‘The Crown’ Season 3 finally has a premiere date!

It’s been nearly two years since fans of Netflix’s hit The Crown got their fix, and we now know when our favourite royals drama will return to TV: Nov. 17!

Netflix confirmed the date with a 20-second trailer featuring Oscar-winner Olivia Colman, who takes over from Claire Foy as the Queen in Season 3. You can watch it below:

Season 3 picks up in 1964 and runs through 1977, and it features an all new cast. In addition to Olivia, Tobias Menzies (Outlander, Rome) joins as Prince Philip, Helena Bonham Carter will play Princess Margaret, Josh O'Connor will play Prince Charles, Marion Bailey will be the Queen Mother and Ben Daniels will be Antony Armstrong-Jones , Lord Snowdon.

The new season also sees some new roles, with Emerald Fennell stepping in as Camilla Parker Bowles, Erin Doherty starring as Princess Anne and Jason Watkins as late former U.K. Prime Minister Harold Wilson.

Season 4 will begin production later this year, and will feature newcomer Emma Corrin as Princess Diana and Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher.

Earlier this year, Tobias let it slip that Season 3 would drop in November when he sat down with Jo Good on her BBC Radio London show.

“We shot season three and that starts in November,” he said then.

We’re marking our calendars!
