The show is expected to return in early summer 2018.
And while the filming may be exciting for many fans, it was something of a nuisance for the residents of Wells in Somerset – who complained about production ‘taking over’ the town during series three filming earlier this ear.
Residents were said to be furious that filming kept them out of their own neighbourhood, with barriers put up around the area to ward off fans.
Small businesses also alleged that production has affected their trade and is stopping deliveries from being placed to their door.

Speaking in February, Julie Lloyd – who owns a cafe opposite where filming took place, told Somerset Live: ‘From a business point of view it’s not great – we don’t get a lot of benefit from it, but it affects us a lot.
‘We’ve had difficulties getting a delivery through today and this kind of thing happens a lot in Wells – there is no compensation considering the high rates we pay.’
Meanwhile, the Poldark family looked to have moved on from the dramas of last series, which saw Demelza seek solace in the arms of naval office Lieutenant Hugh Armitage, played by Burberry model Josh Whitehouse and frolic with him in some sand dunes while her husband headed into battle.
There may have been an element of revenge to the smooch, as it came after Demelza was informed that Ross had only recently kissed Elizabeth Warleggan, his first love and former fiancé.

The secret affair followed an impassioned declaration of love by former prisoner of war Lt Armitage, who has been pursuing Demelza over the last few weeks in secret and who asked her if she would make love with him after revealing his eyesight was deteriorating.
Viewers saw the scorned wife returning home to Poldark’s bed after her tryst with Lt Armitage.
Both looked shaken and slightly ashamed as he took her into his arms – knowing (pretty much) where she’d been, who with, and what they’d been doing but still venturing: ‘Demelza may I ask…’
