The historical drama tells the story of a young Queen Elizabeth II. The cast includes Claire Foy, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, Vanessa Kirby, and John Lithgow.
In the interview, Morgan revealed that Netflix paid $100 million for two seasons of the series. The article also notes:
And, indeed, The Crown, is moving forward with a second season. In fact, director and executive producer Stephen Daldry said before the MoMA screening that the cast and crew were currently filming the second installment but took a break to screen the series’ first two episodes.
Morgan also mentioned that season two will follow Elizabeth II through 1964, the year Winston Churchill died:
It’s the post-Churchill era. But it’s still a very particular era of Britain. It’s not yet what I would call modern Britain. That would start in the mid-’60s.”
What do you think? Have you seen The Crown yet? Are you glad there will be a second season?
