Poldark season 5 is going to be on television before you know it, at least if you’re located in the UK. Still, a part of it is hard to digest — even if we’ve had time to do so. With the show’s timeless nature, we wish that it was on for so many more years — think in terms of all the action, adventure, and romance we could behold. Given that all good things must come to an end, we’re confident that Debbie Horsfield and the rest of the creative team have put together a beautiful ending that echoes what we love about these characters.
Musically, we absolutely know it’s going to be on point with its sweeping and at-times heartbreaking score and that is the focus of this article. In a new post on Twitter, Anne Dudley confirms that yesterday marked the final recording session for the series. That means that we are at the end of yet another era, a statement that we’re probably going to be saying a lot over the next few weeks. The cast and crew were already done with production, post-production has been going for a while, and there have already been two premiere events in various parts of the United Kingdom — including one in Cornwall that you can read about here.
At this point, it really feels like one of the last things that we’re waiting for is for the show to premiere. Signs point to it starting next month, and if that’s the case, we will be saying goodbye to Poldark at some point in September — at least provided BBC One doesn’t do anything crazy.

If you haven’t heard, Poldark season 5 is going to be more of a continuation of season 4 then a line-by-line re-creation of the Winston Graham source material. Because there are enormous time jumps in the story, those will not be reflected in what Horsfield is trying to tell in this season. Instead, you will see Ross and Demelza at a different point in their lives than what you do in the books. George will be in mourning, Morwenna and Drake will be at an early point in their relationship, and everyone involved will be doing their best to survive. That is the Poldark way, after all — finding a way to come home to the person you love, time and time again.
