Netflix revealed early Monday that it will honor you with the royal presence of the third season of “The Crown” this fall.

The streaming service has set Nov. 17 as the launch date for “The Crown” Season 3, which spans 1964-1977.

Watch the premiere date reveal in the very brief teaser above, which gives you a glimpse of Olivia Colman taking over the role of Elizabeth II from Claire Foy, as the monarch enters the next phase of her life.

Along with Oscar winner Colman, Season 3 stars Tobias Menzies as Prince Phillip, Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Ben Daniels as Tony Armstrong-Jones, Josh O’Connor as Prince Charles, Erin Doherty as Princess Anne, Marion Bailey as the Queen Mother and Jason Watkins as Prime Minister Harold Wilson.

The way Netflix has worked (and is expected to continue to work) this particular show is to swap out its actors every two seasons to allow for the progression of the story of Queen Elizabeth II’s life.

Foy played Queen Elizabeth opposite Matt Smith’s Prince Philip on the first two seasons of the royal drama, with Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret and Matthew Goode as Lord Snowdon.

“The Crown” Season 3 will launch Nov. 19 on Netflix.
