After much anticipation, Season Three of The Crown is now streaming on Netflix. Fans of the show were especially curious about this season as this would be the first time Claire Foy would no longer be playing the Queen, but instead, Olivia Colman would take over the role. Due to the time jump, the lead actors were recast rather than simply made-up and digitally aged to look older. Likewise, Tobias Menzies replaces Matt Smith as Prince Philip, and Helena Bonham Carter replaces Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret. However, it has been confirmed that Claire Foy will be returning in Season 4 to reprise her role as Queen Elizabeth II, most likely in a flashback to the Queen's earlier years.
