Award-winning Netflix series The Crown is gearing up for its third season, which will see a new cast stepping into the already-established roles of the British Royal Family. The first two seasons of the series followed the House of Windsor from 1947 to 1956 and 1957 to 1964 respectively, with season 3 expected to do similarly, and cover the next decade-plus.
In two new images from Entertainment Weekly, we get additional glimpses of Olivia Coleman as Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and Tobias Menzies as Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh. Coleman steps in for Claire Foy, and Menzies for Matt Smith, who played the royal pair for the first two seasons of the series.
The second image features Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, and Ben Daniels as Antony Armstrong-Jones, Margaret’s husband. Vanessa Kirby played Princess Margaret in seasons 1 and 2, with Matthew Goode as Armstrong-Jones.
We know that several other new faces are joining the cast in season 3 (including possibly Charles Dance, although the role hasn’t been confirmed yet), which is due to hit Netflix sometime in 2019. Season 4 will reportedly begin filming soon.
