A popular PBS series that has yet to premiere its second season has already received a pickup for season three. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Poldark,” a British production airing on PBS’s “Masterpiece,” was renewed by the BBC. Season two is due later this year.
“Production company Mammoth Screen — also behind upcoming ITV drama ‘Victoria’ — confirmed Wednesday that writer Debbie Horsfield is penning further episodes, which will be filmed later this year for transmission in 2017,” THR reports.
Elizabeth Kilgarriff, who executive produces for the BBC, said: “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’s brilliant storytelling and the passion of the Mammoth team that ‘Poldark’ will be returning for a third series, with yet more twists and turns for these much-loved characters.”
Series star Aidan Turner has been getting buzz as a likely replacement for Daniel Craig in the James Bond movies.
