Plot Synopsis

VICTORIA is an eight-hour drama series that follows Victoria from the time she becomes Queen in 1837 at the age of 18 through her relationship with Lord Melbourne, her first prime minister and intimate friend, and her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert. Famous for her candor and spirit, she was the first woman who seemed to have it all: a passionate marriage, nine children and the job of being queen of the world's most important nation. Her often tumultuous reign lasted for 63 years. PBS aired the U.S. premiered of this series on Sunday, January 15, 2017 at 9pm (check local listings). On Sunday, January 14, 2018 from 9-11pm (check local listings), PBS aired the U.S. premiere of the seven-episode second season of VICTORIA. Joining the cast in the new season is legendary actress Dame Diana Rigg, who plays the Duchess of Buccleuch, the court's new Mistress of the Robes -- a fount of old-fashioned good sense for the queen, who is now in the throes of motherhood. Season 2 finds Victoria adapting to motherhood after the birth of her first child, a daughter (to the disappointment of many). Meanwhile, the disaster of the Anglo-Afghan War unfolds abroad, and the catastrophic Irish potato famine begins to wreak havoc. In other foreign affairs, a royal state visit to France is in the offing. Most intriguing to Prince Albert is the budding Industrial Revolution, which is now sweeping England. There is Charles Babbage's mechanical calculator, a collaborative project with the bewitching Ada Lovelace, daughter of the scandalous Lord Byron. Then there is William Fothergill Cooke's miraculous electrical telegraph, not to mention Marc Isambard Brunel's daring -- and dangerous -- Thames Tunnel.
PBS debuted the Season 2 finale of VICTORIA on Sunday, February 25, 2018 at 9pm (check local listings). In the season ender, "Comfort and Joy," Albert is intent on re-creating the Christmastime joy he remembers from his youth. Victoria has more than one surprise visitor and finds herself threatened by a relative. Meanwhile, the festive spirit sparks romantic tension throughout the palace. Two months earlier -- on December 12, 2017 -- ITV and PBS renewed VICTORIA for a third season.
