Series five of Poldark is heading our way very soon

After leaving our screens last year, the wait for series five of Poldark has been a long one.

Not to worry though as the new series is right around the corner so it won't be long until Aidan Turner is back on our screens as the titular Poldark.

But just when is the new series set to hit our screens?

Series 5 synopsis 

After the events of last year's series four, the Poldarks are hoping to enjoy a life of peace and quiet.

However, Ross’s old Army Colonel, Ned Despard (Vincent Regan), makes a desperate plea, compelling Poldark to journey to London.

Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson), who has been left in charge of the Poldark estate, manages their affairs in Cornwall and encounters a new opponent, Tess (Sofia Oxenham).

George (Jack Farthing) meanwhile is struggling to come to terms with the realities of the world after Elizabeth’s death and it falls to Cary (Pip Torrens) to expand the family empire - as Valentine (Woody Norman) endeavours to find his place within it.

Poldark Cast

Arriving in London, Ross (Aidan Turner) finds a city gripped with paranoia, and is determined to save Ned from the conspiracy that imprisoned him.

George enters into an alliance with the merchant behind Ned’s imprisonment, Ralph Hanson (Peter Sullivan), whose business is in upholding the slave trade. Meanwhile, Geoffrey Charles (Freddie Wise) decides to follow in Ross’s footsteps and enter the military - but also finds himself drawn to Cecily Hanson (Lily Dodsworth-Evans), Ralph’s daughter.

As George’s grief leads the Warleggans into uncharted and worrying territory, Ross discovers a grave plot and is urged to heroism, while Demelza is forced into action herself back at home.
