The Crown Season 3 Has Finally Set A Release Date And There Are Multiple Reasons To Be Beyond Excited

The hit Netflix original series, The Crown has finally set a release date for its third season and we have gathered everything you

It seems that 'The Crown' is finally heading towards Netflix with its third season and the royal drama is all set to premiere on November 17 this year. This news comes nearly after two years since the second season of the British drama, which launched on December 8, 2017. The third season of the royal series is set during the time period of 1964 and will cover events such as the rise of the Beatles and England winning the soccer World Cup in 1966. Characters such as Camilla Parker Bowles are expected to emerge in the next season.


The third season is written by Peter Morgan and it will have a new cast from the previous two seasons. Oscar-winner Octavia Colman stars as Queen Elizabeth II, taking over the role from Claire Foy. Along with her, Tobias Menzies, Ben Daniels, and Helena Bonham Carter will play Prince Philip, Lord Snowdon, and Princess Margaret, respectively. The character of Camila Parker Bowles will be played by Call the Midwife‘s Emerald Fennell and Prince Charles by Josh O’Connor. Marion Bailey will be playing Queen Mother. 


The trailer of the series is not available yet but the first look at Oscar-winner Olivia Colman as the Queen had been released. Netflix followed this up with images of Helena Bonham Carter, as Princess Margaret and Ben Daniels as Lord Snowden. A first look at Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip was released on 28th August. And, most importantly, Netflix released a first-look of Queen Elizabeth II and her beloved corgis in August.


Colman, regarding her role said, "I got a phone call from my agent when I was in a car [telling her that she had been asked to meet with director Peter Morgan]. I think I had fairly recently finished watching the first series, which I think I had done in about three nights – and so I was very excited. My agent was trying to be subtle, not knowing who was in the car with me and she went, ‘It’s something about a tiara’, and I went, ‘Oh, it’s The Crown!'” 


In terms of Princess Diana appearing in the show, even though Emma Corrin has been cast in the Netflix series, she won’t make her first on-screen appearance until season four. While Colman will be familiar to British drama fans, it’s striking just how similar she appears to Queen Elizabeth II in her first official photo in costume.
