Because we all cannot wait to see the new season of Poldark – and Andrew Gower as James Hadfield! – we couldn’t help ourselves and here’s a little speculation!
Previously, we thought we might get S5 as soon as 9 June but that date seems unlikely now as the BFI screening is scheduled only 4 days earlier, on 5 June.
So where does that leave us with Poldark‘s new season?
From 19 May until 7 July, Poldark‘s usual time-slot on Sunday nights 9pm on BBC One is taken by new show Gentleman Jack. Which means Poldark could take over its rightful place on 14 July! A date just over a month after the exclusive BFI screening does seem likely. So let’s start the countdown till 14 July and hope for the best!
ETA: Fixed the number of episodes of Gentleman Jack and updated the speculated air date for Poldark.
Very sad news reached us today. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Andrew Gower and Stephen Walters unfortunately had to cancel the screening of their short film Humpty Fu*king Dumpty, scheduled for 10 June 2019 in London.
They send their apologies and thank the fans for their support.
We’re gutted about the news and hope we can report more positive news about Humpty Fu*king Dumpty soon again.
For now we can only send both Andrew and Stephen positive vibes and well wishes, and the reassurance of our unwavering love and support!
The BFI (British Film Institute) has announced the date for a special screening event for the first episode of Poldark‘s fifth and final season. You will be able to see the episode and attend the following Q&A with confirmed guests Aidan Turner (Ross Poldark),
Jack Farthing (George Warleggan)*, Luke Norris (Dwight Enys), and writer Debbie Horsfield.
[ETA: As of 10 May 2019, Jack Farthing unfortunately had to cancel his appearance at the event. In his stead, actress Ellise Chappell (Morwenna Carne) will attend.]
Booking for this special event opens on 17 May 2019 at 11:30am. You can book tickets here.
The event itself takes place on Wednesday, 5 June 2019 at 6:15pm at BFI Southbank (Belvedere Road, South Bank, London SE1 8XT).
The description on the website reads as follows:
It’s a new century, but the past casts a long shadow over Cornwall, and when an old friend needs help, Ross is compelled to challenge the establishment and question his loyalties to king and country.
Is it just us or does this “old friend” sound like one James Hadfield (played by our Andrew Gower)? We sure hope so!
10 June 2019 !!!
Mark your calendars: This is the date the world will see Andrew‘s and Stephen Walters‘ short film Humpty Fu*king Dumpty for the first time. As the Humpty Dumpty Twitter account announced today, the premiere will take place on this day at the Curzon Soho in London.
They also announced a contest: reply to their tweet and win tickets for the premiere!
Go tweet and re-tweet! #TeamHumptyDumpty
ETA: On 3 May 2019, Andrew and Stephen sadly had to announce the cancellation of the screening. We’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear about any new development!
