With season 2 of The Crown just around the corner, Olivia Colman (“Broadchurch”, “Murder on the Orient Express”), has been cast as The Queen in Season 3 of the hit show. The end of season 2 is set in 1963 and will then take a time jump – hence the new cast. No other cast members have been announced yet though so we don’t know who will be taking over from Matt Smith as Prince Philip.
Season 2 of “The Crown” arrives on 8th December.
