Fans recently got excited when news broke out that the "Poldark" Season 3 air date is set for the first Sunday of June. However, there was also much concern about the Aidan Turner drama holding its premiere on the same night as the "Britain's Got Talent" finale. Has BBC decided not to go up against Simon Cowell's talent show? Will "Poldark" Series 3 debut a little later on the same month to enjoy a competition-less broadcast?

According to Express, there have been speculations that "Poldark" Season 3 is being scheduled to premiere on June 4. Unfortunately, this would mean that the Aidan Turner drama will air on the same date as the "Britain's Got Talent" finale. Fans were quick to express support for their beloved Ross Poldark and his wife Demelza, taking to social media to announce they will skip the final fight on Simon Cowell's talent show. Nevertheless, it looks like BBC has no plans of going up against "BGT" this summer.

There are speculations that the "Poldark" Season 3 air date will be moved to mid-June to avoid any clashes with "Britain's Got Talent". Some believe that the network does not want to mess with the Simon Cowell show's audience, which has reached an astounding 10 million viewers last year. It is possible that the move to a later date will help Aidan Turner's series get more viewers.

This isn't the first time that "Poldark" Season 3 had to deal with a schedule change to avoid competition. CeleBeat has previously reported on the show moving to a summer air date so there would be no conflict with "Victoria" Season 2, which got more viewers last fall. Hopefully, BBC is making the right move with the Aidan Turner series this year. Stay tuned to CeleBeat for all the latest updates on your favorite TV shows.
