Done binge-watching season 2? Thinking how to while away waiting for the next season? Well, you’re just in luck then! For those of you wondering what the hell am I talking about, the said series is The Crown, the epic biopic of Queen Elizabeth II.
Season three is being filmed even as you read making the release to happen earlier than we initially thought. Here is everything we know about Peter Morgan third shot in The Crown series!
Though we know that the third season is expected to be released somewhere in 2019, we are not sure yet about what date exactly.
Initially, we had reasons to believe that the release would possibly be delayed. The fact that the cast has been a whole lot changed might be one of them. However, if we go by the previous two seasons release schedule, I would suggest to expect it in late November or early December this year. Most certainly premiering before this Christmas, it will sure make you binge the whole winter!
Unfortunately not yet! However, to reduce the sting of disappointment, the team has released a few first look stills:
What will happen?
With the first two seasons focusing on the early years of Queen Elizabeth II, the third (and fourth?) season will quite possibly revolve around the Queen starting from 1964 to much around 1976.
Although Morgan remains tight-lipped about the story details, if we believe in what the history tells us, we can come to a few conclusions.
The season will surely introduce Camilla Parker Bowles who will meet Prince Charles at a polo match in 1971. It will also focus on the breakdown of the marriage between Princess Margaret and Lord Snowman. This information happens to be leaked by Robert Lacey, the Crown’s historian.
As for the remaining plot threads, you just have to wait till it premiers.
What is the cast?
Olivia Colman, who won the Oscar for playing a Queen in The Favourite 2018, replaced Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth. It looks like Netflix might have just struck gold! Outlander star Tobias Menzies would be cast as Prince Philip. If Netflix hasn’t got lucky then, it sure did now!
Confirming the long-time rumors, Princess Margaret’s role will be filled out by a veteran actor, Helena Bonham. Prime Minister Harold Macmillan and Princess Anne will be played by Line of Duty actor Jason Watkins and Erin Doherty from Call the Midwife respectively.
The infamous Josh O’Connor from The Durrells who will play Prince Charles has hinted that his character will not be completely from what we see on Youtube and that the real character will take on more depth.
