The world is waiting with bated breath for The Crown, a new Netflix original series about Queen Elizabeth II that will premiere on November 4th. Perfect for those who enjoy a good political power struggle, the show focuses on the early years of Elizabeth’s adulthood, beginning in 1947 with her marriage to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. What follows are dramatic, behind-the-scenes moments that depict the royal empire attempting to maintain peace across the UK – all filmed with a sense of grit and audacity.

The New Netflix Show We’re Royally Excited About

Apart from the intriguing story line, the series is also getting a lot of attention for financial reasons; it’s Netflix’s most expensive show to date, costing a reported $100 million dollars, with a large chunk of the expenses going towards the costumes. For example, costume designer Michele Clapton had a replica of Queen Elizabeth’s wedding dress made for the series that cost even more than the original gown.

The Crown stars Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II, Matt Smith as Prince Philip, and John Lithgow as Sir Winston Churchill. And with a bloody opening scene that already has people talking, The Queen’s Stephen Daldry in the director’s chair, and ten episodes available for immediate viewing on November 4th, it’s safe to say that Friday can’t get here soon enough.
