The show debuted in the United Kingdom last month. It is to premiere on PBS in the United States on Jan. 15.
"[Producers] Mammoth [Screen] and [screenwriter] Daisy Goodwin have brought the characters so vividly to life in this series, and we're thrilled with the reception for Victoria. We're pleased to be able to confirm that Jenna Coleman and Tom Hughes will return to continue the story on ITV," Kevin Lygo, ITV's director of television, said in a statement Friday.
"Even though she reigned in the 19th century, Victoria is a heroine for our times. In the next series, she faces the very modern dilemma of how to juggle children with her husband and her job. As Victoria will discover, it's hard to be a wife, a mother and ruler of the most powerful nation on earth!" Goodwin added.
