Season 2 of Netflix’s The Crown will premiere on December 8.

The first trailer for Netflix’s lavish drama, The Crown has been released. There are also new images, courtesy Entertainment Weekly.

The Queen appears to be fitting her role with more confidence this season, which will reportedly cover the years from 1956-64. Claire Foy, who won a Golden Globe for her performance as the monarch, reprises her role for one final season, as does Matt Smith.

The season will follow the royal couple as they travel the world, “everywhere from Tonga to Papua New Guinea, and even the Antarctic.”

The season will also introduce Michael C Hall as John F Kennedy, who visits the Queen with his wife, Jackie. “Her focus is really on this dazzling woman — and not just because of her husband’s flirting, but the whole attention on Jackie as a phenomenon,” the episode’s director, Stephen Daldry, told EW.

“I think (Queen Elizabeth) starts to realize she needs to pay more attention to her personal life now that the other part of her life is going all right,” Foy told EW. “The world’s changing faster than anyone can catch up with. There is no letup. She just keeps having to go from one crisis to another to another, and at some point, it’s about five crises at the same time and you have no idea how she manages to get up in the morning,” she said.

Season 2 of the Crown will begin streaming on Netflix on December 8. You can read our review of the first season here.
