6 new story hints for the final season of ‘Poldark’

The BBC has revealed some brand new storyline details for the next season of Poldark.

Based on the series of historical novels by Winston Graham, the Cornish period drama series will return in 2019 for a final season.

Showrunner Debbie Horsfield recently confirmed that the new episodes will, for the first time, not be based on Graham’s books.

Instead, Season 5 will be set during the 10 year time gap that occurs between the seventh book, The Angry Tide, and the eighth, The Stranger from the Sea.

Here are 6 teasers for what to expect in next year’s episodes:

It’s a new century and with it comes the promise of a hopeful future. However, the past casts a long shadow over Cornwall.

Following Elizabeth’s death, Ross resolves to spend more time with his loved ones and put Westminster behind him.

But when an old friend appears with a plea for help, Ross feels he must challenge the establishment once again.

The Enyses decide to join the cause.

George gets involved with corrupt powers whose influence spans the British Empire.

Demelza must face dangers close to home.

The first three seasons of Poldark are available to buy on DVD now.

Season 4 is currently airing in the USA at 9/8c on Sunday nights on Masterpiece on PBS.
