There’s a new Queen!
Olivia Colman will be stepping into the role of Elizabeth II in the upcoming third season of The Crown.
You’ll remember her from The Favourite.
By her side will be Tobias Menzies, who is taking over the role of the Duke of Edinburgh.
In other words, you can bid Claire Foy and Matt Smith goodbye as we move into a new era of Liz’s reign.
The third and fourth series will span the years 1964-76, with series one and two having covered the early years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, from 1947-63.
Show-runner Peter Morgan is not giving anything away just yet, but history tells us that series three, if it does indeed take us from ’64-’70, will see the monarch cultivating her steadiest relationship with a Prime Minister yet in Harold Wilson, who served as head of the British government during this period.
Check out the teaser complete with release date:
If November 17 feels like too long a wait, fans of The Crown may also enjoy the following series, which you can stream now on Showmax:
A Very English Scandal is set in 1960s England. The politician Jeremy Thorpe begins a whirlwind affair with a young stable hand, Norman Scott. But when the relationship turns sour and Jeremy’s career goes from strength to strength, Norman becomes a secret that Jeremy is desperate to hide.
Succession is the story of the Roy family, who control one of the biggest media and entertainment conglomerates in the world. What will the future hold for them once their ageing father begins to step back from the company?
