The Poldark season 5 premiere is finally (almost!) here … at least provided that you’re in the UK. While American viewers may have to wait until the fall, BBC One is premiering the first episode of the final season tomorrow. It’s going to be dramatic, painful, hopeful, funny, romantic … and go ahead and throw a lot of other adjectives in here, as well. The truth is that Poldark is a show that brings a lot of different emotions to the table, and that is a tremendous reason for its popularity. It manages to hit you with one big reveal after the next and it takes a reasonable amount of pride in keeping you on your toes.
So how can you best prepare for the Poldark season 5 premiere? We think that reading some more details over here is a nice way to get set up, but so is checking out the video below! In this, you can catch up or refresh on the first four seasons in a short span of time. It gives you a good sense of Ross’ relationship with Demelza, the rivalry between George Warleggan and the Poldark family, and then eventually the tragedy that transpires at the end of season 4. It’s a nice way to give you most of the events that matter for season 5 within just five minutes’ worth of time. Make no mistake, though, that it is no substitute for watching the episodes themselves.
(If you want to refresh yourself on just the season 4 finale, we have our own video below discussing that further! Once you do that, subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube and stay tuned. We’ll have more video discussion tomorrow.)
Within the episode tomorrow, you will see George continue to mourn Elizabeth while Ross continues to wade into politics. Some new characters will surface, and you will start to see Demelza and Morwenna make some more important decisions on what they want their respective lives to be moving forward. Nothing will be resolved at the end of the premiere, though; there are many threads that will carry over, hopefully in an exciting way, through the remaining seven episodes.
