We haven't even seen the third series of Poldark on our screens yet, but it's been confirmed that a fourth series of the BBC drama is officially on the way.

The exciting news came out of the BFI & Radio Times Television Festival's Poldark panel today (April 8) with the main man himself announcing it.

Aidan Turner, who plays the brooding Captain Ross Poldark, told the panel attendees the news, but unfortunately didn't confirm whether or not he'd be whipping his shirt off this time.

Although, seeing as the panel revealed the show will start filming again this September, maybe it's best Poldark keeps his shirt on at that time of year.

The BBC recently revealed that Poldark's third series is getting an earlier premiere than usual, skipping the usual autumn premiere and moving it up to the summer instead, meaning Poldark series three should be with us as soon as June.

And it's good news for show star Turner too, who's previously said he'd be happy to stick around for many more series of the show, just so long as the quality is as high as we've come to expect it to be.

"The standard on Poldark is so high and you need to keep it high," he said. "But if it continues to be where it's at, I can't see a reason why we wouldn't continue."

The series is based on Winston Graham's novel series, which features 12 books in total. And considering the third series will take us through books 5 and 6 (The Black Moon and The Four Swans), it looks like we're pretty much in it for the long haul here.

Watch the first teaser for Poldark season three below:
