“The Handmaid’s Tale” boasts 10 cast members on the voting ballot, ahead of only Netflix’s “The Crown” at five. Comparatively, the other nominated dramas each feature more than a dozen actors: HBO’s “Game of Thrones” at 30, Netflix’s “Stranger Things” at 17 and NBC’s “This Is Us” at 13. In recent years “Game of Thrones” and “Downton Abbey” always had the biggest casts, with “Downton” beating the HBO fantasy series in 2014 and 2015.
The acclaimed drama is set to revamp its cast with older actors as the story moves forward to 1965 and beyond. Bonham Carter will replace Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret, while Olivia Colman is set to take over from Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II.
Bonham Carter has of course previously portrayed Princess Margaret’s mother, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, in 2010’s The King’s Speech, receiving Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for her performance, as well as the BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress.
The first two seasons of The Crown are available now on Netflix, and feature a cast that includes Claire Foy, Matt Smith, Vanessa Kirby, Eileen Atkins, Victoria Hamilton, Jeremy Northam , Ben Miles, Greg Wise, Jared Harris, JOhn Lithgow and Matthew Goode.
Claire Foy, Matt Smith and Victoria Hamilton lead the cast of the drama, which this time sees most of the action take place in the 1960s.
‘With the world undergoing great changes, a damaged British monarchy must confront its past in order to have a future,’ says the official blurb.
“You married a wild spirit, trying to tame them is no use.” Elizabeth is told in the trailer. Claire Foy reprises her role as Queen Elizabeth II, though will be replaced in season three and four by Olivia Colman, as previously reported.

Netflix has unveiled a premiere date and teaser for “The Crown’s” second season, and things are looking especially stressful for Queen Elizabeth II. “The rumors still haven’t gone away,” the Queen (Claire Foy, “Wolf Hall”) narrates, presumably referring to her husband’s infidelities. “I’ve learned more about humiliation in the past few weeks than I hoped I would in a lifetime.”
Among the monarch’s other grievances are disappointing Prime Ministers, family drama, and the continued deterioration of the British Empire. When her husband (Matt Smith, “Doctor Who”) points out that “there are some of us who are there for you no matter what,” Elizabeth scoffs and replies, “If only.”
Scheduled to return December 8, 2017, the new season of “The Crown” “bears witness to the end of the age of deference, and ushers in the revolutionary era of the 1960s,” Netflix details. In addition to Prince Philip’s shortcomings, the Queen will cope with an illegal war in Egypt and a scandal involving Prime Minister Harold Macmillan.
Philippa Lowthorpe (“Swallows and Amazons,” “Call the Midwife”) is among the directors on “The Crown’s” upcoming season.
Victoria Hamilton (“Doctor Foster”) and Vanessa Kirby (Thea Sharrock’s “Me Before You”) also star on “The Crown” as the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret, respectively. The Netflix series was created by Peter Morgan, who wrote the 2006 drama “The Queen,” another story about Queen Elizabeth II.
“The Crown’s” first season garnered 10 Emmy nominations and earned Golden Globes for Best TV Actress (Foy) and Best Television Series.
