DEADLINE – Jenna Coleman’s Victoria may have already ascended to the throne and married Prince Albert but ITV’s royal drama shows no sign of slowing after the UK broadcaster ordered a third season of the big-budget series.

The new season will follow the next chapter in the monarch’s eventful life and will see Coleman and Tom Hughes, who plays Albert, both return. ITV-owned Mammoth Screen will produce the series for ITV and PBS’ Masterpiece. It will follow a feature-length episode, which will air on Christmas Day.

The second season averaged over 4M viewers for ITV, down slightly on the first season, but is still one of the commercial broadcaster’s most consistent, and most discussed, dramas. Creator Daisy Goodwin, who previously ran Sony-owned production company Silver River before she created the royal thriller, said that season three will begin in 1848, a “hugely dramatic and eventful” time for the royals as revolutions across Europe created uncertainty around the monarchy. “Viewers can expect more drama than ever before in the third series,” she added.

Victoria was recommissioned by ITV’s Head of Drama and is exec produced by Mammoth Screen boss Damien Timmer and Masterpiece’s Rebecca Eaton. ITV Studios Global Entertainment, which has sold the series to over 150 countries around the world, will continue to distribute globally.

Hill said: “We’re delighted that the nation has taken Victoria to its hearts. Filled with romance, political crises and family drama, Daisy Goodwin’s scripts bring this fascinating part of history to life so vividly and we look forward to regaling audiences with the next part of the illustrious Queen’s reign.”

Timmer added: “Jenna Coleman and Tom Hughes shine as Victoria and Albert and it’s an honour to have them back for a third series, which covers a tumultuous period in our country’s history, filled to the brim with royal scandals, political skirmishes and constitutional crises, as new historical figures enter the saga to challenge Victoria and Albert as never before.” (source)

INSTYLE US – For Jenna Coleman, playing the queen in PBS’s Masterpiece series Victoria certainly has its perks. “I’ve gotten pretty comfortable in a tiara, I suppose,” says the 31-year-old with a laugh. “But the first couple of weeks of shooting were bizarre because you step on set and suddenly you’re sat on a throne and people are curtsying.”

Royal court etiquette isn’t the only thing Coleman had to get used to for the show, which returns on January 14. Her restrictive wardrobe was also an adjustment. “After seven months of filming, I wanted to throw my corset in the bin,” she says. “You’re forced to walk around so demurely when you wear one, and I honestly don’t know how women did it. They wore so many layers too. Each dress basically has a big duvet underneath.”

That’s not to say Coleman rejects all fashion trends from Victoria. She favors baubles inspired by the queen’s namesake era—her favorite is an Annina Vogel ring, which was a gift from her family on her 30th birthday—as well as “really high collars, lacy shirts, and ruffles.” When she’s not in costume, she opts for tried-and-true Brit brands such as Burberry and Erdem, but she faces the same #petiteproblems as the 4-foot-11-inch monarch. “There’s so much that I’d love to wear, but the proportions aren’t always right,” says Coleman, who is 5 foot 2. “You really have to know what works for your frame when you’re short.”

She may be close in height to the former ruler—she even visited Buckingham Palace to see Queen Victoria’s throne, which was “so tiny, it was almost miniature”—but certain physical features separate the two. “My eyes are brown, so once I put my blue contact lenses in, that’s when I really feel like her,” says Coleman. “It’s amazing what just changing the eye color does.” She’s also grown accustomed to donning a fake baby bump. “Season 2 is about the early part of Victoria and Albert’s marriage, when their honeymoon period is interrupted by [having] many children,” she says. “She keeps getting pregnant and becomes resentful. Tension also develops because Albert wants to rule.”

Of course, Victoria’s famous moxie never allows that to happen, and some of that brio has rubbed off on Coleman. “Victoria was so impulsive and would say exactly what she thought,” says Coleman. “Playing her definitely has made me less apologetic and more assertive, but God help me if I pick up any more of her habits!” (source)
