Victoria Season 2 has been crowned with an early renewal, but plans for a the future of the series beyond that are already being royally discussed.
Per RadioTimes, Jenna Coleman is expected to secure the throne for a potential third season, but the show could recast Queen Victoria for Season 4 through to the sixth and planned final season, if the renewals keep coming:
“It’s about how fast we go through the story,” said an ITV source.
“Obviously the channel would want the drama to go to the end of her 63 year reign in 1901, but around six series and a new Queen half way through is what is being talked about at the moment,” they added.
When asked about her future and whether she would play an aged Queen with various prosthetics applied to her face, Coleman herself suggested that the production has already started depicting the ageing process this series.
She told RadioTimes.com: “I think it would depend on the pace you want to go, but it’s amazing how young I look in the first couple of episodes; I then watched episode eight the other day and I think the costumes get a bit simpler, and we start to see less frills and flowers.
Victoria Season 2 premieres in 2017.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of Victoria Season 3 and potentially beyond…
