Critic Consensus: The Crown continues its reign with a self-assured sophomore season that indulges in high drama and sumptuous costumes.

News & Interviews for The Crown: Season 2
Some viewers may look for exactly this in their television: a beautiful recreation of historical events, connected by safe assumptions about the people who lived through them. But television is capable of so much more.
In all, series two has slightly less to say than the first, even if it is covering rather more tumultuous times.
Like the Royal family, it feels as if The Crown relishes its indulgences once in a while.
Philip is dignified in one moment, a misogynist fool in the next; Matt Smith is superb in this role.
Morgan not only has a series to match his 2006 Oscar-winning movie, The Queen, but finally one to exceed it. The Crown -- the second season, anyway -- is magnificent.
