Poldark Season 6: News and Update
About Poldark Season 6
Months after the season 5 ending, it was told that there are still 5 books in the Poldark novel. Should there be a season 6 of the Poldark series, it would definitely set back a lot of flashbacks on how and what had happened during the season 5.
It was understood that the storyline was jumped to fit into the 5 season plan of the series. Not much of the remaining story of the novels have been included in the 5 seasons. There are still questions left unanswered and stories that are yet to be told.
Season 6 would probably follow the continuation of a new storyline and challenges that await Ross Poldark and his family.
Future Film Crew
With the assumption that BBC will agree for a season 6 of Poldark, there is a high chance that creator and writer Debbie Horsfield will spearhead the project. This will also follow the same Executive producers as well as the films’ cinematography, editors, and production company.
Future Cast and Characters
Like many other series that follows an intimate storyline with its characters. Viewers would really love to see major actors retain their role rather than changing the actors of the same character every season.
The challenge for the casting is how to bring back the actors when most of them are now in demand and doing other projects.
Aidan Turner who plays the role of Ross Poldark said that he, if given the chance that the series would continue, still wants to play the role. His co-stars in the series, Jack Farthing, Luke Norris, and Eleanor Tomlinson also felt the same in playing their roles again.
Most of the cast in the series felt that even if the season 5 of the series was the end and was right, it doesn’t feel that it is the final.
Will there be a Season 6?
When season 5 of the series ended in 2019, the show’s executive producer Karen Thrussell has stated that the ‘season 5 will be the last series of Poldark’, while also saying ‘who knows what the future may bring’.
In line with this, writer and showrunner Debbie Horsfield are still open to the idea of making a season 6. She also expressed her thought that there are still five books left in the novel series and who would know what could happen in the years to come.
Sadly, as of this time, BBC holds the key if there should be a continuation of the series. The network also said that the plan for Poldark is for a 5 season series.
There have been no official statements about the continuation of the Poldark series, or anything that is related for a season 6. As to where BBC is standing, there is a possibility that there won’t be a season 6 of Poldark.
Film Release and Premiere Date
Looking at the completed 5 seasons of Poldark, there is no clear pattern in the series release date. Although, every season has been released with an interval of one year from its past season.
Given the decision of BBC, in any case, that should there be a season 6 of the series. It would most probably be released in 2021 or 2022.
No premiere date or film release for a Poldark Season 6.
