For everyone out there who loves Poldark, one thing feels clear: We are absolutely inching ever closer to premiere date news. We’re not going to be seeing it over the next few weeks, though, judging from when the latest screening is going to be held.
According to the BBC, the period drama is going to have an event at Redruth in Cornwall on June 20, which means most likely that the show’s not coming onto the network before that time. (Our hope is for late June/early July.) As for who is going to be in attendance for the event, think along the lines of Eleanor Tomlinson (Demelza Poldark), Jack Farthing (George Warleggan), Luke Norris (Dr Dwight Enys) and Ellise Chappell (Morwenna Carne). Also attending will be Debbie Horsfield (Writer and Executive Producer) and Karen Thrussell (Executive Producer). As of right now, Aidan Turner (Ross Poldark) is not confirmed to be in attendance.
What’s the significance of this event/ Well, first and foremost this should serve as an opportunity for the cast and crew of Poldark to gather in order to offer up one last salute to the show that made many of them into household names in the UK — and in the place that has become iconic since to the series. Poldark has led to a big influx in tourism in the region, and we think the show’s legacy will extend there long beyond the series’ big conclusion later this year.

Now, statement time!
Check out what some familiar faces on the show had to say about the big event.
Eleanor Tomlinson – “Cornwall is the heart of Poldark and I’m delighted to be returning to give our series the send-off it deserves, surrounded by the Cornish fans, without whom the series would not have been the success it is. Thank you for your constant support. I look forward to seeing you on the twentieth of June!”
Luke Norris – “I can’t wait to get back to Cornwall and share a sneak-preview of Poldark series five with some of the fans who have kept us going these past five years. It’s been a magical time for all of us, thanks largely to the county and its people, and I will always be grateful for their support.”
We don’t think that we’ve gotta tell you just how much we’re going to miss this show — it’s going to be immense and the idea of losing it is a hard pill to swallow. It’s beautifully-written, visually stunning, and the performances continue to be among the most underrated out of any on television. We’ve had four brilliant seasons to date, but it still doesn’t seem like we’ve had anywhere near enough.
