Here's when 'The Crown' Season 2 is debuting on Netflix

Netflix Announces Launch Date for THE CROWN S2 + Shares First Look Images

Polish up your tiara and put on your finest white gloves, because a teaser just dropped for the second season of The Crown, and things are HEATING up in Buckingham Palace. Queen Liz is notoriously private, so any glimpse into her private life, even a fictionalized version, was a call few could resist.

Heavy, lonely, and betrayed is the head that wears "The Crown" in Season 2, but by Churchill we can not wait to see her back in power his December.

Viewers remember how she went through an extremely tough time last season, having to give up her love Captain Peter Townsend at The Queen's request.

Of Queen Elizabeth's journey in Season 2, Foy told Entertainment Weekly, she "starts to realize she needs to pay more attention to her personal life". It begins with the soldiers of Her Majesty's Armed Forces fighting an illegal war in Egypt and ends with the downfall of her third Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan, after multiple scandals. The first season explored her life from the beginning her marriage in 1947 through her first years on the throne. "Not one has lasted the course", she says in the trailer. The period drama left off in 1955, and Season 2 will pick up not long after.

While we'll have to wait until December 8 to witness the juicy drama in store for The Crown's second season, at least we have these first-look photos to tide us over. John Lithgow as Winston Churchill will not be returned, but new faces Matthew Goode (of Downton Abbey fame) and Michael C. Hall are joining as Princess Margaret's husband and John F. Kennedy, respectively.

Earlier this year the first series won two Golden Globes and two SAG awards.
