'The Crown' Season 2: Queen's Life Rocked With Scandal in First Teaser

Though the royal actors are expected to be replaced in Season 3 and 4, and again in Season 5 and 6 to accomodate for their characters' aging, Claire Foy (Queen Elizabeth) and Matt Smith (Prince Philip) will be back for The Crown season two. And judging by the trailer for season two, which was released Thursday, August 10, we're in for another wild ride when the show returns in December.

England's political situation - and the serious Prime Minister crisis of the 1950s and '60s - will see Elizabeth struggle with her de facto powers as a queen. Queen Liz is notoriously private, so any glimpse into her private life, even a fictionalized version, was a call few could resist.

Netflix has released the trailer for the second season of The Crown.

Season 2 of The Crown will be on Netflix on December 8. Set between 1956 and 1964, it "bears witness to the end of the age of deference and ushers in the revolutionary era of the 1960s", according to a statement provided by Netflix. Firstly, there are hints that there may be trouble in her marriage... Despite the turmoil that her reign undergoes, Queen Elizabeth the II has gone on to become the longest-reigning and longest-living British monarch of all time - sitting on the throne still today.

Looking into season 2 there is going to be a bit of a time jump: A ten year time jump in fact.

Of course, the issue the Queen will always face is balancing her reign with her family. The success of The Crown's first season helped earn star Claire Foy a Golden Globe and the series a handful of Emmy nominations.

In Season 2, we'll also see Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirby) move on from her affair with Capt. Peter Townsend to a relationship with society photographer Tony Armstrong-Jones (Matthew Goode).
