Poldark season 5 is right around the corner, and all of the discussion of it being the final season is unavoidable. It also is accurate. This is the final season of the show on BBC One and it was planned out as such. The network doesn’t want to guarantee you something more without knowing if it will ever come back! If we had to guess, we’d say that Sherlock is more likely to return and even it has been the subject of rampant speculation on the future.
Yet, what the cast is doing in regards to the show’s future is keeping the door open just a tiny crack. We’ve heard show writer Debbie Horsfield already say that there is some interest in doing more years down the road, and Aidan Turner himself has now uttered something similar. There is the source material out there for stories featuring an older Ross Poldark, but it’s not something we foresee happening in a year or two. We’re talking many years down the road.
Check out what Turner had to say on the subject in a new spotlight feature with The Times:
“Never say never … It would be silly, though, to say that it’s completely off the table.”
We wouldn’t read this in a way to get you overly excited. We think this is more Turner noting that he doesn’t know where he will be several years down the road and never wants to rule out an opportunity to work with a great cast and crew again. Poldark was a life-changing experience for everyone involved and there is a maximum level of awareness all around that. They don’t want to rule out having this opportunity in the future.

Is the Poldark season 5 premiere date confirmed?
There’s been some scuttlebutt around it thanks to BBC’s press center temporarily listing that the show will be back on July 14; yet, those listings were removed last we checked. They may have been posted early, or the info within may be erroneous. This feels like the best premiere date for the series, but still take it with a grain of salt. (It also mislabeled the episode count as six, when we’ve been led to believe that there will be eight.)
