The Crown Season 2 Creator Peter Morgan Shares Details of New Season
According to TV Line, Morgan has shared that shooting for The Crown Season 2 is in progress. The creator said, “We’re filming the second season right now, and that will take us through to 1964.”
It was earlier being said that the upcoming season will feature Queen Elizabeth II’s troubled marriage. Morgan mentioned that Season 2 will also handle subjects like big cultural changes in the sixties and the Suez Crisis.
The creator also stated, “As Britain goes into the ’60s, the world changes.” When Morgan was asked whether he planned to have the show continuing till its Season 6, he responded, “It’s not funny.” He added, “It’s just painful.”
Morgan feels that there is a risk involved while writing a story about someone who is living and then dragging the story on and on. In other news, International Business Times reported that though Claire Foy has been receiving critical acclaims for her performance in Season 1, viewers may not see her for long in the series. The 32-year-old English actress will not be continuing after Season 2 ends.
Even Morgan said that Foy may not be seen in the lead role in Season 3. He told that after the end of The Crown Season 2, they need to think about a fresh cast.
