also announced that a historical drama based upon the Poldark novels will be produced for five seasons. Turner, the lead star of the drama, stated that they aimed to finish the majority of the books when we started Poldark. This would likely take them up to series five.
He added, “So during filming this series, there was a feeling of completion and relief that it got this far, and that the show is successful and that people like watching it.” We were proud to have reached that goal, and are looking forward to the fifth series.
Why did Poldark Come to an End?
According to multiple interviews with cast members and producers, Poldark’s creators decided that the show should be ended on a high note. Debbie Horsfield, writer for Poldark, said that while writing the final season was difficult, the ending is very positive.
“We are trying our best to serve the story and the story-line Ross and Demelza would have an a time jump that we’d really struggle with, so it is right to terminate the series now while it remains strong and while these characters remain loved and not diminished,” Eleanor Tomlinson (who plays Demelza) stated in an interview with Digital Spy.
“I am very sad that it is ending. She said that she was going to miss the cast, crew, and Aidan Turner (who plays Ross Poldark) deeply. “We have a wonderful bond and a brilliant relationship, and it will be very strange not to work.”
Although it is a sad moment, the series was great. You can still catch up on previous seasons if you missed it.
