Ross Poldark is due back on our TV screens in 2018 as his epic tale continues. Season 4 will draw on the final third of Winston Graham’s sixth Poldark book The Four Swans and all of book seven, The Angry Tide


Scriptwriter Debbie Horsfield told “I think it has held its own over the summer and so I am guessing that – and it is a guess – that there’s no reason to change that. The thing about the English weather is it’s so terrible and it’s still raining outside anyway so people stay in to watch TV. Everyone’s pleased with the viewing figures and so many people are watching."

Poldark season four is due to air on the BBC in 2018

8. Outlander - Diana Gabaldon

The fourth season of the time-travel drama will take inspiration from Diana Gabaldon's Drums of Autumn, the fourth novel in her historical fantasy series. You can find out what to expect from it here.
