The Crown Season Two: What to Expect From Netflix Hit

896

The second season of Netflix’s royal drama The Crown releasing on Friday, Dec. 8.  The next episodes about the early days of Queen Elizabeth II are finally returning and will be available to watch from midnight in the US and 8 am for UK viewers.

The most expensive series ever produced by Netflix is called The Crown. It tells the story of young Queen Elizabeth and her marriage to Philip in late 1947. The first season ending the Princess Margaret’s engagement to Peter Townsend in 1955.

Season two is expected to follow Liz and the royals from around 1957 through 1964 – so there is reason we’ll see the births of Princes Andrew (born 1960) and Edward (1964).

Season 2 – what do we know about it

The season two will contain 10 episodes and as usual, they’ll be dropped all at once.

Season two of The Crown will be the last to see Claire Foy play Queen Elizabeth II before Olivia Colman takes over the role while the casting for Prince Philip is yet to be confirmed.

Foy has teased that season two of The Crown will “pretty much start where we left off”.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, she said: “We go up to ‘63, ‘64. So we span about another seven, eight years.”

Vanessa Kirby (Princess Margaret), Victoria Hamilton (the Queen Mother) and Jeremy Northam (Anthony Eden) are also expected to return in season two.

Unfortunately, the show will lose John Lithgow’s Winston Churchill, following his resignation at the end of season one. He has not been on set this year.

“Focus on Philip and outside world”

As is was also announced the second season will focus more on Philip, Queen’s husband, and the outside world. Showrunner Peter Morgan has confirmed the series will be dive deeper to Prince Philip’s past, his continuing relationship with his wife (and monarch), and his son.

“The first series was very much about the family and her finding her role after her father died and coming into her own, and this second series is very much about the outside world.”

Foy, who plays Queen Elizabeth, added: “It’s very much about Philip and his impact on the crown, and their marriage. It’s about Margaret and Tony Armstrong-Jones . . . It’s very much the outside world, and the ‘60s, and sex and drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, and stuff that really you would not associate with the Queen of England.”

Also, we’ll see the childhood of Charles and his relationships with father.

“We start to focus on Charles as a young boy and his education, and on Philip and his backstory,” Morgan told People magazine.
