Netflix released a trailer for Season 2 of their critically acclaimed series The Crown. They also released the premiere date for the second season, which will premiere just in time for the holiday season. All episodes of the new season will be available for streaming on December 8, 2017.
I really liked the first season. I think it showed the audience how unexpected it was that Elizabeth would become the reigning monarch of England but, as we saw throughout the course of the season, certain events happened that triggered this all to occur. Seeing Claire Foy’s performance as Queen Elizabeth struggling with her title as Queen and her role as a mother and wife was what sold me on the series.
The official synopsis for the series is below:
The season begins with soldiers in Her Majesty’s forces fighting an illegal war in Egypt and ends with the downfall of her third Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan, after a devastating scandal. This new season will bear witness to the age of deference, and will usher viewers into the revolutionary era of the 1960s.
As Queen Elizabeth’s marriage and empire crumbles around her, she must do what is required to ensure the British monarchy survives.
The series stars Claire Foy and Matt Smith. The series reunites creator/writer Peter Morgan with director Stephen Daldry and producer Andy Harries.
