Claire Foy won an Emmy for playing Queen Elizabeth in Netflix's The Crown, but when the story required an older Elizabeth, the role was recast with Olivia Colman for season 3. Never fear, Foy fans: recent images from the set reveal that Foy will be returning to The Crown for the upcoming season 4 after all.

Unfortunately, The Daily Mail's report suggests Foy's scene will be a flashback — so don't get too excited for a Back to the Future-esque time travel subplot where the older Elizabeth has to convince her younger self to keep the Royal Family together.
