Foy, 33, who earned a best actress Golden Globe for her portrayal of the Queen a year ago, has previously said she will "miss the role terribly".

"Watching the first series was blissful because I had no idea". The show is also set to cover Prince Charles' marriage to Princess Diana and his subsequent affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles - now the Duchess of Cornwall - and the Margaret Thatcher era. Matt Smith, who played the queen's husband in the first two seasons, will not reprise his role on Season 3 either; Tobias Menzies will play a middle-aged Prince Philip instead. Based on the award-winning play, "The Audience", the series reunites creator/writer Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon) with director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) and producer Andy Harries (The Queen).

Actor Josh O'Connor ("God's Own Country") has been rumored as a strong candidate.
