1783, Ross Poldark returns from the war to find his estate in ruins and his sweetheart Elizabeth is set to marry another. Can he begin anew? Aidan Turner (The Hobbit) and Eleanor Tomlinson star in an all-new version of the beloved, vintage romance.
With Anne pregnant again and away from court, Henry begins to take notice of Jane Seymour. Anne hears of this and threatens Cromwell to make terms with her before her son is born. But has she overplayed her cards?
Anne gives birth to a baby girl, failing to produce Henry’s longed for male heir. Cromwell requires the nobility and church to swear an oath acknowledging Anne as lawful Queen. But will Thomas More agree?
The cast and creators of the new series explore what makes Aidan Turner the perfect fit for this reimagined, saintly swashbuckler. Poldark airs Sundays, June 21 - August 2, at 9/8c on MASTERPIECE on PBS. #PoldarkPBS
