Netflix series “The Crown” brought home a pair of golden statues at the 2017 Golden Globes. The drama won the award for best drama series and best actress in a drama series (Claire Foy).

English actress Foy has received praises for her performance of Queen Elizabeth II in Season 1 of the show. But the 32-year-old may not stick around forever to play the monarch.

“The Crown” creator Peter Morgan told TVLine that Foy may not continue playing the lead role in Season 3. He said, “At the end of Season 2, we will have to start thinking about a new cast. Our stars will have reached the limits of how long they can play this.” Although they are thinking of recasting in Season 3, nothing is set in stone. “We haven’t had those conversations with Netflix yet,” he admitted.

To put things in perspective, the first two seasons of the Golden Globe-winning series cover the first two decades of Queen Elizabeth’s life. Season 1 covered the English monarch’s reign till 1955. Season 2 will showcase her life till 1964. Morgan revealed, “We’re filming the second season right now, and that will take us through to 1964.”

Season 2 will depict the Suez Crisis and the numerous changes that took place in the world in the 1960s.

The creator of “The Crown” also reacted to rumors that the Netflix show would be around for six or seven seasons. “It’s not funny,” Morgan told reporters, “It’s just painful. The danger of writing a story about someone with a long life is that the story goes on and on and on.”

At Foy’s acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, the actress thanked co-stars John Lithgow and Matt Smith. Lithgow, who played British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, was nominated in the best supporting actor category, but lost to Hugh Laurie.
