Netflix is taking us behind the scenes of The Crown Season 3 today with a new featurette, in which Olivia Colman (Queen Elizabeth II), Helena Bonham Carter (Princess Margaret), Tobias Menzies (Prince Philip), Josh O’Connor (Prince Charles), Erin Doherty (Princess Anne), Peter Morgan (Writer/Creator) and Suzanne Mackie (Executive Producer) discuss the new season.
The third season (buy the first two seasons) of The Crown sees a new guard sweep into Downing Street, as Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) and her family struggle to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing Britain. From cold-war paranoia, through to the jet-set and the space age – the exuberance of the 1960s and the long hangover of the 1970s – Elizabeth and the Royals must adapt to a new, more liberated, but also more turbulent world. The third season will launch on the streaming service on Sunday, November 17, 2019.
Written by Peter Morgan, The Crown also stars Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Tobias Menzies as The Duke of Edinburgh, Josh O’Connor as Prince Charles, Erin Doherty as Princess Anne, Ben Daniels as Lord Snowdon, Jason Watkins as Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Charles Dance as Lord Mountbatten.
Claire Foy played Queen Elizabeth II in the first two seasons, along with Matt Smith as Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret.
The Crown tells the inside story of two of the most famous addresses in the world — Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street – and the intrigues, love lives and machinations behind the great events that shaped the second half of the 20th century. Two houses, two courts, one Crown.
Casting has also already been taking place for the fourth season, with Gillian Anderson playing former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Emma Corrin taking on the role of Lady Diana Spencer.
