Starring Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II, the series explores her early reign in Britain and the tumultuous standing of the country and her marriage to Prince Philip. And judging by the trailer for season two, which was released Thursday, August 10, we're in for another wild ride when the show returns in December.
Watch the first trailer above and see the first look images for Season 2 below. Despite the turmoil that her reign undergoes, Queen Elizabeth the II has gone on to become the longest-reigning and longest-living British monarch of all time - sitting on the throne still today.
However, there's clearly some marital issues as Elizabeth suggests that she has no one to trust in a frank conversation with her husband.
In Season 2, the Queen will face the Suez Crisis and handle the scandalous affair of John Profumo, the Secretary of State for War, and a teen model.
The second season of The Crown continues in a chronological fashion.
Claire Foy's Queen Elizabeth says she's learned a lot about "humiliation", thanks in no small part to rumours about what Matt Smith's Prince Philip has been up to in the time since their terse exchange at the end of series one. Namely, everyone around her is not particularly thrilled with the royal life. "The world's changing faster than anyone can catch up with". If in Season 1 Margaret fell in love and got involved with a divorced man, now she will find love again in the arms of a commoner photographer.
Among countless other accolades, the show also won Golden Globes for Best Actress-TV Drama Series and Best TV Drama Series.
