Poldark is to air in the US in 2015. It will be shown on Masterpiece on the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).

The original series of Poldark with Robin Ellis was shown on Masterpiece in the 1970s and was a big hit. The new series stars Aidan Turner (The Hobbit) as Ross Poldark and Eleanor Tomlinson (The White Queen) as Demelza and is adapted from the books by Winston Graham.

Masterpiece's Executive Producer Rebecca Eaton announced the return of Poldark at the PBS Annual Meeting on 14 May, 2014. She said, "I'm very proud to say that after 44 years, MASTERPIECE (sic) continues to make news, win awards, and attract new audiences, How many other television series have the great good fortune to make that claim?"

  2. Someone up there must like me. Being a fan of Aidan Turner I heard that the BBC was remaking the series. Then hearing what Poldark was about I thought ‘it’ would be something I would love to see. I’m a self-proclaimed Anglophile. I love films, books, TV series and such that are set in England. Period pieces are my absolute favorite. I started reading the books. They are so good. I just finish book 2 and can’t wait to start book 3. I even lent the books to my sister so I could have someone to talk to about them. BUT while I was reading them I was beginning to feel a little deprived. There are so many wonderful ‘scenes’ that I wanted to see on film and I didn’t know when or if I will be able to. I’m so excited. I have been doing Snoopy’s happy dance ever since I heard the news yesterday.
