The Crown season 2: Premiere date, teaser and images

We've been itching for The Crown to return to Netflix, and we FINALLY have a confirmation date - 8 December.

"Is it not possible that among all of these problems, there are some of us who are there for you no matter what?" says Matt Smith's Prince Philip to Claire Foy's Queen Elizabeth II. Spanning from 1956 to 1963, the episodes will cover a multitude of important moments in Queen Elizabeth II's reign.

Meanwhile, her younger sister Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirby) is clearly moving on from the heartbreak of season one as she poses for photographs.

Foy loved the lush costumes and the global exposure, but she says she is ready to say goodbye to Queen Elizabeth.

Netflix's surprise success The Crown, which has received nine Emmy nominations for its first season, will be back soon enough with its second season.

Series two of the global hit royal drama The Crown will be available to stream before the end of the year. "You married a wild spirit".

"The world's changing faster than anyone can catch up with". Season 2 will be the last season starring Foy and Smith, as the third season features yet another time hop, and older actors will be brought in to star as the royal couple. The series is meant to last 60 episodes over six seasons, with 10 one-hour episodes per season, covering Queen Elizabeth II's entire life, and with new actors being cast every two seasons.
