Trailer for Season 2 of 'The Crown' Shows Queen Elizabeth Like We've Never Seen Her Before

Netflix The Crown

Big news for fans of The Crown! The acclaimed Netflix series is coming back to our small screens before the end of the year, and the studio just released the first trailer of season 2 to tide us over in the meantime.


The series follows the early days of Queen Elizabeth II's reign, and was an insta-hit when it was released on the streaming service. Even the queen herself reportedly watches it, although she does think a few of the events portrayed have been sensationalized.

Okay, fine, we're sure it's not a direct mirror of the true life of the royals 40–50 years ago, but it's still super fun to watch!
