Poldark Series was written and directed under the historical drama genre, based on the novels that have the same title by Winston and Turner A. being starring in the lead role. The series was set between 1781 and 1801, and it follows the returning of the title character to Cornwall after the war in America that happened in 1783 (American War Independence).
After the series was written, Debbie adopted it for the BBC, and different directors directed it all along its run. It has been set in the English language, and its original country is the United Kingdom.
Is Poldark Season 6 Renewed or Cancelled?
Due to the anticipation and anxiety in season 6 of the Poldark release, rumors have that season 6 will not be aired. Since the show has been on air since 2015, the five seasons have been spectacularly successful, having a brilliant storyline. The show came to an end in 2019.
Before the premiere of the fifth season in 2018, BBC announced that season 5 would be the last installment of the series. The fifth plot covered many things that were not discussed in the novel, making the season pretty original. Although its cancellation, fans are hopeful someday that BBC will have to reconsider and bring back to light Poldark Season 6.
During the airing of the last episode of the fifth season, the series wrapped up the narrative in 1801, that is, nine years before events of the eighth novel, Stranger from the Sea. The show has come to an end and definitely isn’t good news to the fans since there will be no more seasons of the Poldark.
Release Date of Poldark Season 6
Although the season has ended, the fans did not really expect the hope someday that the BBC will revisit the Novel and make another season. The BBC networks still have content, which means they can easily make two seasons from collecting all the content from the five books.
Unfortunately, BBC and the directors decided that the show will no longer proceed.

The Plot of the Poldark Season 6
Poldark TV series is based on two genres that have a unique setting; the historical drama genre and romance genre, and its setting was based on Poldark Novels.
Season one took place in 1781, and it was in 1783 when Captain Ross Poldark returned from the ongoing American War of Independence to Nampara, his home. His family and friends thought that Captain would be dead since it had been three years since he went to the war. Upon his return, he realizes that Joshua’s father is dead and the estate is in ruins, plus it is in debt.
Additionally, the woman he had hoped to marry is now engaged to Captain’s cousin. On top of that, all the property he had been allowed to inherit has deteriorated.
In the late 1700s, that’s when conflicts among rich and poor came along, and it was the time when fishermen did not have enough catch. However, it was the same period that prices of food and rent went high, and since the prices of copper went low, the mines had to be shut down.
Throughout the five seasons, there is difficulty in family issues, marriage, losing loved ones, the birth of children, and wars.
