Taking place in the tumultuous 1960’s season 2 will star a few familiar faces for one more season before Showrunner Peter Morgan ages the cast with new actors. The show will run for six seasons and include 60 episodes. We Know these actors will return:

  • Claire Foy — Queen Elizabeth II
  • Matt Smith (Doctor Who) — His Royal Highness Philip Mountbatten (the Queen’s husband)
  • Vanessa Kirby — Princess Margret (the Queen’s sister)
  • Victoria Hamilton — Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother

Season 1 was the most expensive show in the history of Netflix, and I don’t expect season 2 to be any less so. Season 1 also featured some pretty terrific actors who racked up a lot of awards for their portrayal.

John Lithgow’s performance as Prime Minister Winston Churchill was something that only comes around every few years, and was a sheer delight to watch.
