ITV has released the first teaser video and image for the second series of period drama Victoria.
The teaser clip shows Queen Victoria (Jenna Coleman) and Prince Albert (Tom Hughes) at the Christening of the couple’s first child, Princess Victoria, known as Vicky.
The second series will again be written by creator and executive producer Daisy Goodwin, and viewers will see Queen Victoria face new challenges both at home and abroad.
Victoria will be figuring life out as a working mother, balancing her responsibilities as both parent and Queen. However, Prince Albert is still struggling to find a role for himself alongside his powerful wife as she returns to her duties.
Dame Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones) has also joined the cast as the Queen’s new Mistress Of The Robes, the Duchess of Bucchleuch, and Martin Compston (Line of Duty) will be making a guest appearance as social activist Dr. Robert Traill.
The eight-part series will return to ITV later this year, and ITV has also commissioned a two-hour Christmas special.
