Most of those opinions tend to boil down to “OMG COSTUME PORN,” but still. We’ll try and pull ourselves together.
First, the audio-visual aids:
It seems the game plan for season 2 is going to be “Everything you loved about season one of The Crown, but more of it.” We realize the actual history of these characters means we can’t return without more Betty and Phil marriage drama, not to mention more Margaret drama, but we hope they can find new things to say or it might get repetitive.
Oh, who are we kidding? Tons of gowns, royal scandal PLUS yet another attempt at Jack-and-Jackie drag? OF COURSE we’re in.
About The Crown Season Two
“The Crown, a Netflix original series, tells the inside story of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, as the fragile social order established after the Second World War breaks apart. Based on the award-winning play, The Audience, the series reunites creator/writer Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon) with director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) and producer Andy Harries (The Queen).
Beginning with soldiers in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces fighting an illegal war in Egypt, and ending with the downfall of her third Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan after a devastating scandal, the second season bears witness to the end of the age of deference, and ushers in the revolutionary era of the 1960s.
The Crown continues to chronicle the major political and global events that have defined and shaped the second half of the twentieth century – a series that is unprecedented in its scale, ambition and creative vision.”
