Renewed for a 2nd Season

BBC One’s returning drama series have been on exceptional form: Last Tango In Halifax, Silent Witness and Death In Paradise have all been their most successful series ever to date; while Call the Midwife is the most watched drama series of the year so far across all channels. This quarter also saw BBC One successfully launch new factual titles Eat Well For Less and the ‘Truth About…’ strand. While Poldark has been BBC One’s new Sunday night hit series, which has just been commissioned for a second series.

Charlotte Moore, Controller of BBC One, says: “It's been an outstanding start to the year for programme-makers on the channel and their ambition has been in evidence throughout. I’ve been proud to watch a BBC One at the top of its game, bursting with creativity and modernity, which has brought the nation together and sparked the national conversation.

"I want to make sure viewers feel BBC One is part of their lives and that’s about making sure there is something on BBC One for everybody. We aim to maintain that momentum and continue to move with the times and bring audiences a range of distinctive, high-quality programmes that feel relevant and reflect the diversity of modern Britain. It’s exciting to see BBC One being recognised today as the most nominated channel in this year’s BAFTA TV Awards. I can also exclusively announce that Sunday’s night new phenomenon Poldark that has captured the nations’ hearts has been commissioned for a second series. Aidan Turner will return as Ross Poldark and Eleanor Tomlinson as Demelza in a new eight-part series written by Debbie Horsfield that will cover books three and four of Winston Graham’s series.”
