Season 3 of ‘The Crown’ is coming in November, star says

By Zach Harper

If you're like us, you can't wait for Season 3 of The Crown. It's been a while since we got a chance to watch our favourite royals-related drama unfold on Netflix, and now we know when the series will return: sometime in November.

Tobias Menzies, who takes over from Matt Smith as Prince Philip in Season 3, stopped by Jo Good’s BBC Radio London show, and she asked him about when we can expect new episodes.

“We shot season three and that starts in November,” he said.

While there isn’t much more information right now, viewers are surely biting their nails in anticipation of the show’s return. Netflix is sure to announce a definite release date soon, given that Tobias has dropped the month when it's happening.

More expected highlights from Season 3 include Olivia Colman taking over from Claire Foy as Her Majesty, while legendary Helena Bonham Carter takes the mantle of Princess Margaret from Vanessa Kirby.

The third season picks up in 1964, just after the birth of Prince Edward and the beginning of Harold Wilson’s first term as UK prime minister. It covers the period until 1976, when Harold’s time as head of government ended.

The fourth season, which was shot at the same time as the third, will introduce Emma Corrin as Princess Diana and will also feature Emerald Fennell as Camilla. Josh O’Connor will play Prince Charles, Marion Bailey will take over from Victoria Hamilton as the Queen Mum, and Gillian Anderson will play UK prime minister Margaret Thatcher. Viewers will not have to wait as long between Seasons 3 and 4 as they have between Seasons 2 and 3.
