The first trailer for the second season of The Crown, which tells the story of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain, has appeared online.
While the first season focused on Queen Elizabeth’s early life, the second will cover the period from 1956 to 1964, when the royal house had to deal with allegations that Prince Philip was having an affair.
The new season will have ten episodes in which the viewer will find the story of the Suez crisis. And a loud scandal that led to the fall of the government. It was a difficult time for Great Britain in the 60s and directly for the monarch. The viewer will also learn about the new romance between the unrestrained Princess Margaret and the photographer Lord Snowdon.
The main cast, which includes Claire Foy, Matt Smith, Vanessa Kirby, was joined by Matthew Goode in the second season. And also Michael C. Hall and Jodi Balfour, who will portray the presidential couple John and Jacqueline Kennedy on the screen.
The second season of The Crown starts on December 8th.
Interestingly, the series was renewed for a second season even before the release of the first. And it is one of the most expensive television projects. The first 10 episodes cost $156 million to produce.
