We already knew in which month the third season of ‘ The crown ‘is released, the first starring Olivia Colman. Netflix has now made the official announcement of the exact release date.
According to the events that closed the second season, this third episode should cover Harold Wilson’s years as the British Prime Minister. It was during this time that some remarkable events took place, such as the moon landing of Apollo XI, the inauguration of Prince Charles and the Aberfan disaster, the collapse of a coal mine that killed 144 people. This season, the entire cast has been rebooted with an older cast to portray the Queen’s advanced and more recent history.
However, it seems that one of the highlights would come with Season 4, which explores the growth in popularity of Diana of Wales, better known as Lady Di.
According to Netflix, season 3 of The Crown will premiere on November 17 this year. Seasons 1 and 2 stretched from 1947 to 1964. So seasons 3 and 4 will portray modern history through the late 1970s. It is believed that the series would end talking about such topics as the premiership of Margaret Thatcher and the entry of Lady Diana. Obviously, the speculations could be wrong as no one knows what to show after the real life storyline is over. And there could be a possible season 5 or more.
The story has to travel through Queen Elizabeth’s wedding into modern times, so the cast should change again. Even though rearranging the already established show members leads to disaster (or that’s what TV show history told us). Since the story demands it, there is no choice. And the showrunners are pretty good at bringing in some of the most talented performers to portray the roles. And the upcoming cast is just as good as before.
Who will be in the new cast?
In the third season, along with Olivia Colman (Isabel II), Tobias Menzies (Philip of Edinburgh), Elena Bonham (Princess Margarita) and Marion Bailey (Isabel Bowes-Lyon) will feature Jason Watkins (Secretary of Labor Harold Wilson), Harry Treadaway (Roddy Llewellyn), Gillian Anderson (Margaret Thatcher), Andrew Lee Potts (Michael Collins), Felix Scott (Edwin Aldrin), Henry Pettigrew (Neil Amstrong) and Emma Corrin (Diana of Wales).
