A little over a month out from the series’ third season premiere Netflix has finally released a full trailer for the much-anticipated new season of The Crown. Season three finds Oscar winner Olivia Colman (The Favourite) taking over the lead role played by Claire Foy in seasons one and two.
In addition to Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II, the cast includes Golden Globe nominee Tobias Menzies (Outlander) as Prince Phillip and two-time Academy Award nominee and Emmy winner Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech, The Wings of the Dove) as Princess Margaret. Ben Daniels (The Exorcist) stars as Lord Snowdon, Josh O’Connor (The Durrells) is Prince Charles, Erin Doherty (Les Misérables) plays Princess Anne, Marion Bailey (Britannia) is The Queen Mother, Charles Dance is Lord Mountbatten, and Jason Watkins (Hold the Sunset) is Prime Minister Harold Wilson.
Season three of the critically acclaimed biographical drama was written by two-time Academy Award nominee Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen).
Season two of the award-winning series starred Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II, Matt Smith as Prince Phillip, John Lithgow as Sir Winston Churchill, Victoria Hamilton as the Queen Mother, Jared Harris as King George VI, Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret, and Dame Eileen Atkins as Queen Mary.
Netflix has set a November 17, 2019 premiere date for the third season of the critically acclaimed series.
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.
The third season 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.
