Poldark on Masterpiece returns this week for a third season of swashbuckling adventures set on the dramatic Cornish coast. The series launches Sunday, Oct. 1, with a two-hour premiere and continues through Nov. 19. But you don’t have to wait to see what lies in store for Ross, Demelza, Elizabeth and George: All eight Season 3 episodes will be available for streaming via NPT Passport at the time of the broadcast premiere. The previous two seasons of Poldark on Masterpiece, as well as related specials, are also available on Passport. Learn more about the NPT Passport member benefit here.
Meanwhile, we had a great time at the Season 3 preview event held Sept. 28 at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. Some guests received copies of The Black Moon, one of the Poldark novels by Winston Graham, and there were photos with the life-size Ross Poldark cutout. (“He looks just like my husband,” one woman commented.) A pair of devotees also brought their Lego versions of Ross and Demelza to the event.
Poldark on Masterpiece is just one of the exciting series coming to Masterpiece this fall: The Collection, a dark drama set in the postwar Parisian fashion industry, begins Oct. 8, at 9 p.m.; while Season 2 of The Durrells in Corfu begins Sunday, Oct. 15, at 7 p.m. The series conclude Nov. 19.
