When does The Crown season 2 start on Netflix?

Tuesday, December 5th 2017 by Oprah Flash

The wait is over, The Crown returns to our screens this Friday (8 December) with Claire Foy and Matt Smith returning to their roles as young royals, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.

The first season proved to be very popular with super-fans lighting up Twitter with anticipation for season two.

The biographical drama takes you deep into the stories and scandals behind the walls of Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street. The Crown brings to life the budding romance between the royal pair along with the political rivalries and events that shaped the first few years of The Queen's reign.

Season two’s release comes not long after the The Queen celebrated her 70th wedding anniversary with Prince Philip last month.

Over the course of 10 new episodes, which all will be released at the end of the week, we’ll see the Queen having to deal with trouble in her marriage. In the trailer we hear the young Elizabeth being told, “you married a wild spirit, trying to tame him is no use”.

We’ll also see Princess Margaret’s romance and marriage to photographer Lord Snowdon featuring in the storyline.

Crown-mania has spread like wildfire through Britain since the release of the first season. Three has even launched a ‘Borrow My Corgi’ campaign in celebration of the upcoming second season.

Inspired by The Queen’s love of Corgis, Three is launching a competition for super-fans to enter and if you win you can have a four-legged friend delivered to you door so you can feel like royalty while bingeing on the new season. The scheme starts this Friday and runs up to Sunday 10 December.

The Crown is exclusively being shown on Netflix and there are few providers offering the service for free or letting you watch it without dipping into your data.

Unlimited data for Netflix with Three's Go-Binge

The Borrow My Corgi campaign is promoting Three’s Go-Binge feature. Three has added Go Binge to its pay-monthly Advanced plans, which is ideal if you spend a lot of time streaming content. The provider has teamed up with video and music streaming sites including Netflix, TVPlayer, Apple Music, Deezer and SoundCloud.
