Netflix opened up about its plans for season two of the acclaimed period drama “The Crown,” including releasing a new trailer, which you can watch below.
The season launches globally on the streaming service on Friday, Dec. 8.
The Netflix announcement includes at least a couple of would-be taglines: “Strength comes through struggle,” and “History was not made by those who did nothing.”
“‘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,” Netflix says in today’s announcement.
The announcement adds: “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.”
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”).
