The Crown is nearly ready to welcome two newcomers to the Netflix royal family.
On Tuesday, the streamer debuted new photos of season 4, showing Olivia Colman's "Queen" and Helena Bonham Carter's "Princess Margaret" back for more royal drama. Cast newcomers Emma Corrin—as Princess Diana—and Gillian Anderson—as Margaret Thatcher—also appear in the latest preview, which follows a teaser trailer released in late August.

"Change is coming," the Netflix series wrote on Twitter, above four new preview shots of season 4. It's the best look so far at Corrin's "Princess Diana," after the actress appeared only from behind in the initial trailer.

Anderson's "Margaret Thatcher" was seen in the trailer, in a scene similar to the above shot of her waving. Colman, Bonham Carter, Tobias Menzies, and Josh O'Connor all reprise their season 3 roles in the upcoming season.
The Crown season 4 release date: November 15
The long-awaited Crown season 4 hits Netflix on Nov. 15. We can now add this series of preview images to the teaser trailer that dropped on Aug. 20.
The new season is expected to cover Prince Charles and Princess Diana's love story, and the royal wedding was previewed in the above trailer. Actor Thomas Byrne will also debut as "Prince Andrew" in season 4, but he hasn't been spotted in any previews yet.
Netflix offers this official description of the new season: "As the 1970s are drawing to a close, Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) and her family find themselves preoccupied with safeguarding the line of succession by securing an appropriate bride for Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor), who is still unmarried at 30.
"As the nation begins to feel the impact of divisive policies introduced by Britain's first female Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson), tensions arise between her and the Queen which only grow worse as Thatcher leads the country into the Falklands War, generating conflict within the Commonwealth. While Charles’ romance with a young Lady Diana Spencer (Emma Corrin) provides a much-needed fairytale to unite the British people, behind closed doors, the Royal family is becoming increasingly divided."
Watch for The Crown season 4 on Nov. 15! And keep an eye out for an official trailer before then.
