Season 6 of The Crown was a long time coming, and the wait is finally over. Netflix shared a new teaser trailer for the show’s final season, revealing it would be divided into two parts, set to be released this November and December.

The new teaser reunites us with Queen Elizabeth, played by Imelda Staunton in the show’s final season. Glimpses of her younger selves, portrayed by Claire Foy and Olivia Colman, can also be seen while a powerful speech echoes in the background.

The Crown is a symbol of permanence. It’s something you are, not what you do. Some portion of our natural selves is always lost. We have all made sacrifices. It is not a choice. It is a duty. But what about the life I put aside? The woman I put aside,” she says in the trailer.

In addition to Staunton in the lead role, the ensemble cast of Season 6 will also include Jonathan Pryce, Lesley Manville, Elizabeth Debicki, Dominic West, Salim Daw, and Khalid Abdalla, along with newcomers Rufus Kampa, Fflyn Edwards, Ed McVey, Luther Ford, and Meg Bellamy.

The first four episodes of Season 6 will return to Netflix on November 16, while the remaining six are set to stream on December 14.
