The second season is expected to air on Masterpiece on PBS in early 2018 and 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.

Several new cast additions for Season 2 have been announced, including Emerald Fennell (Call the Midwife), Martin Compston (Line of Duty), and Dame Diana Rigg (The Avengers).
