Netflix’s drama series — and the most expensive television show ever made —
The Crown follows the life of Queen Elizabeth II and the British royal family.
Claire Foy won a Golden Globe for Best Actress for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in Season 1, and will reprise her role for Season 2, before passing on the baton for Season 3. In fact, every two seasons of the six season series will see a brand new cast portray the British royal family.

While Claire has loved the challenge of the role, she admitted to People that she’s also glad to be taking off Queen Elizabeth’s tiara, describing the cast handover as “a real plus” at the British Film Institute and Radio Times Festival.

While she’s excited to have the chance to move onto to new projects, it will be an emotional farewell. “I will miss it terribly, but I just can’t wait to see where it goes,” Claire said. Season 2 is set to premiere on Netflix in November this year.
The already star-studded cast will be joined by Downton Abbey’s Matthew Goode, who will play Antony Armstrong-Jones, the Earl of Snowden. Dexter star Michel C. Hall will be portraying American president John F. Kennedy. His wife Jackie Kennedy will be played by Jodi Balfour.
