The UK platform of Netflix has just announced that it will begin to distribute its biggest original series to date now that everything’s coming together. Netflix will host the debut of their new series titled “The Crown,” an upcoming drama that will center around the life of Queen Elizabeth II. Read on.

According to Tubefilter.com, Claire Foy, Matt Smith and John Lithgow have been cast as the three main cast of the show. Foy will play the role of Queen Elizabeth at the age of 25, Smith will play as Prince Philip and Lithgow will play the role of Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

The main format of the series is to show the life of Queen Elizabeth. The outlet also reported that tt is very unlikely that these actors will stay for long until the second season because each season aims to cover a decade of the life of the Queen, so that means the show needs to change cast members each season.

No official release date has been announced yet for this upcoming series, but it will debut next year, 2016. It is reported that the Netflix spent $170 million for the rights to the series and with that huge amount of expense, viewers have such high hopes for the series as well as the video platform.

Hopefully, “The Crown” will live up to our expectations.
