Netflix Releases a First Look at Olivia Colman as the Queen for Season 3 of “The Crown”

Posted on July 16, 2018

So the social media accounts for The Crown unexpectedly dropped this image this morning with the attached message:


We don’t know about you guys, but we are suddenly feeling anything but patient for season 3 to arrive. Unforch, we’ll have to wait until next year, but kudos to the fine folks at Netflix for knowing how to be great big teases about it. You bitches.


She looks AMAZING, of course. We couldn’t wait to see her all done up in Betty drag with the helmet hair to match. We’re pleased to see that they didn’t go the somewhat easy and cliched route of frumping her up too much. While it’s true that Elizabeth’s style got more matronly and conservative over time (having never truly been exciting or trendy to begin with), we thought it would be too jarring going from Claire Foy to Olivia if they also opted to de-style her a little at the same time. This seems to thread the needle nicely. She’s impeccably turned out but not at all stylish for the time period. The hair could do with a little fluffing. Her helmet had a little more height than that.

Love the little clenched fist of repressed rage. No idea what that’s all about, but something has Betty so upset she forgot to pick up her saucer with her teacup.
