For fans of the Netflix Original series The Crown, the show’s third season will air this year at an undisclosed time. The first two seasons of the show chronicled the queen’s first days as her highness up until around the mid-60’s. Season three will pick up a bit after with actress Olivia Colman filling the shoes of Claire Foy as an older Queen Elizabeth. Phillip will no loner be played by Matt Smith, but by Game Of Thrones actor Tobias Menzies. Lastly, Helena Bonham Carter will play Princess Margaret.
The story will take our characterS further into the 70’s and beyond. Season three and four were filmed in succession, continuing the trend set by seasons one and two. Presumably, this new cast will get two seasons and the show will skip on to the 90’s and early 2000’s with an even older cast.
Are you excited for the return of The Crown? Who would you cast the next Queen Elizabeth for season five?
