Michele Clapton, a three-time Emmy victor for her work on "Game of Thrones", told WWD previous year that she was given a "decent" budget for the first season and worked to recreate the more famous, public moments in the Queen's life, which are highly recognizable, and took creative liberties when it came to the unknown personal life scenes.
The show's first season won two Golden Globe awards, both for Best Television Series-Drama and Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series Drama (Claire Foy) and has also been nominated for 10 Emmy Awards. "We just jumped a period of time, so you will see a bit of that".
The first run left viewers wanting more as Winston Churchill resigned as Prime Minister, Princess Margaret was left broken-hearted and Elizabeth II was accused of betraying her husband Philip. In the new season, she will be more of a self-assured and calculating leader which will give her more allowance to deal with personal and familial relationships.
Netflix releases first look photos at the second series of Peter Morgan's royal drama "The Crown", and announces the upcoming series will debut on Friday, December 8 in all territories where Netflix is available.
Foy told EW of the new series: "I think [Queen Elizabeth] starts to realise she needs to pay more attention to her personal life now that the other part of her life is going all right".
"The world's changing faster than anyone can catch up with".
