Victoria to rule for Seasons 2 and 3?
Speaking at the PBS summer press tour, Victoria exec producer Daisy Goodwin talked up the possibility of taking the British period drama well beyond its 8-episode first season, per THR:
The first season covers the first three of Victoria’s 63 years in the power, which means a “there is more than enough story” for a second season and beyond. “It could potentially be a long-running thing and that’s certainly how I thought of it,” Goodwin said. “I don’t want to make any assumptions.”
Commenting on the drama’s plentiful source material, star Jenna Coleman noted:
“[Victoria was] one of the most prolific journal writers of history,” and estimated that she had written over 162 million words in the various diaries she kept. “The resource material is you have her diaries all in her voice,” she said. “You can see her passionate nature on the page.”
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the renewal status of Victoria Season 2 and potentially beyond…
