Netflix’s The Crown Season 4 wraps production early
Earlier this week, it was reported that filming on the fourth season of The Crown would continue to push through despite most TV production already temporarily shutting down due to the ongoing threats of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, EW is reporting that Netflix’s Olivia Colman-led award-winning historical drama has been able to successfully wrap production a few days earlier than it was scheduled.
The production company and Netflix chose to keep production rolling for one more week on the fourth season of the series because they needed to tie up some loose threads before heading into full post-production.
The third season of The Crown saw the entire cast aging up, including Tobias Menzies taking 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. Gillian Anderson will play Margaret Thatcher with Emerald Fennell portraying Camilla Parker Bowles.
Season three of The Crown took place during 1964 and 1972 and is covering 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.
The 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).
Seasons 1-3 of The Crown are already available for streaming on Netflix.
