The second season of Netflix's wildly popular series The Crown is still a few months away, but we're already thinking ahead to season three. Here's what we know so far about the third installment of Peter Morgan's take on Queen Elizabeth II's reign.

IT WILL HAVE A DECIDEDLY DIFFERENT CAST.

With each season covering roughly a decade, the royals in The Crown are aging much more quickly than the cast members playing them, and so an executive decision was made that the cast would be replaced after the second season. "They're getting rid of all of us," Claire Foy told Vulture in December of last year. "After two seasons, that's it, I'm gone."

Show-runner Peter Morgan further explained, "I feel that when we reach 1963-64 we've gone as far as we can go with Claire Foy without having to do silly things in terms of makeup to make her look older. She can't help the fact she's as young as she is."

There's no word yet on who will replace Foy and her on-screen partner Matt Smith, but we'll be sure to update as soon as we know more.

CAMILLA WILL BE INTRODUCED IN THE THIRD SEASON.

At the BFI & Radio Times Television Festival in April, Producer Suzanne Mackie revealed that Camilla, who will eventually go on to become Prince Charles's second wife and the Duchess of Cornwall, will be introduced in season three.

"Peter’s already talking about the most wonderful things," Mackie said. "You start meeting Camilla Parker Bowles in season three."

She also said that seasons three and four "are being mapped out."

Camilla and Charles first dated in the early '70s, which certainly fits the timeline for season three; we can't wait to see what Morgan does with their rather scandalous relationship history.

THE SEASON WILL LIKELY START IN THE MID '60S.

Season two will reportedly take the royal family up to 1964, and if Morgan keeps with his chronological structure, season three will pick up right where the story left off.

IT HAS YET TO BE OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED BY NETFLIX.

Rumors are swirling certainly, but Netflix has yet to confirm that a third season is officially happening, so keep your fingers crossed!
