ROYAL RUMBLES

ZOOMER Magazine - - ZOOM IN - — MC

The Sec­ond World War is over, the monar­chy faces in­creased scru­tiny for be­ing out of touch and the Queen deals with the trou­bling task of rein­ing in both her rest­less hubby and re­bel­lious sis­ter. Such is the set­ting for the sec­ond sea­son de­but of The Crown, which re­turns to Net­flix on Dec. 8. Af­ter rack­ing up a slew of awards and ac­co­lades for its first sea­son, the drama sees the Royal Fam­ily plunged into the 1950s feel­ing the post-war hang­over, at­tempt­ing to find their foot­ing amid crises both per­sonal and po­lit­i­cal. And while view­ers might mourn the de­par­ture of John Lith­gow in his Emmy-win­ning role as Win­ston Churchill, they can look for­ward to the ar­rival of an equally fa­mous states­man this sea­son – Pres­i­dent John F. Kennedy (played by Dex­ter’s Michael C. Hall), with Bomb Girls star Jodi Bal­four by his side as First Lady Jac­que­line Kennedy.
