Known for her roles in Widows and Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, the 29-year-old actress will succeed Emma Corrin, who will introduce Lady Diana Spencer, Princess of Wales, in the fourth season of the highly regarded drama.
In a statement shared on The Crown's official Twitter account, Debicki said, “Princess Diana's spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many. It is my true privilege and honor to be joining this masterful series, which has had me absolutely hooked from episode one.”
Per the outlet, the show’s final seasons will cover "the break-up of Princess Diana and Prince Charles' marriage and her death in 1997, which plunged the Royal Family into crisis."
The exciting news comes just weeks after series creator Peter Morgan revealed that instead of concluding the series with season five, The Crown will now run for a total of six seasons and will take place in the ’90s and early ’00s.
“As we started to discuss the storylines for series five, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons,” he said, according to Deadline. “To be clear, series six will not bring us any closer to present-day—it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”
Looks like we are going to have tons of Princess Di content to stream in the near future.
