There is to be six series of The Crown (each 10 episodes long) and the second, highly anticipated series is due to arrive on our screens at some point this year. Very few details have been leaked. What we do know so far is that the new instalment will follow the real-life story of the Queen and her family members in the 60s, will feature Claire Foy and Matt Smith (who return to play the Queen and Prince Phillip) and will likely star Michael C. Hall and Jodi Balfour as President Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy.
Michael C. Hall and Jodi Balfour
Michael C. Hall is most famous for playing the twisted antihero Dexter Morgan in Showtime's crime mystery drama Dexter. He will be accompanied by South African actress Jodi Balfour who, in true The Crown style boasts a striking resemblance to her real-life character Jackie Kennedy (we think).
Whenever season two arrives, it will come less than a year after Natalie Portman's groundbreaking portrayal of Jackie Kennedy in Jackie shook our cinemas and earned her an Oscar nomination (we'll find out whether she won on the 26 February). Comparisons between Balfour and Portman will be unavoidable.
The countdown to season two has began. When we know more, we'll tell you.
