The Tudor era in England serves as the setting for this teen historical drama. It follows the life of Elizabeth at the age of 14. As the title suggests, it explores Elizabeth’s real life as she struggles to become queen on her own, without the help of her parents, in a world full of sexual politics.
Will discrimination prevent a girl from taking credit for something that is rightfully hers? Why is it thought that boys can handle big things better than girls? These are some of the questions that this drama aims to address. When Elizabeth’s father, King Henry VIII, passes away, he decides to make nine-year-old Edward VI, his first and only legitimate son, the heir to the throne. Elizabeth now struggles to maintain her good reputation in front of her half-brother but ends up on the list of undesirables under Mary, who takes over as queen after Edward dies at the age of 15.
This historical drama was created and written by Anya Reiss, who is also known for the television series “Ackley Bridge.” It is currently ongoing with 3 episodes available to watch. On July 3, 2022, the fourth episode of this eight-part drama will air.

Becoming Elizabeth Season 1 Recap
The teenage Queen’s true, yet little-known, pre-crown history is covered in the first season. It depicts the court in disarray following Henry VIII’s death and sets the stage for political and sexual intrigue. Elizabeth becomes an orphan when her father dies. Now his three children struggle and fight for power to come into their hands to take complete control of the country. In order to assert her authority, Elizabeth must endure suffering from the men in her immediate vicinity.
Elizabeth and Thomas’ covert relationship with Catherine was made known in the most recent episode, which aired on June 26, 2022. Elizabeth’s stepmother tries to keep the two of them apart for Elizabeth’s benefit because if the news reaches Chelsea Manor, she will suffer a much worse fate.
What has the audience so enthralled is the question of whether Elizabeth and Thomas Seymor will end up together. Answers to which, hopefully, will appear in upcoming episodes and consequently in the upcoming season.
Becoming Elizabeth Season 2 Story
Elizabeth is currently too meek, and we want to see Elizabeth who helped build Great Britain. Ideally, season 2 will put more emphasis on her struggle to capture the crown while overcoming every challenge in her way. That is all the information that is currently available, but if season 2 does arrive, we can hope for even more breathtaking drama.
