In the press room at the Golden Globes, The Crown‘s creator Peter Morgan teased out season 2 for the Netflix series. Tonight, the show took home best drama and best drama TV actress for Claire Foy who plays Queen Elizabeth II.
“The danger of writing a story of someone with a long life is that the story goes on and on, and on. We’re filming the second season at the moment and that takes us up through 1964. The world changes. We leave behind a certain kind of Britain and enter a new Britain,” revealed Morgan.
Last month, Morgan further revealed that season 2 would center around the backstory of Elizabeth’s husband Prince Philip and the boyhood days of her direct heir Prince Charles. The series was even shooting in South Africa for a portion of Philip’s Commonwealth tour. That took him away from his wife and young family for several months.
Morgan previously won a Golden Globe in 2007 for his screenplay for The Queen.
