The Crown Season 3 first look: Olivia Colman is the Queen

Season three of The Crown is set to debut on Netflix in 2019 and has already been renewed for a fourth season.

According to THR, The Crown season 3 will cover "the Wilson era", the 1964-1970 and 1974-1976 terms of Prime Minister Howard Wilson.

And the rest of the new cast is just as impressive with Princess Margaret now being played by Helena Bonham Carter and Ben Daniels starring as Antony Armstrong-Jones. "I was utterly gripped watching it, a problem 'just one more" feeling.

Last year Colman said she was "so thrilled" to play the Queen, adding that Foy would be an "incredibly hard act to follow".

Foy, 38, previously spoke about leaving "The Crown", telling Entertainment Weekly that the experience of saying goodbye to the character that earned her an Emmy Award nomination was "surreal".

The role of Prince Phillip, who has been played by Matt Smith in series one and two, is now being played by Tobias Menzies in the next seasons.
