Get ready for a final royal wave from Netflix’s hit show The Crown, as it was announced today that there will be a fifth and final season of the show, with Imelda Staunton taking the role of Queen Elizabeth II.

Staunton has been a vital part of British theater and cinema in her extensive career, although she is probably most famous for her role as Professor Dolores Umbridge in the Harry Potter movies. She has, however, also starred in such movies and TV shows as Downton Abbey, Pride, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, and will star in the upcoming thriller Amulet.

According to See What’s Next, Staunton has loved watching the show from the start and stated that she is honored to be in company with Olivia Coleman (who’s in the show’s current third season) and Claire Foy (who played the Queen in the first two seasons).

Staunton’s season will be the show’s final one, as creator and showrunner Peter Morgan has announced in the Hollywood Reporter today.

Until then, you can catch the current season of The Crown on Netflix!
