The online streaming site Netflix, released the first official trailer of the 2nd season of Peter Morgan’s royal drama The Crown, and announces the upcoming series will debut on December 8.

The famous Netflix original series based on the award-winning play, The Audience, tells the inside story of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, as the fragile social order established after the Second World War breaks apart.

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.

In an interview with Vanity Fair last March, creator Peter Morgan revealed that the Season 2 “will dive deeper into Philip’s id, exploring the life of the complicated royal, who is often overshadowed by his wife.”

“I find him extraordinarily interesting—his childhood, again, you couldn’t make it up,” Morgan said.

Created by Peter Morgan and directed by Stephen Daldry, the show’s critically-acclaimed first season won two Golden Globe awards, both for Best Television Series-Drama and Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series Drama and has also been nominated for 10 Emmy Awards.

The Crown season two will be released on Netflix starting December 8 in all countries where the streaming site is available.
