Costume drama fans have a lot to look forward to this Fall. Poldark is coming back for its highly anticipated third season in October, alongside a second season of heartwarming period drama The Durrells in Corfu. But that’s not all – splashy drama The Collection is also slated to debut on PBS’ Masterpiece this October, adding a dash of high fashion and scandalous intrigue to our Sunday nights.

Enjoy Poldark while you can, folks, because the period drama’s days could be numbered.  Star Aidan Turner indicated that the popular series might not continue past its (as yet still-unconfirmed) fifth season.

During an interview with WWD, Turner was asked about how long he thought the show might run. His answer indicated that the period drama definitely has an end date on the horizon.  (Granted, that horizon is a ways away at present. But, still.) 

PBS Confirms 'Victoria' Season 2 Will Air in January 2018

It’s official: The highly-anticipated second season of popular period drama Victoria will premiere in January 2018 on Masterpiece.

Victoria’s first season was quite a success here in the U.S., clocking in at over 16.2 million viewers. That’s the second highest-rated PBS drama in 20 years – second, of course, only to the mega-popular Downton Abbey. So it probably shouldn’t surprise anyone that Victoria is getting the exact same scheduling treatment Downton did.
