Want some official Poldark season 4 premiere details? We’re happy to finally have some courtesy of the BBC! Note that there still isn’t an official premiere date for the new season — June 10 is the date that’s been bandied about, but in the listing for the series on the show’s official press site there is still no confirmed launch day or time.
Nonetheless, we are happy to be able to share a few more substantial details in regards to what lies ahead today courtesy of the network, including the photo above of Sam Carne from the hour. Of course, we’ll give you fair warning that there are some spoilers ahead — they are spoilers that the BBC is clearly comfortable having out there, but they are spoilers nonetheless to many unfamiliar with the source material:
While Ross watches Cornwall suffer under the power of Truro’s MP, George Warleggan (Jack Farthing), Demelza’s infidelity leaves her torn between her husband and a lovesick Hugh, who is set to rival George in the upcoming election.
The Enyses contemplate having a child and Elizabeth seeks the same to secure her marriage. Meanwhile, Morwenna (Ellise Chappell) uses Osborne’s (Christian Brassington) affair with her sister Rowella (Esme Coy) to keep the reverend’s advances at bay, and Demelza seeks to reconcile rival local Lords Falmouth and Basset.
A corn riot erupts in Truro, and Zacky’s (Tristan Sturrock) son Jago (Jack Riddiford) leads the charge. Sam Carne (Tom York) and Drake Carne (Harry Richardson) attempt to dissuade him but arrive too late, and a merchant is killed in the fighting. Tom Harry (Turlough Convery) tells George that the Carnes and Jago murdered the man, and Ross finds himself powerless to save his brothers-in-law…
It’s clear upon looking at this that while time will progress rather quickly at times this season, the premiere isn’t picking up too far past the events from season 3. That’s where we saw Demelza struggling between Ross and Hugh and where Morwenna was able to finally secure some sort of victory within her abusive marriage. It’s great to see Sam and Drake have some more to do in this first episode, though at the same time it seems that they are clearly in danger. There’s a great cause for concern here and we absolutely feel for Morwenna, as well — if something happens to the man she truly loves in Drake, how much more devastated will that leave her?
What are you the most excited to see on the Poldark season 4 premiere?
