The Crown has found its new star.
The Netflix series has tapped British actress Olivia Colman to replace Emmy nominee Claire Foy in the series.
Each series of The Crown follows roughly a decade in the life of the Queen, and producers planned from the outset to recast their lead roles after series 2. The new series is expected to roughly cover from 1957 to 1964. Foy reprises her role in the upcoming second series of the drama, which will be released by Netflix on Dec. 8.
Matt Smith (Prince Philip), Vanessa Kirby (Princess Margaret), Victoria Hamilton (the Queen Mother), and Jeremy Northam (Antony Eden) are also expected to return. Joining the cast for the new episodes are Matthew Goode (playing Lord Snowdon, the photographer married Princess Margaret) and Michael C. Hall (as none other than John F. Kennedy).
