It’s almost time for Victoria to return to the screens.
So close in fact that ITV expelled a new full-length trailer for the second series last week, giving us a glimpse of what to design from the British drama, which stars Jenna Coleman as Queen Victoria.
The first eight-part series followed Victoria’s ascent to the bench at the proposal age of 18, depicting the severe initial years of her power and courtship with the brooding Prince Albert.
Series two is set to air this autumn and will continue the story of the immature sovereign as she faces fresh trials and tribulations both at home and in her duties to her country.
With new expel members, combined play and even some-more impracticable set and dress designs, here’s all you need to know about the new series.
When will Victoria series 2 return?
ITV announced a second series renovation back in Sep last year, before the first series had even concluded.
As the new trailer confirms, Victoria will return this autumn for another eight episodes, with a two-hour Christmas Special after in the year.
We’re still watchful on an accurate air date but the show is expected to make a quip in late Aug or early September.
The first series began on Aug 28.
If we’re going by the first series’ schedule, it should once again air on Sunday nights at 9pm on ITV.
What partial of Victoria’s power will the tract cover?
The first series covered the years between Queen Victoria’s ascent in 1837 and the birth of her first child in 1840.
Series two is set to locate up with Victoria and Albert 6 weeks after the series one finale, as the new relatives are bettering to having a child while sophistry their particular responsibilities.
It will be set in the 1840s, which saw Victoria give birth a serve 5 times after her first daughter was innate (and another 3 times during the next decade).
This time duration saw a good fast and some-more domestic disturbance in Britain, in further to successive assassination attempts on the Queen.
What else can we design from the stability story?
ITV has pronounced that the new series will see Victoria confronting ‘the very difficult quandary of how to juggle children with her husband and her job.’
The immature sovereign famously hated being pregnant, while Albert was seen as a healthy when it came to fatherhood, so series two will try the hurdles both face with the new further to their family.
Victoria will have to change being a mom and a wife with statute a republic and showing a joined front to a country that’s full of misery and deprivation.
In 1845 there was a Potato Blight in Ireland, which caused the death of over a million people and led to Victoria being called The Famine Queen.
She donated thousands of pounds to the service efforts and this is likely to be partial of the stability storyline in series two.
Which new and returning faces will be starring in it?
Jenna Coleman and Tom Hughes are returning as the appreciated lovebirds Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
Pictures shared by expel members on Twitter suggested that David Oakes (Albert’s hermit Prince Ernest) and Nell Hudson (Victoria’s stately dresser Miss Skerrett) will also be back for turn two.
Given Skerrett was concerned in an unused romantic storyline with Ferdinand Kingsley’s stately chef, Francatelli, there’s every possibility Kingsley will be back too.
Alex Jennings (King Leopold), Nigel Lindsay (politician Sir Robert Peel) and Daniela Holtz (Baroness Lehzen) are also set to return.
Rufus Sewell’s return as the constant Lord Melbourne hasn’t been reliable but we’ve all got the fingers crossed for that one.
As for new expel members, the matchless Diana Rigg (who recently played the fearsome Olenna Tyrell in Game Of Thrones) is joining the arriving deteriorate as the Queen’s Mistress of the Robes, the Duchess of Buccleuch.
The new series will also star Martin Compston (Line Of Duty) and Denis Lawson (New Tricks), as supporter Dr Robert Traill and the Duke of Atholl respectively.
Any some-more teasers from the trailer?
‘Do you remember kissing me before we were married? Everything was easier then.’
The new trailer shows Victoria struggling with motherhood and monarchy, oblivious over the easier (if you can call them simple) days when she first fell in adore with Albert.
Things have positively got a lot some-more difficult given then, with the trailer divulgence copiousness of play both inside and outward the house walls.
Expect impracticable stately events, brave outside pursuits, romance, dancing, babies, pleasing sets and Diana Rigg just generally being amazing.
