Poldark Season 5 will be the last in the BBC drama’s run, according to star Aidan Turner, however “it could come back in ten years,” per Digital Spy:
“I have some mixed feelings, I suppose. It’s been big for us all, and it’ll always be a very special thing. But things naturally come to an end, I suppose.
I think we’ve done really well with Winston [Graham]’s books, [on which the series is based]. I hope he’d be proud. Certainly, Andrew – his son – is, and the estate, so I think we’ve done pretty well with it.
You don’t want things to go on too long and just limp out the backdoor. So I think next year [the fifth series] might be the last one – certainly for a while. We may come back. Who knows?
The jump is huge,” Turner acknowledged. “But I’m not putting grey in my hair [for the next series] or anything like that. I’ll come back in 10 years and revisit it the right way.”
Aidan’s revelation comes weeks after the BBC renewed Poldark for Season 5 without announcing it as the last in the series.
Cancelled or ended? Semantics aside, the fifth and seemingly final season of Poldark is slated to air in 2019.
Will you miss Poldark? Is the show coming to an end too soon? Hopeful for Season 6 or a future revival?
