Without a doubt, Poldark was a brilliant story. It has a total of five seasons, all of which were spectacularly successful. The show aired for the first time in 2015 and concluded in 2019. That, at least, is the viewers’ skepticism. If the series is over and won’t be renewed, or if there will be another season. Before we get started, let’s emphasize what Poldark was all about. Poldark is a British historical drama television series featuring Aidan Turner. And it’s centered on Winston Graham’s novels of the same name.
The story takes place between 1781 and 1801. And it chronicles the title character as he returns to Cornwall just after American Revolutionary War in 1783. When he returns home, he finds that his father Joshua has passed away, that his property is in shambles and is massively in debt, and that his childhood sweetheart Elizabeth has become engaged to his cousin Francis.
The plot follows the adventures of Ross and Demelza, Elizabeth and Francis, and George Warleggan as they struggle with their marriages, broken hearts, death, the birth of their children, and conflict throughout the course of five seasons. So, let’s dispel any doubts that viewers may have had about the upcoming season’s renewal or cancellation.
Poldark Season 6 – Renewed Or Cancelled?
The fifth and final season began filming in September 2018 and was aired in July 2019. On the 26th of August, 2019, the season’s final episode aired. The final series wraps up the narrative in 1801, nine years before the events of the eighth novel, The Stranger from the Sea. There will be no more seasons of Poldark; the show has come to an end, and it’s definitely not a good news.
The BBC also announced that a historical drama based on the Poldark novels would be produced for five seasons.”When we started Poldark, we aimed to complete the majority of the books that we could, which would likely take us up to series five,” stated lead star Turner of the drama.
Adding, “So during filming for this series there was a sense of completion and relief that we made it this far, that the show has been successful and that people enjoy watching it. Hitting that mark and returning for the fifth series was always the goal and we are proud to have achieved that.”
Why Did Poldark Come to an End?
Poldark’s creators decided to eliminate the show on a high note, according to numerous interviews with producers and cast members. “Writing the end of this final season was sad,” writer Debbie Horsfield said, “but the ending itself is uplifting.”
“We are trying to serve the story to the best of our ability and the story-line of Ross and Demelza would have a time jump we’d really battle with, and it is right to end the series now while it is so strong and while these characters are loved and not diminished in any way,” actress Eleanor Tomlinson, who plays Demelza, stated in an interview with Digital Spy.
“I feel very sad about it ending. I’m really going to miss the cast and crew and I’m really going to miss Aidan [Turner, who plays Ross Poldark],” she added. “We have a brilliant bond and a brilliant relationship and it is going to be very strange not going to work.”
Though it’s a tragedy that the series has come to an end, it was fantastic; if you miss it, you can catch up on prior seasons.
