The third season of "Poldark" is already expected to premiere in fall, at around the same time as Series 2. However, there are speculations that the "Poldark" Season 3 air date could get moved up much earlier. Is it possible that BBC One wants to avoid a clash with ITV's "Victoria" Season 2? After all, Aidan Turner's costar Eleanor Tomlinson has already expressed disappointment that their show aired at the same time as Jenna Coleman's series.

Eleanor Tomlinson has recently spoken up about working with Aidan Turner on "Poldark" Season 3, which she promises will have more challenges for Ross and Demelza (via YouTube). According to Radio Times, the actress was also asked how she felt about Series 2 airing at the same time as "Victoria" Series 1 on iTV. Tomlinson was quick to say that it was "a real shame that they came out at the same time." Although the real-life Demelza admitted that the programming certainly "split the audience", her own series still "pulled through" in the end.

But is it possible that BBC One wouldn't want the same thing to happen this year? "Victoria" Season 2 is already expected to premiere later this year. However, Radio Times has previously reported that the show's producers Mammoth Screen might be hoping that "Poldark" Season 3 gets an earlier air date in spring. There are speculations that Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson's show will be moved up to a May premiere to avoid any clashes with Jenna Coleman's period drama.

The "Poldark" Season 3 air date has not yet been announced so it is best to take all speculations with a grain of salt. Hopefully, Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson will be reunited on the small screen ahead of the "Victoria" Season 2 premiere so audiences wouldn't need to be divided this year.
