There’s more Princess Diana content coming to Netflix soon.

Aside from Season 5 of “The Crown” hitting the platform next year, the streaming giant has new royal content to keep fans going. “Diana: The Musical” will be coming on Oct. 1 ahead of the show’s Broadway return.

A trailer for the musical about the teenage years of the late Princess of Wales dropped Thursday featuring the production’s cast, which includes Jeanna De Waal as Diana, Roe Hartrampf as Prince Charles, Erin Davie as Camilla Parker Bowles and Judy Kaye as Queen Elizabeth II.

The musical was filmed in 2020 and is set to return to the stage in November. The show originally opened in March 2020 at the start of the pandemic. Previews are scheduled to resume at the Longacre Theater on Nov. 2 and an opening night is scheduled for Nov. 17.

The story follows 19-year-old Diana Spencer and her first encounters with the royal family, as well as how she grapples with the legacy she leaves as one of the most famous women of the 20th century.

“The chance to share our show, first with Netflix’s global audience, and then welcoming a live audience back on Broadway, is something we’ve all been dreaming about for more than a year. We could not be more thrilled to finally share both the film and the Broadway musical with the world,” the show’s producers explained in a statement earlier this year.

“There is a huge groundswell of energy surrounding Broadway’s reopening news and we are looking forward to having many things to celebrate with our Broadway colleagues this fall,” they continued. “We are also eager to move forward with our cast and company with a firm commitment to the list of actionable items we have created together to help make both Diana and our industry a more inclusive, equitable and safe space in which to work.”

2021 seems to be the year of memorializing Diana as another project about the royal is set to hit the big screen. Kristen Stewart is playing Di in a biopic, set to be released on Nov. 9. Entitled, “Spencer,” the drama will chronicle Diana during the course of a three-day period in 1991 during the Christmas season as she tries to end her marriage to Prince Charles.
