‘The Crown’ Season 2 Trailer & Images Reveal the Queen on a (Quiet) Warpath

  • Collider.com
At long last (or so it feels), Netflix's gorgeous royal drama The Crown has set its return date. The series, created by Peter Morgan, chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II (played by the exceptional Claire Foy), investigating her marriage to Prince Philip (Matt Smith), and her relationships with her wayward sister Margaret (Vanessa Kirby) and her judgmental mother (Victoria Hamilton). The Crown also explores Elizabeth's relationship with Parliament and her (now three) Prime Ministers during her reign. It's fascinating portrait of a ruler who is still alive and well, which makes it all even more engrossing. …

“The Crown” Season 2 Has a Premiere Date and Teaser

The Crown”: Netflix

Netflix has unveiled a premiere date and teaser for “The Crown’s” second season, and things are looking especially stressful for Queen Elizabeth II. “The rumors still haven’t gone away,” the Queen (Claire Foy, “Wolf Hall”) narrates, presumably referring to her husband’s infidelities. “I’ve learned more about humiliation in the past few weeks than I hoped I would in a lifetime.”

Among the monarch’s other grievances are disappointing Prime Ministers, family drama, and the continued deterioration of the British Empire. When her husband (Matt Smith, “Doctor Who”) points out that “there are some of us who are there for you no matter what,” Elizabeth scoffs and replies, “If only.”

Scheduled to return December 8, 2017, the new season of “The Crown” “bears witness to the end of the age of deference, and ushers in the revolutionary era of the 1960s,” Netflix details. In addition to Prince Philip’s shortcomings, the Queen will cope with an illegal war in Egypt and a scandal involving Prime Minister Harold Macmillan.

Philippa Lowthorpe (“Swallows and Amazons,” “Call the Midwife”) is among the directors on “The Crown’s” upcoming season.

Victoria Hamilton (“Doctor Foster”) and Vanessa Kirby (Thea Sharrock’s “Me Before You”) also star on “The Crown” as the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret, respectively. The Netflix series was created by Peter Morgan, who wrote the 2006 drama “The Queen,” another story about Queen Elizabeth II.

The Crown’s” first season garnered 10 Emmy nominations and earned Golden Globes for Best TV Actress (Foy) and Best Television Series.

Check out the Season 2 trailer below.

With season one in the bag (which reportedly came at a $130 million price tag), it's time to look forward: what do we know about season two? RelatedQueen Elizabeth II's Reaction to Watching The Crown Is Probably Not What You'd Think The Main Cast Lead actress Claire Foy took home multiple best actress trophies this award season for her spot-on, layered performance as the queen, so it should come as no surprise that she's signed on for season two.

Fact-Checking the Crown: 5 Things That Are True (and 3 That Aren’t!)
Netflix’s sleek period drama The Crown has captivated audiences with its peek into the private life of Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy), but many fans may be wondering how much of the glamorous series is based on real life. While some elements — like the Duke and Duchess of Windsor’s frosty relationship with the royal family and Princess Margaret’s romance with the dashing Pete Townsend — are true, several key elements of the series are either totally made up or exaggerated for dramatic effect. (And let’s be honest, even the life of a royal sometimes needs TV magic to make it more watchable.

Review: Uneasy lies the head that wears 'The Crown' in great new Netflix drama

Review: Uneasy lies the head that wears 'The Crown' in great new Netflix drama
"And, if I may: never let them see the real Elizabeth Windsor," Winston Churchill warns his young queen in Netflix's new drama The Crown. "Never let them see that carrying the crown is often a burden. Let them look at you, but let them see only the eternal." For those who didn't grow up under the British monarchy (and even for some who did), Queen Elizabeth can be a hard person in whom to find sympathy. She is the cold, distant symbol of an obsolete but fabulously wealthy system and has held a hard line on its antiquated rules, which at various points in her lifetime stood in the way of her uncle, her sister, and her son from marrying the people they loved because the various institutions of church and state did not approve. Peter Morgan once wrote a wonderful film — The Queen, the middle piece in his trilogy
