Netflix Confirms ‘The Crown’ Season-3 Premiere Date

Speculation was rife yesterday over the release date of the much-anticipated third season of "The Crown" due to a since-deleted article on EW which cited a release date of November 17th for the third season of "The Crown".

It will have been nearly two years since the last outing of the show on Netflix, with the royal drama completely recasting as the story moves on to later in Queen Elizabeth's reign.

According to creator Peter Morgan, season three of The Crown will take place during 1964 and 1972 and is expected to cover major events in British history, like Princess Margaret's affair with Roddy Llewellyn, Margaret Thatcher's political rise, and the introduction of Camilla Parker Bowles.

Olivia Colman and Tobias Menzies will play Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip in the upcoming season of The Crown. This will be the first season with Academy Award victor Olivia Colman taking on the role of Queen Elizabeth II. The new season of the decorated historical drama will feature an all-new cast of actors taking over the lead roles.

A fourth season of the series is also in production, but Netflix did not say when that would premiere. Jason Watkins will play former Prime Minister Harold Wilson, and Princess Anne will be portrayed by Erin Doherty.

Seasons 1 and 2 are now available for streaming on Netflix.
