Watch: “Victoria” Season 2 First Look Sees the Monarch Embracing Motherhood

24 May 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

“Victoria”

In the inaugural season of “Victoria,” audiences saw the titular young queen (Jenna Coleman) as she settled into her life as a monarch. Victoria was coronated, broke away from her mother (Catherine Flemming), distanced herself from Lord Melbourne (Rufus Sewell), cultivated her own methods as a ruler, and married Prince Albert (Tom Hughes). A new clip for the show’s second season suggests that it will focus on how Victoria integrates motherhood into her royal responsibilities.

The first look of the ITV and PBS series’ sophomore season depicts the baptism of Victoria and Albert’s first child, Victoria Adelaide Mary Louisa, who was born in the first season finale. According to Variety, the clip was released May 22 in honor of Victoria Day, the anniversary of the queen’s birth.

Series creator Daisy Goodwin will again serve as writer and Ep on the upcoming season, which includes eight episodes and a two-hour Christmas special. The new season will pick up a few weeks after Princess Victoria’s birth. Diana Rigg (“Game of Thrones”), Martin Compston (“Line of Duty”), and Bruno Wolkowitch (“Spin”) are joining the cast. “Rigg will play the queen’s Mistress of the Robes, Compston will guest star as social activist Dr. Robert Traill, and Wolkowitch will portray French King Louis Philippe,” Variety writes.

Mammoth Screen’s Kate McKerrell and Damien Timmer exec produce the historical drama, as does Masterpiece’s Rebecca Eaton. Paul Frift produces.

Season 1 of “Victoria” was ITV’s highest-rated drama of 2016.

Season 2 of “Victoria” is currently in production. It will air on ITV in the UK this fall and on PBS in the U.S. in early 2018.

‘The Man In The High Castle’ Stars On “The Stories That Societies Tell Themselves”

1 May 2017 2:08 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

“For me, what's interesting is the stories that societies tell themselves—and that people tell themselves—in order to live, in order to get on, in order to survive, stories which make them the central figure, the hero, the victim,” The Man in the High Castle star Rufus Sewell said Friday night, at an Amazon panel moderated by Deadline’s Damon Wise. “It's a process that we go by.” A dystopian series loosely based on the novel of the same name by an icon and pillar of… »

Victoria season 2 air date announced

18 April 2017 5:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Kirsten Howard Aug 17, 2017

Series 2 of ITV's Victoria will be back sooner than we thought. Next Sunday, in fact...

Fans of Victoria can rest easy, as a brand new series of ITV's historical smash hit will be arriving next Sunday, the 27th of August.

See related  Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 pressing ahead Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 director confirmed Gemma Arterton interview: Prince Of Persia, James Bond and CGI snakes

It'll be competing with the BBC's Strike in a 9.05pm slot that night and, having had to deal with the might of Poldark during its first series, this will surely be another duel of royal proportions.

It's fair to say that ITV probably didn't expect the first season of Victoria to be quite as popular as it was. But the channel certainly renewed the hell out of it after their dramatised tales of the monarch's early days earned up to »

Elsa Pataky’s Career Makes It Clear She’s So Much More Than Just Chris Hemsworth’s Wife

13 April 2017 12:25 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Everett Collection The Fate of the Furious is full of fun cameos from past characters in the Fast and Furious franchise, but few are as memorable as the brief scenes featuring Elena, played by actress Elsa Pataky. As you might recall, she first enters the world of Dominic "Dom" Toretto (Vin Diesel) and co. in Fast Five as a Brazilian police officer helping Agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) find and arrest Dom and Brian (Paul Walker). She soon strikes up a romance with Dom, and although it doesn't last, she pops up in Fast & Furious 6 and Furious 7 and has a small but important role in the eighth film. For anyone who sees it and wonders if they've seen her somewhere other than alongside Dom, we have a few ideas. First of all, you might have noticed that Pataky is currently living "a dream life" with husband Chris Hemsworth. »

Victoria Season 1 Review

15 January 2017 1:55 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three episodes was provided prior to broadcast.

One of the downsides to living in the new Golden Age of Television is that some shows, decent in their own right, will inevitably suffer in comparison to the best of the best.

I fear that may be the fate of Victoria, which has its U.S. premiere later tonight. The show presents inevitable comparisons to Netflix’s The Crown in its tale of one of England’s most famous queens, at times rising to the challenge of its competitor, and at other times, falling a bit short.

The series opens at the very beginning of Victoria’s famous reign. King William is dead and his niece, Alexandrina Victoria (Jenna Coleman), a girl of eighteen, will ascend to the throne. She’s lived a sheltered and inexperienced life at Kensington, reared under the strict oversight of her mother, the Duchess of Kent (Catherine Flemming »

Dubois Records, in cooperation with Mammoth Screen and Masterpiece will release the Victoria – Original Soundtrack digitally on all music streaming platforms to coincide with the Us release of the television series on PBS this coming weekend.

Victoria was first aired on ITV in the UK on August 28, 2016.

Phipps says: “The idea was to give Victoria a dynamic voice, an explosive theme through which we could rejoice in her strength & courage. The Mediaeval Baebes were the perfect sound for this. With one foot in the classical world & one in the commercial, they gave Victoria the mixture of refinement & attitude I was after.”

TV Review: ‘Victoria’ on PBS Masterpiece

11 January 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“We must not let in daylight upon magic,” British essayist Walter Bagehot once wrote of the English monarchy, and Queen Victoria in particular.

“Victoria,” which is based on a novel about the famous monarch, doesn’t just bathe its subjects in golden daylight; there’s plenty of evocative candlelight, too. “Victoria” depicts life behind the scenes in a series of well-appointed palaces and lush gardens, but would-be Bagehots have nothing to fear: Admirers of Queen Victoria could hardly hope for a more flattering portrait. The problem with that romantic — and romanticized — approach is that this Masterpiece miniseries can get so bogged down in admiration for its core character that it begins to meander, and it often sands the edges off conflicts surrounding the early years of the young queen’s reign.

The result is a miniseries that’s easy on the eyes and generally more interesting when capable actors like Jenna Coleman, who »
