'Poldark' Returns 11 June!



The wait is nearly over! The BBC have announced that Poldark will return to our screens in UK on 11 June!

We've known since April that series three will air in June in the UK but news of the actual date seems long overdue. It had been expected the show would take the Autumn slot it held last year but at the BFI and Radio Times Festival executive producer Damien Timmer said they wanted to keep the show's momentum going, having felt the gap between series one and two was just too long. Poldark S3 covers all of Winston Graham's The Black Moon and half of  The Four Swans.

In September the cast and crew will begin filming the fourth series of Poldark, covering the remainder of The Four Swans and the whole of The Angry Tide. Recently The Radio Times suggested, if commissioned, the drama may run to a fifth series with the remaining five books being covered in one season.  Whilst it seems quite a task to cover five books in a single series Karen Thrussell said at the press preview earlier this month,"What's always been so brilliant about Debbie (Horsfield's) writing is the way she writes short scenes and they power through. You get these characters and she punches you with them."

Poldark series three is on BBC One, Sunday 11 June at 9 pm and on PBS Masterpiece 1 October.
