The next chapter of the Royal Family-focused series finds Queen Elizabeth II tackling an illegal war in Egypt and dealing with her third Prime Minster.

The Crown is a meticulously crafted series, boasting strong performances and standout productions values that make it absolutely stunning to look at. Sure, the pacing can be a little slow, but as a character study and a look at the monarchy in this corner of the world, during these particular times, it’s great television. Season 2 looks to continue on in adequate fashion.
All ten episodes of season 2 will arrive on Netflix on December 8.
Synopsis for The Crown:
The Crown, a Netflix original series, tells the inside story of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, as the fragile social order established after the Second World War breaks apart. Based on the award-winning play, The Audience, the series reunites creator/writer Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon) with director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) and producer Andy Harries (The Queen).
Beginning with soldiers in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces fighting an illegal war in Egypt, and ending with the downfall of her third Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan after a devastating scandal, the second season bears witness to the end of the age of deference, and ushers in the revolutionary era of the 1960s.
The Crown continues to chronicle the major political and global events that have defined and shaped the second half of the twentieth century – a series that is unprecedented in its scale, ambition and creative vision.
