'The Crown' Season 2 Gets Premiere Date, First Look

Claire Foy's portrayal of the young monarch in the early days of her reign, balancing a displaced husband (Matt Smith), a rebellious sister (Vanessa Kirby), and Winston Churchill (John Lithgow) made for compelling television. Fans of the show are eager to watch the next installment, which is due to follow the British monarchy through the '50s and '60s, and thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we finally have a first look at Season 2. We know she will succeed, but at what emotional and psychological cost?

The trailer above shows some of the struggles a now-seasoned Queen Elizabeth II will be dealing with: scandal, possible infidelity, and the ever-fickle love of her people. Considering the way these rumors were handled by the media at the time (and how little concrete "truth" was uncovered), it'll be very interesting to see how Peter Morgan and his team have chosen to dramatize these events.

Of Queen Elizabeth's journey in Season 2, Foy told Entertainment Weekly, she "starts to realize she needs to pay more attention to her personal life".

The Queen appears to be fitting her role with more confidence this season, which will reportedly cover the years from 1956-64. Just in time for. dare we say it. Christmas.

The Crown, Netflix's acclaimed drama about Queen Elizabeth II, will return for Season 2 on Friday, December 8, the streaming service announced Thursday.
