As well as giving us a date, Netflix also offered a first look at actress Olivia Colman as the Queen, in a brand new teaser trailer.

Olivia Colman starrer The Crown will premiere on November 17 on Netflix.

This comes almost two years on from the second season of the British drama, which launched on December 8, 2017.

Colman has taken over the reins from Claire Foy, who was seen in the avatar in the first two seasons of the show.

For fans of the hit Netflix series The Crown, waiting two long years for the third season has proven, for lack of a better term, a royal pain.

Calling all fans of The Crown: Your royally long wait for Season 3 is almost over.

Colman will replace Claire Foy as Her Majesty in the eagerly anticipated show, with Tobias Menzies taking over the role of Prince Philip from Matt Smith.

According to creator Peter Morgan, season three of The Crown will take place during 1964 and 1972 and is expected to cover major events in British history, like Princess Margaret's affair with Roddy Llewellyn, Margaret Thatcher's political rise, and the introduction of Camilla Parker Bowles.

Queen Elizabeth II's ongoing story is finally returning to the small screen.

Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret and Ben Daniels as Tony Armstrong-Jones in The Crown, Season three. I'm also curious if the show will continue to feel like The Crown, or if Season 3 will seem like a reset of sorts since they've now got a new cast.
