Olivia Colman is to play the Queen in the next series of the Netflix television drama The Crown.

We'll be sad to see Claire Foy go at the end of the next season of The Crown, but we couldn't be happier at today's news (October 27) about who'll replace her. The second season is set to pick up in 1956 and will cover the years through to 1963. Seasons 3 and 4 have not been officially ordered, but early production is said to be underway.
