PBS has announced when the new season of Poldark will begin in America.

Based on the series of historical novels by Winston Graham, the Cornish period drama series launched in 2015 and the final season began in the UK earlier this month.

It’ll be airing on Sunday nights this autumn alongside the final season of The Durrells in Corfu.

Watch the trailer:

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.
