Posted January 06, 2018

If you've finished binge-watching the second season of The Crown on Netflix, you're probably wondering when the third season will arrive.

Showrunner Morgan spoke about his decision to recast the roles past year, explaining to Screen Daily: "I feel that when we reach 1963-64 we've gone as far as we can go with Claire Foy without having to do silly things in terms of make-up to make her look older... Someone has to bring their own fatigue to it", Morgan told Variety prior to the series' premiere in 2016. "The feelings we all have as 50-year-olds are different than the feelings we all have as 30-year-olds", Morgan explained. She would star alongside Olivia Colman, replacing Claire Foy as Elizabeth. "That informs everything we do". In 2010, the Harry Potter actress received an Oscar nomination for her role as the Queen Mother (Princess Margaret's mom) in The King's Speech.
