ITV Orders Victoria To Return For Second Series

ITV has announced that Victoria, which averaged 7.7 million viewers for its first series, has commissioned a second series from screenwriter Daisy Goodwin and production company Mammoth Screen.

ITV Director of Television, Kevin Lygo, said: “Mammoth and Daisy Goodwin have brought the characters so vividly to life in this series, and we’re thrilled with the reception for Victoria. We’re pleased to be able to confirm that Jenna Coleman and Tom Hughes will return to continue the story on ITV.”

Daisy Goodwin said: “Even though she reigned in the 19th Century, Victoria is a heroine for our times. In the next series she faces the very modern dilemma of how to juggle children with her husband and her job. As Victoria will discover, it’s hard to be a wife, a mother and ruler of the most powerful nation on earth!”

The first series of Victoria will premiere on Masterpiece on PBS in the United States on 15th January 2017.
