Arlington, VA January 3, 2019 -- This January, PBS Distribution will begin streaming two new series on the PBS MASTERPIECE Prime Video Channel – the all-new season of the hit MASTERPIECE drama, “VICTORIA” and WALTER PRESENTS international drama “NO LIMIT, SEASON 2” 

VICTORIA, Season 3

Jenna Coleman returns as her fearless Majesty Queen Victoria in the long anticipated third season of VICTORIA. Hailed as “tremendously engaging…immediately gratifying” by The New York Times, and “captivating” by The Boston Globe, VICTORIA was a runaway hit during its first two seasons.  Continuing the story of Victoria’s rule over the largest empire the world has ever known, VICTORIA: SEASON 3 introduces fascinating new historical characters, including Laurence Fox (Inspector Lewis) as the vainglorious Lord Palmerston, who crosses swords with the queen over British foreign policy. Also vexing the queen this season is Kate Fleetwood (Harlots) as Victoria’s devoted but troubled half-sister, Princess Feodora, who seeks refuge at Buckingham Palace due to political unrest back home in Germany. 

A new episode of VICTORIA will be available each Monday on the PBS MASTERPIECE Prime Video channel, available to Prime members for $5.99/month after a 7-day free trial, and in PBS Passport, a member benefit for PBS station donors that offers extended access to a rich library of public television programming (contact your local PBS station for details).

Acclaimed French film director Luc Besson, brings to the digital screen the second season of the action packed no-holds-barred thriller, “NO LIMIT.” A former soldier diagnosed with a brain tumor is offered an experimental treatment that will keep him alive.
