Q: I enjoyed the PBS series "Victoria" that ended in 2019. I thought it ended abruptly. Will there be more?
A: A fourth season of the series about Queen Victoria has been ordered, but it has yet to start production. PBS' "Masterpiece" website says only, "The series is currently on hiatus, and unfortunately, we don't have any additional information to share at this time." Jenna Coleman, who plays Victoria, said in a January interview with a British publication that "we are in the process of discussing it at the moment and timelines." But she worried about "too much story" — how long the 35-year-old actress could play the long-reigning monarch. So the short answer now to "Victoria's" future is that we don't know much.
'Rebel' without an airdate
Q: I was disappointed to read that ABC canceled "Rebel." Any chance some other network picks it up?
A: Cancellation of the Katey Sagal drama after just five episodes surprised a lot of people. The ratings were not bad, the cast was excellent and the production team was headed by Krista Vernoff, who leads ABC hits "Grey's Anatomy" and "Station 19." As TVLine.com reported, Sagal called the cancellation "a shock and a heartbreak. We are all scratching our heads." She directed fans to a petition (bit.ly/3wrv27L), saying, "If our show can find another, more suitable place to land, we will do the happy dance. If not, we gave it our all and made our voices heard, which is the message behind 'Rebel'!"
