Part 2 of 3
Follow America’s entry into the war as patriotism sweeps the nation, stifling free speech and dissent. A diverse group of men becomes the country’s first mass-conscripted army, while women continue to demand the vote.

About Victoria Season 2 on Masterpiece: Queen Victoria is a feisty rookie monarch, asserting her rule over the most powerful nation on the planet, and Tom Hughes (Dancing on the Edge) is her smoldering consort Prince Albert. Dame Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones) joins the acting ensemble and Nell Hudson (Outlander) is back as the queen’s personal dresser, Mrs. Skerrett – along with a palace full of schemers and luminaries. The drama all takes place against the backdrop of the early years of the Industrial Revolution, when society was changing as fast as the queen’s growing family.
