The much-anticipated Victoria on Masterpiece begins Sunday, Jan. 15, at 8 p.m., on NPT. While the Victorian era has been a go-to time period for Masterpiece and PBS for decades, this is a new look at the storied reign of the legendary monarch. Prefer to binge-watch? Following the Jan. 15 premiere, the entire season of the new drama will also be available for streaming on NPT Passport.

Written by historical novelist Daisy Goodwin, Victoria on Masterpiece chronicles Victoria’s first years on the throne as she displays a surprisingly determined manner. The cast stars Jenna Coleman as Victoria; Rufus Sewell as Prime Minister Lord Melbourne; and Tom Hughes as Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, Victoria’s consort. Victoria on Masterpiece airs Sundays through March 5 (with a break Feb. 26 for the Oscars).
