Previously, on Victoria: There is a way, way too much to summarize here. Here’s a quick guide to where we left everyone after Season 1 or, if you’re feeling particularly ambitious, we also have recaps of every episode

Admittedly, period drama Victoria started off in a fairly enviable position. Before a single minute of his sumptuous costumes and swoony romance was broadcast, pretty much everyone had dubbed it as ITV’s successor to the international phenomenon that was Downton Abbey. The thing no one could have really predicted though, is that Victoria actually turned out to be good.

There’s something about this show – the compelling characters, complicated relationships and proto-feminist attitude somehow combine into an absolutely perfect confectionery of actual history and period wish fulfillment. You can swoon over it, laugh with it, and wonder how far it’s willing to bend actual history to tell its story, sometimes all in the same hour. And Season 2 seems determined to take everything that worked for Season 1 and run with it, improving on what has come before.

There are less than two months to go until the premiere of Victoria Season 2 on Masterpiece. This is great news in and of itself, obviously. But it also means that the floodgates of promotion are officially open. (This is a good thing, by the way.)

With only a few short weeks to go until Season 2 begins, prepare yourselves to see all kinds of trailers, promotional clips, behind-the-scenes photos and cast interviews start popping up all over. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and a real balm to the spirits of US fans who had to watch our UK friends get all the goodies a couple months ago. Get ready to rejoice.
