With Oscar-winner Olivia Colman taking on the role of the middle-aged monarch in the latest instalment, we're expecting big things when it kicks off on November 17th.
And as the two minute, 30 second trailer shows, times are changing as the queen faces a rapidly changing Britain and questions her role as queen - in particular what she's actually done to help her country during her time on the throne.
She says in the trailer: "This country was still great when I came to the throne. All that's happened on my watch is that the place has fallen apart."
She looks anything but pleased as she sees the country fall apart in the tumultuous sixties.
We see miners on strike, the country bankrupt and electricity rationed in the trailer that plays along to Bob Dylan's Times Are A-Changin' in the background.
And of course it's not just the country's woes she's dealing with. Because as ever, tension within the family is high too.
Her relationship with Prince Phillip looks set to get rockier, whilst still trying to manage a now older Charles and her sister Margaret.
We watch as Margaret tries to get involved with the Queen's affairs as well as Margaret's fights with her then husband Anthony Armstrong-Jones turning physical.
Season three has a few actor changes now that everyone is older, with Olivia Colman taking on Claire Foy's original role, Helena Bonham-Carter now playing Princess Margaret, Josh O'Connor playing Prince Charles and Tobias Menzies as Prince Phillip.
Olivia told the Radio Times about when she found out she was playing the Queen: "I got a phone call from my agent when I was in a car [telling her that she had been asked to meet with director Peter Morgan]."
"I think I had fairly recently finished watching the first series, which I think I had done in about three nights - and so I was very excited.
"My agent was trying to be subtle, not knowing who was in the car with me and she went, 'It's something about a tiara', and I went, 'Oh, it's The Crown!'"
The Crown Season Three lands on Netflix on November 17th
