The Crown is one of the best shows of the past decades. It is about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. The show helps us see things through the eyes of the monarchs. It is created and written by Peter Morgan. The show is a Netflix Original.
It has won multiples awards and nominations throughout its three-season run, including 3 Golden Globes and 8 Primetime Emmy Awards.
Here everything you need to know about the show’s fourth season and future.
The Crown Season 4 Release Date
The show has a clear idea of its structure. There will only be five seasons in a total of the show. The showrunner’s comment on the show:
“At the outset, I had imagined The Crown running for six seasons, but now that we have begun work on the stories for season five, it has become clear to me that this is the perfect time and place to stop,” Peter said in an interview.
The filming of the show had to finish prematurely amid the coronavirus pandemic. It has managed to wrap up the shoot a few days earlier than initially planned.
So, we expect the show to drop in the fall of this year, most likely in 2021.
Olivia Colman will return in her role as Queen Elizabeth II. Tobias Menzies will be reprising the role of Prince Philip, while Helena Bonham Carter will be seen again as Elizabeth’s troubled sister Princess Margaret.
Since the show has covered different phases of Queen’s life in chronological order, the fourth season will introduce a new phase in her life. The third season left us in 1977 and it is speculated that the latest season will end in 1990. It will introduce Margaret Thatcher and Lady Prince Diana Spencer, which has been a controversial time in England’s history.
