I like romantic novels that have historical plots. And that’s why I fell in love with Poldark. In fact, I have watched all the episodes of the previous 5 seasons. Now my eye is on the Poldark Season 6.
But will season 6 really come? It’s a big question, no doubt. And to get the exact answer, you need to analyze lots of things.
Well, you can rely on the research that I did to get the answer for me. Here you will also find all the important aspects of this drama series.
Let’s check out.
The First Release Of Poldark:
If I ask you, would you like to have time travel? I know your answer would be yes. Of course, I can’t take you in the future; perhaps, I found a way to take you in the past. Before that, I have got another question for you.
Do you love to watch romantic drama series? I bet you do, and probably there are plenty of them on your list. However, you might have wondered, most of these are made on contemporary love stories and often lack the old historical plots.
In my opinion, love stories with an old historical plot have a different charm because these can take you a century backward and tell you how love was back then.
So, here again, are you ready for the time travel? If you are, then let’s get introduced to the Poldark. Poldark is a historical romantic drama series based on the novels of Winton Graham. The story represents the time between 1781 to 1801. I hope it makes sense why I mentioned the word time travel.
Its first episode was released on March 8, 2015, and aired on BBC One. Since then, it has released a total of 43 episodes.
Story At A Glance:
Ross Poldark was a British army man, went to the American War of Independence. After returning from the War, he finds that his father has passed away, their family business has spoiled and his girlfriend Elizabeth Chynoweth got engaged.
At that time, Ross was in a devastating condition. However, Demelza, who used to work as his maid, showed hope in his life in the form of love. Later, they got married.
If you watch the show, you will find the amazing chemistry between those two. Well, I don’t want to give you any spoilers. So, I am stopping here.
Who Played The Role Of Ross Poldark And Demelza:
Irish actor Aidan Turner played the role of Ross Poldark and won the hearts of thousands of Americans. Aidan Turner also played a role in ‘The Hobbit.’ On the other hand, Eleanor Tomlinson played the role of Demelza.
Source of the story:
As I mentioned earlier, it is based on the novels of Winston Graham. The first novel of the Poldark series was published in 1946, entitled Ross Poldark. Since then, a total of 12 novels of the Poldark series have been published.

How Many Seasons Of Poldark?
Well, Poldark has released a total of five seasons so far. The last episode of season 5 was aired on August 26, 2019. The maker of Poldark used novels 1 to 8 for the script. However, the story in season 5 was not taken from the novels. They made some major changes in the story.
Poldark Season 6 Release Date: [Update: January, 2022]
Ever since season 5 of Poldark ended, people are very much curious about Poldark Season 6. This curiosity is very obvious if you have finished watching season 5. Sadly, the makers of Poldark already announced season 5 as the last season of this drama series.
Even after this announcement, you can expect Poldark season 6. Why? Let’s see.
As you already know, the makers used Winton Graham’s first eight novels for the scripts. There are still four novels that have still remained unexplored. So, in my opinion, there can be season 6.
There are more reasons based on which I am expecting Poldark season 6. The producer of Poldark, Karen Thrussell said, who knows the future! She replied when she was asked about the Poldark season 6 in an interview.
Again, the scriptwriter of the Poldark TV series, Debbie Horsfield said that she would be available to write season 6. So, there is still hope for season 6. Now, the time would decide the fate of Poldark season 6. You just can wait for the Poldark season 6 release date.
How Can I Watch?
You can find the series on Netflix, iTunes, Amazon prime. Also, there are DVDs available for the whole five seasons in the market. So, from there, you can get one easily.
Is it a true story?
If you have watched the whole five seasons, this question is very obvious. That credit goes to the makers and the author Winston Graham. But for your information, it’s not a real story.
However, when an author writes a story, more or less, it reflects his surroundings. If you are currently watching sitcom-like Friends or Letterkenny season 9, you may have wondered, those sitcoms are only made for entertainment and do not reflect the surroundings to that extent.
The drama series is more likely to reflect the surroundings. So, in the case of Poldark, it might be a true story.
It has won the BAFTA Awards, 2016 and the Satellite Awards, 2018 for best TV Ensemble. Nominated-

Social Media Popularity:
Well, the series is quite popular on social media. The official page of Poldark has a total of 223 thousand like, and its official Instagram page has a total of 142 thousand followers.
Now, it’s time to draw a full stop in my article. If you are looking for a different love story in a different period of time, I would highly recommend you to watch this.
And, those who have done with season 5, wait for season 6, you can get announced any moment. Perhaps, you guys can read the remaining novels of Poldark!
