'Victoria' Season 3 Teaser Takes the Queen Into a Time of Revolution
Heavy is the head that wears the crown — and for Queen Victoria, it's just getting heavier.
PBS' Masterpiece release the first teaser for "Victoria" Season 3, which will premiere January 13. It's 1848 and the queen (Jenna Coleman) and husband Prince Albert (Tom Hughes) now have a large brood of children running around. Constant pregnancy puts a strain on the royal couple's relationship but there are more troubling issues at play. "This is a time of revolution," Albert declares.
Series creator Daisy Goodwin previously described it as "a hugely dramatic and eventful time for both the royal family and Europe, with revolutions on the continent and uncertainty around the monarchy."
Goodwin continued, “It’s the closest Britain got to a revolution in the 19th century. The whole of Europe is falling apart. The French king has been thrown off the throne ... There are riots in Berlin, and Victoria and Albert are terrified."
Kate Fleetwood joins the cast as Victoria's mysterious elder half-sister Feodora, who makes an unexpected return (and trouble) for her sibling.
And in case you're worried that Prince Albert will die this season, fear not! He doesn't die until 1861 so he's got some time left.
