It's possible we might be living in the golden age of period dramas. Sure, Mad Men and Downton Abbey are over, but between Poldark, Versailles, Outlander, and Call the Midwifethere are enough historic, beautifully costumed shows to fill your DVR for months to come.

Among our favorites is Victoria, on Masterpiece PBS.

Starring Jenna Coleman (of Doctor Who fame) as the young queen, the first season of the show follows Victoria she ascends to the throne at 18, and through her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert.

Season two, set to premiere early next year, will pick up where it left off, shortly after the birth of Queen Victoria's first child. “Victoria and Albert are facing the challenge of being new parents and Victoria is not very keen on motherhood,” show creator Daisy Goodwin said.

Our first real sneak peek of the season debuted today, highlighting Victoria's struggle with motherhood, and what may have been postpartum depression.

"You're not the only woman who has felt in low spirits after the birth of a child," Duchess of Buccleuch, played by Dame Diana Rigg, tells Victoria in the clip below.

"But I am not a woman," Victoria replies. "I am the Queen."

Watch the full trailer below:

Victoria's second season will premiere in January of 2018.
