The Crown Wins Best Drama Golden Globe; What's In Store for Season 2?
BEVERLY HILLS, CA - JANUARY 08: (L-R) Cast and crew of 'The Crown,' winner of Best Series - Drama, pose in the press room during the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 8, 2017 in Beverly Hills, California. (
The Crown was a big Golden Globes winner on Sunday night—with series star Claire Foy taking home an award for Best Actress, Drama and the show winning Best TV Series, Drama—but the team is hard at work on Season 2.
Writer Peter Morgan acknowledged the show has a wealth of material at its disposal (with Queen Elizabeth's life being the show's inspiration), "it's painful," he laughed backstage to reporters. "The danger of writing a story about someone with a long life is the story goes on and on!"
In the show's second season, the events "will take us to 1964," Morgan teased. "We're about three episodes in…as it goes into the '60s, the world changes."
After Season 2, fans should expect a significant change with the on-screen talent. "We will then…reach the point where we have to start thinking about a new cast," Morgan said. "Our actors will reach the limit of what they can reasonably play."
