When does ‘Poldark’ Season 3 start on Masterpiece on PBS?

The third season of Poldark will begin in the US later this year, PBS has confirmed.

Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson recently returned in the UK with nine new episodes of the BBC’s epic Cornish saga.

Season 3 premieres at 9/8c on Sunday October 1 on Masterpiece on PBS.

It’s 1794 and Ross must traverse new family, new love and new conflicts, as the French revolution casts a shadow over life in Cornwall. Facing battles both at home and abroad, will Ross answer the call and risk losing everything he holds dear?

The complete first and second seasons of Poldark are available to buy on DVD now.

Actor Aidan Turner confirmed recently that it looks likely the period drama will end after the fifth season, while rumours emerged last week that Poldark could become a West End musical.
