Victoria, Season 3 on Masterpiece

(Rochester, N.Y.) – Jenna Coleman returns as Her fearless Majesty Queen Victoria in an all-new season of the hit drama Victoria on Masterpiece. As Season 3 gets underway, Victoria is pregnant with her sixth child. But she has much else on her mind, chiefly the Revolutions of 1848, when the downtrodden throughout Europe begin agitating for the overthrow of aristocratic rule. Victoria, Season 3 on Masterpiece premieres Sunday, January 13, 2019 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV. 

Continuing the story of Victoria’s rule over the largest empire the world has ever known, Victoria, Season 3 introduces fascinating new historical characters, including Laurence Fox (Inspector Lewis) as the vainglorious Lord Palmerston, who crosses swords with the queen over British foreign policy. Also vexing the queen this season is Kate Fleetwood (Harlots) as Victoria’s devoted but troubled half-sister, Princess Feodora, who seeks refuge at Buckingham Palace due to political unrest back home in Germany.
