Victoria writer Daisy Goodwin previously revealed: “[Season 3] will start in 1848 which was a hugely dramatic and eventful time for both the royal family and Europe, with revolutions on the continent and uncertainty around the monarchy. Viewers can expect more drama than ever before in the third series.”

Executive producer Damien Timmer added that the new season will be “filled to the brim with royal scandals, political skirmishes and constitutional crises.”

Jenna Coleman has been busy filming the BBC’s new TV adaptation of Helen FitzGerald’s novel The Cry in Australia and Scotland.

The first season of Victoria is available now on DVD.

Season 3 is expected to air in the UK this autumn on ITV and on Masterpiece on PBS in early 2019 in the US.
