ITV has confirmed that it has "no plans" presently for Jenna Coleman's Victoria to return for a fourth season.

The popular period drama featured Coleman as the former monarch and was last aired on our small screens in 2019.

Following rumours that the series had been cancelled after three seasons, a spokesperson for ITV has announced that while a fourth instalment is not currently in development, the drama could be reprised in the future.

"There are no plans presently to film Victoria, but that’s not to say we won’t revisit the series with the production team at a later date," ITV said in a statement.

Coleman had previously said that the series was "taking a break" after series three concluded.

"It's definitely going to take a break, bit of a breather and then we're working out… there's a lot of conversations, do you start at the Crimean War, or do you start later?" the actress told Graham Norton on his Radio 2 show. "I mean there's too much story, unless I literally did commit until I am 63."

Earlier this year, The Serpent star revealed that a return to the show in the future was possible, telling the Mirror: "We are in the process of discussing it at the moment and timelines.

"Effectively I could play this part until I am well into my sixties. But obviously, at the moment, there is only a certain age that I could take it up to – unless I am in prosthetics every day for hours on end."

Created by Daisy Goodwin, the series also starred Tom Hughes as Prince Albert, The Crown's Alex Jennings as King Leopold, and Nigel Lindsay as Sir Robert Peele.

Victoria aired 25 episodes on ITV between August 2016 and May 2019.
