UK viewers won’t have to wait too much longer to see Victoria’s third series, thankfully.
For the first time ever, the regal drama is currently airing in the US as part of PBS’s Masterpiece programming block before it even has a UK premiere date, which has ticked off fans here at home.
ITV was at first hesitant to update viewers on when it would be bringing them the new episodes, but does now have a firm timeline of when Her Royal Highness Jenna Coleman will be back on screens.
The channel’s boss Kevin Lygo has confirmed to the Radio Times that Victoria will definitely return “in the spring or summer”. Asked why there was such a long delay in transmission, Lygo would only say: “We have to get it right and put it up against the right things on the BBC and elsewhere.”
We’re sure fans will be thrilled with that reasoning! Still, at least there’s solid news on when Victoria and Albert’s epic romance will continue playing out.
The third series picks up in “turbulent times” for the Queen and her royal court in 1848 as her advisors warn her to leave London to avoid the possibility of an uprising.
