The Crown returns to Netflix on December 8 for a second season. This show follows the early years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. Season 1 follows The Queen from the mid ’40s to the mid ’50s and Season 2 will pick up where we left off just as Anthony Eden is elected Prime Minister.
Claire Foy as The Queen gives a brilliant performance, as does Matt Smith as Prince Philip. Season 1 won several awards for best actors, best costumes, best drama, and many more. If you love period shows, this is definitely worth a watch. It also has a 91% on Rotten Tomatoes.
