Netflix has a new queen. Deadline reports Olivia Colman has been cast as the new Queen Elizabeth for seasons three and four of The Crown.
The historical drama chronicles the personal life of Queen Elizabeth II from her coronation in 1952 through the second half of the 20th century. The cast includes Claire Foy, Matt Smith, John Lithgow, Victoria Hamilton, Jared Harris, Vanessa Kirby, and Dame Eileen Atkins.
Colman will take over the role of Queen Elizabeth from Claire Foy, who has played the British royal for two seasons. Even though Netflix has not officially renewed The Crown for seasons three and four, Colman’s casting announcement all but confirms the period drama will continue.
