My parents watch VERY little television, so when my mother starts badgering me about watching a show, it gets my attention.
“The Crown” is the story of the current, reigning monarch of England, Queen Elizabeth. The first two seasons covered her early years, and it’s been two years since Netflix aired Season Two.
That’s because it’s about to take a big time jump.
Seasons 3 and 4 will cover her life from 1964-1977 and will have an entirely new cast. Oscar winner Olivia Colman stars as Queen Elizabeth II, taking over the role from Claire Foy. Tobias Menzies (Outlander), Ben Daniels (The Exorcist) and Helena Bonham Carter will play Prince Philip, Lord Snowdon and Princess Margaret, respectively. Parker Bowles is played by Call the Midwife‘s Emerald Fennell and Prince Charles by Josh O’Connor. Marion Bailey (Allied) plays the Queen Mother.
Netflix returns with “The Crown” on November 17.
