The internet streaming site announced the news today that Dexter actor Michael C. Hall will be taking on the role of the iconic Command-in-Chief from the 1960s.
Meanwhile, his first lady Jackie Kennedy will be played by South African actress Jodi Balfour.
Claire Foy and Matt Smith will be reprising their roles as Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip respectively for the second outing of the critically-acclaimed series.
President Kennedy and his wife will be seen in an episode that will revolve around the “tricky” and “sensitive” state visit of 1961, according to the Daily Mail.
The visit was tense because Jackie wanted her sister and divorcee Princess Lee Radziwell to attend the state visit, even though divorces were heavily frowned upon.
Jackie’s sister was eventually allowed to attend despite the Queen reportedly being absolutely furious at the time but eventually relenting.

The instalment of The Crown will also analyse the relationship between the Queen and Jackie Kennedy, showing the monarch getting irritated with the American.
However, the frosty dynamic between the two women is said to thaw through the series when Jackie confesses to the royal that she finds being in the public eye “exhausting”.
The Queen will reply to her: “One gets crafty after a while and learns how to save oneself.”
