Poldark’s fifth and final season is almost upon us, with Ross, Demelza and the rest of the show’s beloved characters returning on 14 July. We know it will be the last instalment of the hit period drama and judging by a trailer released by the BBC, it’s set to be a dramatic one.

Ahead of episode one, the channel has shared some first look images depicting some well-loved characters as well as new faces.

They don’t give too much away but here are the images and what they could suggest about the upcoming series.

Fan favourites

Images shared of Ross (Aidan Turner), Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson), George Warleggan (Jack Farthing), Dwight Enys (Luke Norris) and Drake Carne (Harry Richardson) all have something in common – wistful staring. Expect lots of drama and heartache from this brooding lot.

New faces

Geoffrey Charles, Elizabeth’s first child who’s now an orphan, is now significantly older and played by actor Freddie Wise. Now he’s a young man, will he come to blows with George, who was always so cruel to him? Or reconcile their relationship?

Ned and Kitty Despard (Vincent Regan and Kerri Mclean) are the show’s new couple on the block and set to really shake things up.

Also set to make waves are father-daughter duo Ralph Hanson (Peter Sullivan) and Cecily (Lily Dodsworth-Evans). Again, if looks could kill, right?
