Production for Poldark Season 3 is currently ongoing at Cornwall. While the cast and crew are busy filming Season 3, the rumor mills have also been busy speculating about whether Aidan Turner will return after this season. It is a notion worth considering, especially if the series will follow the novels.
The show is based on Winston Graham’s Poldark novels. There are 12 books in the series, with the first seven books revolving around Ross Poldark, while the remaining books focused on the descendants of the characters in the previous novels.
Upcoming Season of Poldark Last for Aidan Turner?
There have been rumors that Poldark Season 3 will run for five to six seasons. It will definitely take the network more than another season to wrap up the series, particularly as Season 3 will be adapting The Black Moon and the first half of The Four Swans. It is quite a departure from the previous seasons, which adapted two books each.
It would logically take one more season to finish the first seven books of the Poldark series. The big question now is whether Turner will return to reprise his role as Ross for Poldark Season 4. One big concern is that the character would be in his mid-50s by then, and it may be difficult to pull off the aging a bit.
There is also the question of Turner’s schedule. The Irish actor has been getting meatier roles lately and is also rumored to be the next James Bond. Roger Moore even thinks he could be the perfect Bond. If he does land that gig, then he might be too busy to continue working on the series.
However, as Digital Spy reported, fans must first remember how it is not true that the franchise was picked up for five seasons. But with enough materials from the novel, and Turner’s shot to fame, it might do so.
In line with this, the actor said “If it continues to be where it’s at, I can’t see a reason why we wouldn’t continue.” But of course, there are few obstacles in his way. “There’s a big time jump between two of the books and Ross gets older – and I can’t pull off mid-50s!” he added. “So I don’t know what will happen.”
These are all speculations at the moment. What is guaranteed is that fans will see Aidan Turner and the rest of the cast reprise their roles in Poldark Season 3.
