Two new cast members will be joining “Poldark” season 3. Actors James Wilby and Esme Coy will be playing the roles of Lord Falmouth and Roswella Chynoweth respectively. Filming of the new season wrapped in February, and it is currently in the post production phase of development.

Lord Falmouth is a historical figure George Boscawen, 3rd Viscount Falmouth. In the books written by Winston Graham, on which the BBC TV series is based, he is a recurring character. He is seen as someone with great influence, and is actively involved in the parliamentary elections.

The other new character being introduced this year is Roswella Chynoweth. The Chynoweth family is one of the prominent upper-class families in Cornwall. In the books, Roswella is not a very attractive character, but is very shrewd and manipulative. The character doesn’t have much to do with Ross (Aidan Turner), but it remains to be seen how the TV series adaptation will weave her storyline into the show.

2017 has given a good start for “Poldark” Series. The show won the Best HD Drama Programme of the year at The Television and Radio Industries Club (TRIC) awards. The show also got three nominations at Royal Television Society West of England Awards for Best Drama, Best on Screen Performance and Best Cinematography.

The team behind the show wished their fans on St. Patrick’s Day. Cast member Turner is Irish, so he got a special mention from the team.

Meanwhile, Director Stephen Woolfenden has been teasing details about the progress of completing the work for the next season of the BBC TV series. In his most recent post, he revealed that they were recently doing some Automated Dialogue Replacement (ADR) in the studio. They were recording crowd sounds, so there was a lot of singing, shouting, whispering and gossiping for the scenes by a “very talented group.”

The story will continue with Ross facing new challenges. After getting his business venture in order, the protagonist may now have to focus more on his domestic life. Although he may have managed to patch things up with Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson), his connection to Elizabeth (Heida Reed) is far from over. There will be further complications with the arrival of a set of new characters.

A teaser trailer of “Poldark” season 3 has already been released by BBC. However, the producers are yet to announce the exact release date of the show. The show is set to return later this year.
