Yesterday on my way back home from work, I was scrolling my Facebook page and I almost jumped off my seat the moment I saw this:
Yes! The acclaimed Netflix series, The Crown, winner of three Golden Globe Awards, including Best Television Series – Drama, is back this coming winter and I have already started the countdown!
The trailer lasts less than two minutes, but gives a thrilling overview of what is coming: more scandals, more tension, more British glamour, more family struggles … everything that we loved in season 1 is back and it looks even better. Who else is actually more excited about Princess Margaret’s love affairs than the rest of the story? Only me?
Claire Foy and Matt Smith reprise their roles respectively as Queen Elisabeth II and Prince Phillips, even it might be for the last time. According to the latest interviews with Peter Morgan, the genius behind the series, the chances of using CGI and/or ‘some silly make up’ are very low, hence that only leaves the doors open for recasting and replacing the current actors with older ones. Who would be your next choice?
The Crown – season 2 will be available on Netflix from December, 8th.
