‘Victoria’ fans are going to have a long wait for Season 4

Jenna Coleman has revealed that Victoria will be taking “a break” from our screens.

The third season of ITV’s historical drama series aired earlier this year.

Victoria creator Daisy Goodwin has confirmed that a fourth season is being developed.

The writer has teased ominously that it’ll be “an absolute humdinger, because… well, you can go to Wikipedia to find out!”

However, it now looks like fans aren’t going to be seeing Season 4 anytime soon.

Former Doctor Who star Jenna Coleman, who has played Queen Victoria since 2016, recently revealed that the future of the series is a slightly up in the air.

The actress told Graham Norton’s BBC Radio 2 show: “It’s definitely going to take a break, bit of a breather and then we’re working out… there’s a lot of conversations, do you start at the Crimean War, or do you start later?”

She added: “I mean there’s too much story, unless I literally did commit until I am 63.”

Coleman also discussed the rumours that Victoria will follow the example set by The Crown and replace the entire cast with older actors as they move into the latter stages of the Queen’s reign.

She commented: “I’ve currently got seven children in the show, so there’s definitely a point where it becomes not realistic anymore. I’ve just caught up with her age and my age.”

The star then joked: “We’re beginning ‘jowl conversations’. We either jump cut or we need to get those jowls in the grain.”

Season 3 is available on DVD on Amazon.
