Poldark star makes surprising admission about season five

Season five will be the show's last

Emmy Griffiths

The fifth and final season of Poldark is in full swing, and Jack Farthing, who plays George in the show, has admitted that he thinks it is right that the show is ending with season five. Chatting to The Independent, he explained: "It's good that Poldark is ending when people are still interested in it – that's obviously a privileged position to be in, because things can go on for too long. Isn't it amazing when a show like Fleabag says, 'Right, we're done'? It's so refreshing, it's classy and it makes you appreciate the material that's there."

Fans have been quick to discuss George's storylines

He continued: "I'm glad that Poldark's ending in a similar position, and it's nice to end on a series that feels more Debbie's [Horsfield] than Winston's [Graham] in a way." He previously opened up about the ending of the show on This Morning, explaining: "I managed to persuade them to give me this beautiful black suit which I'll never wear! Maybe for Christmas day, or a costume party!" Chatting about how the show would end, he added: "There's obviously stuff I can't say but there are types of resolutions. There is a satisfying climax to those characters."

Another person added: "Never in all my life did I think I would be crying over George Warleggan but [expletive]. Jack Farthing is phenomenal this season and we're only three episodes in." A third person tweeted: "What an amazing episode of #Poldark!!! It had everything, and was a total rollercoaster of emotions. Need to throw all the awards at Jack Farthing and Luke Norris right now."
