‘Poldark’ is back: Watch dramatic new trailer for Season 5!

The BBC has released a new trailer for the last ever season of Poldark.

Based on the series of historical novels by Winston Graham, the Cornish period drama series first aired in 2015.

The fifth season begins this weekend in the UK, with the show’s final eight episodes airing at 9pm on Sunday nights on BBC One this summer.

Season 5 will air in the USA later this year on PBS.

If you fancy watching the exact same trailer but with different music, here’s the American version:

The official synopsis for Season 5 reads: “With a new century comes the promise of a hopeful future, but the past casts a long shadow over Cornwall. Following the death of Elizabeth, Ross Poldark (Aidan Turner) resolves to put Westminster behind him and spend more time with the people he loves.

“However, when an old friend needs help, Ross is compelled to challenge the establishment and question his own loyalties to king and country.

“As the Enyses (Luke Norris and Gabriella Wilde) rally to join the cause, Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson) must contend with dangers close to home, while George (Jack Farthing) courts corrupt powers whose influence spans the Empire.”

The first four seasons of Poldark are available on DVD on Amazon.
