The 19th century is coming back to the 21st as another season of PBS’s hit show “Victoria” will be back on January 13th of next year. It will premiere at 9 / 8 central time on Masterpiece Classic. The show portrays the true story of Queen Victoria’s reign over England throughout the timespan of 67 years.
Jenna Coleman, who is most famous for her role playing the 11th Doctor’s companion, Clara Oswald, on BBC’s “Doctor Who” plays the leading female lead in this Victorian-era Masterpiece drama. Tom Hughes, who is Coleman’s current partner, will take the role as Prince Albert.
It has been said that a majority of the characters are to be recast, according to Town and Country Magazine. The story will resume in 1848, a year full of social and political rebellion around the United Kingdom and for most of Europe, at that time. The unpredictable situations for the royal family will be a main focus for the upcoming season.
A trailer of the anticipated new season has been released on YouTube.
