There’s nothing quite like a British drama, and Netflix’s upcoming series about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II is guaranteed to raise the bar for similar fare.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Crown:
At a time when Britain was recovering from war and her empire was in decline, a young woman took the throne as a matter of duty not desire. Prepare for a world full of intrigue and revelations in The Crown.
Starring Claire Foy (Wolf Hall) as Queen Elizabeth II, Matt Smith (Doctor Who) as Prince Philip, John Lithgow (Intersteller) as Winston Churchhil, and Jared Harris (Lincoln) as King George VI, The Crown is set to be a gripping watch for royal enthusiasts and those of us who just love drama. By the looks of the official trailer below, the 10-episode series will not shy away from showing the heated discussions between the newly crowned queen and her husband, who appears to struggle with her new place in the world.
The Crown is set to premiere on Netflix on November 4.
