Series overview:
 
Following critical acclaim and record ratings in both the UK and America, this summer sees the return of ITV’s hugely popular drama, Victoria, produced by Mammoth Screen.
 
Once again written by creator and executive producer, Daisy Goodwin, the brand new eight-part season will see Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who, Me Before You) and Tom Hughes (Paula, The Game) reprise their roles as Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, as they face new challenges both at home and abroad.
 
Resuming one month after the first series ended, the new season establishes Victoria as a working mother, learning to balance her responsibilities as both parent and Queen. However, Prince Albert is still struggling to find a role for himself alongside his powerful wife as she returns to her duties, intent on proving that she can be both a mother and dedicated Queen.
