           In season one, a teenager is crowned Queen Victoria, navigates scandal, corruption, and political intrigues of the Court. In Season 2, Jenna Coleman returns as the young queen who wants it all—romance, power, an heir, and personal freedom. Joining the cast in the new season is legendary actress Dame Diana Rigg, who plays the Duchess of Buccleuch, the court’s new Mistress of the Robes.

          Tom Hughes reprises his role as the queen’s dashing consort, Prince Albert, and Rufus Sewell returns as the smoldering Lord Melbourne. In the first episode, new mother Victoria is impatient to return to the business of ruling a nation, while Albert attempts to protect her from the increasingly desperate news regarding British soldiers in Afghanistan.


          More good news for the 16 million plus viewers who tuned in to season one. ITV and MASTERPIECE on PBS have announced a third season of “Victoria” is in the offing.
