Poldark is one of the most successful historical dramas, and the fifth season of this hit show concluded two years back on BBC. Ever since then, the fans of this show are demanding to see Poldark Season 6. However, the makers are yet to fulfill their wishes. They are really curious to know what will happen next in the life of Aidan Turner. So, will they ever be able to find this out? Here are all the latest details.
Poldark is a British historical drama TV series. It is an adaptation of Winston Graham’s novel series of the same name. Debbie Horsfield has written and adapted this show for BBC. The debut season of the series premiered on March 8, 2015. After a great response, BBC renewed this period drama for further installment. The network has released a total of five seasons so far. Its fifth installment concluded on August 26, 2019.
Poldark Season 6: Renewal Status
Back in 2018, even before the premiere of the fifth season, BBC announced that it would be the last installment of the series. The plot of the fifth season was pretty original, and it explored things that weren’t discussed in the novel series. It left a lot of source material for the further installments, but BBC decided to pull off the plug from this show. Some devoted fans of the series are still hopeful that someday, BBC might reverse their decision and give the green light to Poldark Season 6.
They really think that the show should continue and adopt the entire book series. The network still has content from the last five books, which means they can easily make two more seasons of this show. Unfortunately, they decided not to continue this show, and the renewal status of the sixth installment is still ‘canceled.’
Showrunners On The Sixth Installment
Several members of the crew released a statement after the completion of this show. One among them is the screenwriter Debbie Horsfield. He stated, “Winston Graham had left a lot of hints in book eight about incidents which had occurred in those intervening years, but he discloses little away about how Ross got that transformation.” She even said that she is looking for the opportunity to make the sixth season.
Debbie is certainly interested in continuing the story of Aidan Turner, but she might not get a chance. However, Turner is pretty confident that they completed the series and that too in a good way. They resolved most of the storylines, and they are satisfied with the ending they get.
Poldark Season 6: Release Date
As previously mentioned, BBC already confirmed that the historical drama wouldn’t return for the sixth installment. But just in case they decide to reverse their decision to adopt the rest of the novels, then Poldark Season 6 might hit the screens sometime in 2023.
