Meet your Iron Lady, Netflix fans.

The cast of The Crown has a new prime minister in town, and we finally know who’s going to play her. Gillian Anderson has reportedly signed on to Netflix’s royal-family drama as Margaret Thatcher (although negotiations aren’t finalized yet) according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Should the deal close, the Sex Education actress would most likely star in both seasons three and four of the show as head of U.K. parliament. Thatcher served as P.M. from 1979 to 1990, after James Callaghan. Prime Minister Harold Wilson preceded Callaghan and will be played by Jason Watkins in season three of The Crown.

The Favourites Olivia Colman is taking over Claire Foys role as Queen Elizabeth II for the Netflix show’s junior season, while Tobias Menzies of Outlander will be the new Prince Philip.

Helena Bonham Carter is set to play Princess Margaret, while her hunky photographer husband, Anthony Armstrong-Jones, will be portrayed by Ben Daniels. Erin Doherty will star as Princess Anne.

Fingers crossed we see that immaculately coiffed ginger ’do soon.
