Queen Elizabeth II's ongoing story is finally returning to the small screen. A new teaser also offers a glimpse of Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II as she takes over the role from Claire Foy.

Ben Daniels (Lord Snowdon) and Helena Bonham Carter (Princess Margaret) will also star.

Season 3 picks up in 1964 and runs through 1977, and it features an all new cast.

Season three could well be the most dramatic yet; although, season four does promise the arrival of Lady Diana Spencer and the notorious premiership of Margaret Thatcher, Britain's first female Prime Minister. Jason Watkins will play former Prime Minister Harold Wilson, and Princess Anne will be portrayed by Erin Doherty.
