The Netflix original series on the reign of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II will find a completely different cast after season 2 wraps up, Claire Foy, who plays the monarch, told Vulture recently.

“Well, after two seasons, that’s it. I’m gone. They’re getting rid of all of us,” Ms. Foy told the pop culture website, which asked if she was dreading the lengthy makeup sessions to apply prosthetics to help realistically portray her character as she ages. 

“I don’t how they’re planning on doing it, but they’re such an incredible bunch of directors and producers that it’s gonna be different and exciting. It’ll be original. I can’t wait to see where it goes,” she added.

On Monday, Ms. Foy and John Lithgow, who portrays Sir Winston Churchill, received Golden Globe nominations for actress and supporting actor respectively.

“I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to bring Peter Morgan’s Princess Elizabeth to life; she is a gift of a role and a challenge I am so grateful for — a young woman trying to navigate a path through an extraordinary situation,” Ms. Foy wrote in a statement, reported the Los Angeles Times.

The series itself will face off against HBO series “Game of Thrones,” and “Westworld,” NBC’s “This Is Us” and Netflix original “Stranger Things” in the drama series category.

The 75th Annual Golden Globes will be broadcast live on NBC starting at 8 p.m. EST on Jan. 8.
