It’s been more than a year since the fans last saw this historical drama, and now everyone is getting desperate for Victoria Season 4. The final moments of the previous season left the fans rooting for the fourth installment. However, they didn’t get any official updates from the creators so far. The fans believe that there is a lot left to see Queen Victoria’s reign over the British Empire.
Victoria is a British historical drama TV series. As the name suggests, it is based on the life of Queen Victoria. The inaugural season of the series premiered on August 28, 2016, on ITV in the UK, and on January 15, 2017, on PBS in the US. The show won the love of the fans in both the places and managed to get praise from the critics as well.
Victoria Season 4: Renewal Status!
The fourth installment of the series was neither renewed nor canceled by the creators. The previous season of the series ended with a cliffhanger, so the show will more likely return for its following season. In an interview with Digital Spy, the writer, and creator, Daisy Goodwin also hinted that the show would return for Victoria Season 4. She said, “I am working on series four at the moment, and that’s going to be an absolute humdinger.”
Previously all the signs were hinting towards the return, but its been more than one and a half year without the renewal. Usually, the show doesn’t take this much time to get the renewal. Some fans already believed that they won’t see the new episodes of this series ever again. Some are still hoping that the network would announce the return after the pandemic situation is over.
Reasons Behind The Delay!
According to some reports, the main reason behind the delay of the fourth season is the busy schedule of the main cast. Our Queen Victoria (Jenna Coleman) is currently working with numerous projects. Her schedule is very tight, and she is unable to give dates for the fourth season. And you just can’t expect Victoria without Victoria herself. Before the Coronavirus outbreak, Jenna Coleman was busy with the production of The Serpent, a Netflix and BBC crime drama series. During the pandemic, she also participated in “The Remote Read,” a prepared series of online drama plays to raise funds for theater workers left unemployed by the outbreak.
Victoria Season 4: Plot Details!
In the previous season, the fans saw the Chartist movement reach a whole new level in London. So, Victoria had to leave for Cornwall to ensure her safety. When they return, Victoria’s estranged sister Feodora Victoria and her husband Prince Albert start sailing, and their upcoming marriage was tested. The third season ended with Prince Albert’s dramatic collapse to the floor of Buckingham Palace. The ending left the multiple possibilities for the opening of Victoria Season 4. By the look of the third season, it seems like the fourth season will be set in 1851. It will follow Queen Victoria’s journey through the murky waters of her reign.
The creators also claimed that the upcoming installment would be the darkest one of the entire series. Daisy also revealed that a significant character would die in the next installment. In an interview, she said, “Somebody might die in it – spoiler! That is going to be a grand challenge and is going to be an amazing, perfect story.” She also informed the fans about the entry of a new character. She added, “Somebody dies, and someone new comes on the picture, so there is a lot to play with. I’ve got back into it and am really liking writing it.”
Victoria Season 4: Release Date
For the exact release date, we have to wait for the series to be renewed for the fourth season. There is a gap of one and a half year between the release of the second and third season of the series. So, if the show receives the green light for the succeeding installment in the upcoming months, the fans can expect to see Victoria Season 4 by the end of 2022 or later.
