Netflix had a six-year plan in mind for their pricy, thoughtful royal drama The Crown, even before the show debuted to critical acclaim and multiple award nominations. Given that each season will cover roughly a decade—Season 1 ran from 1947 through to 1955—it's not a huge surprise to learn that we shouldn't get too attached to Claire Foy as the stoical young Elizabeth II, or Matt Smith as her sulky husband Philip, or Vanessa Kirby as her flighty sister Margaret.

"After two seasons, that's it, I'm gone," Foy told Vulture. "They're getting rid of all of us. I don't [know] how they're planning on doing it, but they're such an incredible bunch of directors and producers that it's gonna be different and exciting."

Up until now, it hasn't been clear whether the show's producers would opt to recast its central roles, or use aging prosthetics to keep Foy, Smith, Kirby et al. around. On balance, the latter would probably have been borderline unsustainable: "There'll be no 3 AM makeup call for me!" Foy notes happily.

Season 2 has already started filming, and Foy reveals that it'll pick up "pretty much where we left the last season" without much of a time jump, and that the season "will go through another ten years' time."
