Things We May See in Poldark Series Two


It’s been almost a year since the denizens of Poldark‘s cozy corner of Cornwall graced American shores, what with all their brooding tension and questionable costuming choices. Rumors are flying in the British press about the second season, so why not indulge in a little speculation for fans on this side of the pond?

Here’s what I could dig up…

Poldark season 2


1. Poldark Series 2 Won’t Premiere Until Fall 2016

That’s at the earliest. And that’s in the UK. So I’d guess January 2017 for PBS Masterpiece here in the states (however, that’s wild speculation on my part). Conveniently, much of the season 2 filming occurred during fall and winter 2015 to 2016, so the whole thing will have an autumnal look and feel. But that may mean less shirtless scything (awww).

2. But We’ll See More “Slightly Naked Scenes”

I don’t know what that means exactly — just that it’s not out in the fields. And they will be high quality. So, um, artistic? Crucial to the plot? Maybe Ross becomes a studio model and Demelza takes up painting?

3. We’ll Get 10 Episodes in Poldark 2

From the pouty-lipped mouth of Aidan Turner himself, “We’ve two extra episodes this season, which is amazing. The shoot is probably seven and a half months or something like that. A bit longer than last year.”

4. We See One New Fashion Plate in Poldark Series 2

Joining the folks in Cornwall is Caroline Penvenen (played by Gabriella Wilde), who will up the style game. Maybe. Her character has some money and she’s upper-class, so supposedly she’ll be wearing fancy clothes. But let’s remember series one’s costuming ups and downs and not get our hopes up too high.

5. We Do Have BTS Poldark Season 2 Pix!

What do they mean? What are they from? I don’t know, but let’s all try to guess!

    Well, an election plays a prominent role in the third book … hence the “embellishment” on George (my caffeine hasn’t kicked in yet).

    I also read somewhere that there is a new costume designer for series 2 … the Caroline character defintely paints the local Cornwall society as nowhere near London or high society standards.

    I can’t wait for Season 2. Sunday nights feel rather bereft these days.

    Yes, I am waiting for season 2. Maybe we should send these women Bobby pins. Or hire Bobby pin forgers and create a black market for them? *she says with a straight face while chuckling inside.
    Seriously though, hope the costumes are better than last season. Maybe they could rent ones from the Duchess and Notorious Lady S.

    A spokesperson for PBS have confirmed that the US will be getting Season 2 this year but cannot give us a definite date yet. We are hoping that it may even run quite close with the UK which recently happened with Granchester.

    The hot with the dress billowing out is really coot, but all the sand and water on the bottom part of it just makes me cringe.

    You might be onto something, Daniel. But all they would need is flowers in their hair to look almost Woodstockian. You know, peace, love, freedom, etc.

    Oh Elizabeth, is that the only style you wear?

    That is the only style she can afford at the moment, thanks to Francis’ money problems.
