WATCH: Aidan Turner gets intense in first trailer for Poldark season 2
Aidan Turner is back and more intense than ever in the first trailer for Poldark season 2.
“I fought for our liberty; for our hopes; for our dreams; and I’ll keep on fighting, whatever the cost”, pledges the highland hero, over images of his two lady loves Elizabeth and Demelza.
Before season 2 has even hit our screens, Poldark is confirmed to continue with a third instalment, which will pick up four years after the second one (which is said to take place in 1970). Season 3 already has a short synopsis, which reveals:
“1794: Ross must traverse new family, new loves and new battles, as the French revolution casts a shadow over life in Cornwall.”
BBC executive producer Elizabeth Kilgarriff said of the show’s continuing success:
“Series two promises to take the audience on another fantastic rollercoaster ride and we’re thrilled to know that the story won’t end there. It’s a testament to Debbie [Horsfield, showrunner]’s brilliant storytelling and the passion of the Mammoth [production company] team that Poldark will be returning for a third series, with yet more twists and turns for these much-loved characters.”
Poldark is set to return to BBC One this autumn.
