Netflix has confirmed the launch date for ‘The Crown’ Season 2

The second season of The Crown recently finished filming and Netflix has today announced the premiere date for the new episodes.

The biographical period drama tells the story of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, played by Wolf Hall actress Claire Foy.

The first season debuted in November 2016 and creator/writer Peter Morgan has plans for The Crown to run for six seasons and 60 episodes in total.

All ten episodes of Season 2 will be available on Netflix from Friday 8 December.

The official synopsis for the new season reads: “As Queen Elizabeth’s marriage and empire crumbles around her, she must do what is required to ensure the British monarchy survives.”

The Crown star Claire Foy recently hinted: “[Season 2 is] completely different, like a completely different show in a way. The direction the show has gone in is very different and the period of time is moving on, so it does feel very different.”

Dexter star Michael C. Hall and Jodi Balfour (QuarryAlmost Anything) will be joining the cast as Jack and Jackie Kennedy.
