First look photos from The Crown Season 3 have been released, featuring Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II, Tobias Menzies, Helena Bonham Carter, and Ben Daniels. You can check out the photos below (via EW).
The third season of The Crown will see the entire cast aging up. Along with Olivia Coleman, Helena Bonham Carter, and Ben Daniels, Menzies will take over for Matt Smith who played Prince Philip during the first two seasons. Prince Charles and Princess Anne will also grow older with Josh O’Connor and Erin Doherty filling in those roles.
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. Both seasons 3 and 4 of the series will be shot back-to-back, with season 3 being released in 2019.
The Crown, a Netflix original series, tells the inside story of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, as the fragile social order established after the Second World War breaks apart. Based on the award-winning play, “The Audience,” the series reunites creator/writer Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon) with director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) and producer Andy Harries (The Queen).
