Netflix Sets a Date for the Return of “The Crown,” See Oscar Winner Olivia Colman as the New Queen Elizabeth II


Netflix has set a date for the return of “The Crown,” the wildly popular series about Queen Elizabeth II. Claire Foy was the award winning young queen, but now we have Oscar winner Olivia Colman ready to take over.

Also in the cast: Tobias Menzies as Prince Phillip, Oscar nominee and Emmy winner Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Ben Daniels as Tony Armstrong-Jones, Josh O’Connor as Prince Charles, Erin Doherty as Princess Anne, Marion Bailey as The Queen Mother and Jason Watkins as Prime Minister Harold Wilson. The third season spans 1964-1977.

Colman appears in this little teaser below. She looks pretty imperious. I’m waiting to see series 4 or 5 when she finds out Andrew is a friend of Jeffrey Epstein!
