Victoria on MASTERPIECE doesn't return for a new season until after the New Year, but you can join us for a free screening of the first hour of the show's first episode on Jan. 7 at the Virginia Theatre.


Victoria on MASTERPIECE returns to Sunday nights on WILL-TV for an all-new season Jan. 13, 2019. However, you can join WILL-TV for a FREE sneak peek of the first hour of the premiere episode of Season 3 on Jan. 7 at the Virginia Theatre. Full details can be found below.

It is 1848, and revolution is breaking out across Europe. In Britain, one woman stands between order and chaos: Queen Victoria. In Season 3, the young but fearless monarch faces a crisis that threatens to end her epic reign...

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 on masterpiece

This discontent leads to Chartism, a set of demands for universal male suffrage, the secret ballot, equal representation for voters and other reforms that were considered radical by leading political figures during Victoria’s reign. As with many crusades, passions are aroused on both sides—sometimes violently. At the time, who knew if events might turn out like the French Revolution, which resorted to widespread use of the guillotine?

Meanwhile, Victoria and Albert find themselves at odds about their offspring, especially the troubled Bertie, the role of the monarchy, and increasingly with each other.

This season is sure to bring the drama. 

You won't want to miss a moment of the third season of Victoria on MASTERPIECE, returning to WILL-TV at 8 pm on Sunday, Jan. 13, 2019.
