The historical drama chronicles the early years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. The cast includes Claire Foy, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, Vanessa Kirby, and John Lithgow. Netflix has already ordered a second season of the series.
In the interview, Morgan admitted he’s not thinking about a third season yet:
I’ve got to be honest with you. I cannot think beyond season two and I’m not going to think beyond season two. Of course by virtue of the fact that we continue to have Prime Ministers and the Queen has continued to stay alive and on the throne, there is a possibility of further material. As any showrunner will tell you, it is crushing work. It is around the clock. It is like a monastic commitment that you make. Pretty much nothing else in your life exists but this. I’m not thinking beyond this. The agreement I made with Netflix is that I would wait and see how the show was received before ever considering continuing. Because there’s simply no point in continuing unless what you’re doing has somehow connected or punched through at a significant level. It’s simply too overwhelming a commitment. I haven’t thought for one second about future seasons because I’m almost living in denial of the possibility of this continuing.”
What do you think? Have you seen The Crown? Would you like more seasons?
