What we know from the new teaser of Netflix's The Crown: Season 3
Netflix has had a fair few successes in its trailblazing path to dominate the world of On Demand streaming. Unquestionably one of those is The Crown - the creative biopic series charting the life of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II - and now, fresh with a full cast update, it is getting set to dominate your evening viewing once again.
Nearly two years on from the end of its award-winning second series, the first teaser trailer of The Crown: Season 3 gives us a first glimpse of newly-minted Oscar-winner Olivia Colman in the role of Queen Liz herself. As the third season will focus on the monarch's life through the late 1960s, Colman takes over the mantle from actress Claire Foy, with Game of Thrones' Tobias Menzies and Helena Bonham Carter cast as Prince Philip and Princess Margaret respectively.
The first two seasons were set between 1947, when the Queen and Prince Philip wed, up until 1964, when their youngest son, Prince Edward was born.
The third will continue from that year through to around 1970, a period during which Harold Wilson served as head of the British government and the British empire decolonisation nations in Africa and the Caribbean.
The teaser shows Colman in full regalia for the first time. Wearing a diamond tiara and a blue sash, which represents the Royal Victorian Order of Queen Elizabeth II, the actress walks past a partially open door before pausing, and directly staring into the camera.
The 20-second clip doesn't give much away about the forthcoming season, but it does show the poise that Colman will bring to the role.
