It's official: After a two-year hiatus, The Crown finally has a release date for season three. The show, which has earned several Emmy and Golden Globe awards, will continue chronicling the reign of Queen Elizabeth II with an entirely new cast, due to an interest in maintaining age accuracy while portraying over six decades of the monarch's reign. The new episodes drop on Netflix on November 17, a date the streaming service announced alongside a photo of recent Oscar-winner Olivia Colman as HRM with two corgis, and that only means one thing for those of us over here in America: maybe we can avoid discussing politics this Thanksgiving in favor of having a heated discussion about the show we all just binge-watched, or when all else fails, fawn over the dogs.
The third season will focus on the monarch's reign from 1964 to 1977, a period which will include political events under Prime Minister Harold Wilson, Prince Philip's reaction to the Apollo 11 moon landing (which recently celebrated its 50th anniversary), and the introduction of Camilla, whose relationship with Prince Charles will lead to romance and drama galore. Below, see photos of the series and its new cast, and get excited to obsess over the royal drama all over again in just a few months.
