Fan of the royal family or not, The Crown‘s thematic tensions had viewers wanting more of the Netflix original series. At the end of season 1 we were left with a sick-looking Eden popping pills and shooting drugs. Meanwhile Elizabeth became “Elizabeth Regina,” a woman who sacrificed her sister and husband for the kingdom.

Peter Morgan, series writer, is planning to tell the Queen’s story in six seasons. Here’s what we know about the next section of the tale.
