Look image released of Olivia Colman as the Queen in The Crown

Showrunner Peter Morgan decided from the get-go to recast the series every two seasons with The Crown expected to conclude after six runs.

The Twitter account for "The Crown" posted the first look at Colman with a simple message for the show's fans: "Patience".

Netflix on Sunday released the first image of Olivia Colman as the long-reigning monarch in the popular series. Beginning more or less where the last season ended, Season 3 will cover the 1960s and 70s. I was utterly gripped watching it, a proper "just one more" feeling.

Assessing the Putin meeting, Trump said: "Nothing bad is going to come out of it, and maybe some good will come out". He also added that the Fake New Media would not report the truth on the subject.

The Netflix series traces Elizabeth's journey from princess to queen and through the years of her reign, beginning in the 1950s. I think Claire Foy is an absolute genius, she's an incredibly hard act to follow. Olivia had earlier said in a statement about portraying the Queen in the show. And, the role of Prince Philip will be played by Tobias Menzies.

The first two seasons received critical acclaim for its stellar acting and accurate portrayals of the royal family, with John Lithgow taking home the Emmy for Supporting Actor in 2017 for his performance as Winston Churchill.

Elsewhere, Ben Daniels will play Antony Armstrong-Jones, starring alongside Helena Bonham Carter's Princess Margaret, in the next season of the royal drama, which will launch in 2019. This year, The Crown snagged 13 Emmys nominations including Best Drama and a Lead Actress nod for Foy.
