Netflix has set a date for The Crown‘ Season 2, as Peter Morgan’s spectacular drama about the British monarchy returns on Friday, 8th December 2017.

‘The Crown’ tells the inside story of two of the most famous addresses in the world – Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street – and the intrigues, love lives and machinations behind the great events that shaped the second half of the 20th century. Season 2 picks up as Queen Elizabeth’s (Claire Foy) marriage to Prince Philip (Matt Smith) hits a rough patch, and her empire crumbles around her. She must do what is required to ensure the British monarchy survives.

As you can see in the trailer, we get a brief glimpse of Dexter’s Michael C. Hall who takes the role of US President John F. Kennedy, alongside Jodi Balfour (‘Bomb Girls’, ‘Rellik’) as Jackie Kennedy. Season 2 is set to start with Her Majesty’s Armed Forces fighting an illegal war in Egypt and work through the 1960’s, ending with the downfall of PM Harold Macmillan, played by Anton Lesser (‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Endeavour’.) ‘Downton Abbey’ star Matthew Goode is also set to take on the role of Princess Margaret’s photographer husband, Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon.

This will be Claire Foy & Matt Smith’s final outing as the royal couple before they are replaced next season with a new duo closer to the appropriate age of the characters at that point in their history.

The series, which was commissioned from the outset for 60 episodes over 6 seasons, has been a smash hit for Netflix, landing 13 Emmy nominations recently including nominations for acting, directing, writing, and a bunch of technical nods.

The Crown‘ Season 2 with stream on to Netflix UK and worldwide on Friday, 8th December 2017.
