Poldark returns Sunday, September 25th, 2016 with a 2-hour premiere starting at 8:00 p.m on WCVE PBS / WHTJ PBS. In 18th century Cornwall, times are as tough as the rocky shoreline: unemployment, hunger, and sickness are widespread among the working class, while the wealthy landowners prosper. Only one man dares to defy the status quo, and he is behind bars.
For those suffering from “Downton Abbey” withdrawal, missing their weekly dose of the joys and travails of the Crawley family and their servants, despair no longer. PBS has scheduled a binge-worthy Labor Day weekend marathon of all six seasons of the top PBS drama of all time, the most popular series in Masterpiece’s 45-year history and one of the most-watched dramas on American television.
Shaun Evans returns for a third season of the popular series as the young Endeavour Morse, before his signature red Jaguar but with his deductive powers already running in high gear. In four new films, Endeavour must deal with the aftermath of the tragic events that left him languishing in prison, and his senior officer DI Fred Thursday (Roger Allam) with a life-threatening injury.
Watch Masterpiece: Endeavour Season 3 “Ride” June 19 at 9:00 p.m. on WCVE PBS/WHTJ PBS. Check listings for additional air-times.
One of the world’s most remarkable actors brings a stirring detective series to an end as Kenneth Branagh (My Week with Marilyn, Henry V, Hamlet) plays his last season as Inspector Kurt Wallander, based on the novels of Henning Mankell.

The Vicar and Cop are back! Grantchester Season 2 starring James Norton and Robson Green will air Sunday, March 27-May 1, 2016 at 9:00 p.m. ET on WCVE PBS / WHTJ PBS.
