‘Poldark’ season 2: Premiere date speculation, more for Aidan Turner series

“Poldark” has become quite the revelation for the BBC, despite the series only been on the air for a matter of months. It has delivered splendid ratings, mostly positive reviews, and also made series star Aidan Turner into a heartthrob all around the UK.

So with that, it should not come as much of a shock that the series has a little bit of job security going into tonight’s season 1 finale. It was confirmed earlier this month by the network that a second season (or series, as it is called in Britain) has been ordered, and will most likely air next year. The series has a nice home for itself in the spring, following up on another successful program in “Call the Midwife.” It makes sense for it to be here, especially at a time when there are no other smash scripted hits airing a la “Doctor Who” or “Sherlock.”

The original TV series aired in the 1970s, and we already wonder if this is a series that could have a much longer life in the present. This is possible, but there are seemingly limitations in the source material. Would the show pull a “Call the Midwife” and try to forego the ending of the books in favor of a longer life? We don’t necessarily rule it out, since this is ultimately a new work and they can do whatever they want with the Ross Poldark character.

Ultimately, we imagine that the success of the show, coupled with the interest that many of the actors and producers have in continuing it, will likely dictate much of the future.
