It's been nearly two years since we were dropped into the complex, controversial, and always captivating inner life of Queen Elizabeth II and the rest of the royal family in season two of The Crown. Fortunately Netflix's historical drama, which has been filming season three over the last year, is set to return this Autumn, on Nov. 17, to be exact. Netflix revealed the news in true royal style, with a mock-up of the easel that's placed outside of Buckingham Palace to announce important royal births.
They also released a tiny teaser video, giving us a glimpse of Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II.
We can't wait to see what the new cast will do with their roles — joining Colman is Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip, while Helena Bonham Carter is replacing Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret, and Ben Daniels will step into Matthew Goode's shoes to play Anthony Armstrong Jones. We'll also meet an older Prince Charles, played by Josh O'Connor. Sadly we'll have to wait until season four for a glimpse of Princess Diana.
