Olivia Colman succeeds Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II. In the third season of Netflix's # Royal Biopic The Crown. After much speculation was announced in October that the favorite and Broadchurch star Colman would take over the role of the Queen.

After the victory of Foy's best Emmy actress for her role in the Netflix drama, expectations for the performance of Oscar winner Colman are high.

After a long search Tobias Menzies joined in March 2018 as Prince Philip in the ranks. Claire Foy and Matt Smith are now gone, and the drama begins a new era, both with a new cast and time in this epic story of the most famous family in the world.

Find out everything we know about the Crown series three below. We will update this page with the latest news and views as they arrive.

When will the third season of The Crown be released on Netflix?

It's official: Colman will accept her bow as the new queen Sunday, November 17, 2019,

While the first season was released in November 2016 and the second season in December 2017 – just in time for Christmas – Netflix always expected a longer break between the second and third season due to the introduction of the brand new cast.

Filming began in July 2018 and Olivia Colman confirmed at the Oscars that filming was completed in February 2019 – although she was still recruiting.

"We just finished the third season a week ago, and when I go back, I'll have to do a few new shots," she said in an interview after her Oscar victory on February 24, 2019. "We'll start the fourth season again in the August. "

This is good news for the future of the series as we do not have to wait so long for the fourth season release. Then the cast is changed again. It's a mystery who will take the lead roles of the Queen and Prince Philip as the epic series enters a much more modern history.

What will happen?

The third and fourth series will cover the years 1964-76, with series one and two covering the early reigns of Queen Elizabeth II of 1947-63.

Show runner Peter Morgan confirmed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that the new season will focus less on the relationship between Prince Phillip and QEII – which he described after the years of uproar as shown in Season 2, rather than the collapse of Princess' marriage Margaret and Lord Snowdon.

He added that Charles and Camilla will also be a central focus of the season.

"People always assume that Charles Diana cheated on Camilla," he says. "It's the wrong way around, he was deeply in love with Camilla and had to marry Diana."

In addition, the monarch in the series will maintain her most enduring relationship with a prime minister in Harold Wilson, who served as head of government for the British government during this period.

New star Tobias Menzies announced to RadioTimes.com that the series will feature an episode about the moon landing of Apollo 11 and how Prince Philip responded to the momentous event in the story.

"We just shot a really interesting episode that was all linked to the moon landings of & # 39; 69," he revealed.

"[Showrunner] Peter [Morgan] has argued that Philip is very much concerned with the heroism of these men compared to what he may not have done with his own life. "

The third series was also to cover the decolonization of Africa and the Caribbean, the birth of Prince Edward (March 1964), and the public perception of Prince Charles following his coronation to the Prince of Wales in 1969.

Josh O'Connor, who plays the young prince, says the new series features Charles while he is still a student.

"We start with Charles at the University of Cambridge, where we bring him into the series," he told RadioTimes.com. "Here we scale an important part of his life, and I feel very honored and excited to tell the story. And tell a whole other side of the story that we may not have seen or known yet. "

Is there a trailer?

Unfortunately not. Netflix, however, has a first look at the Oscar winner Olivia Colman as a queen in the image below thrown.

Olivia Colman in Netflix's The Crown

Who is in the cast?

The Queen Olivia Colman was announced as the first new cast member – she will replace Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II.

Netflix seems to have won gold in the casting, especially after Colman won the Oscar for playing another queen in Film The Favorite in 2018.

She told RadioTimes.com from the moment she knew she was in for the role in the race.

"My agent called me when I was in a car [telling her that she had been asked to meet with director Peter Morgan]"I said I had just finished watching the first series recently, which I had done in about three nights – and so I was very excited, my agent was trying to be subtle, not knowing who to do with I sat in the car and she said, "It's about a tiara," and I said, "Oh, it's the crown!"

The full interview can be found below.

But she also warned people that her role as Queen Elizabeth would be very different from her Oscar-winning role as Queen Anne in The Favorite.

"You can not compare them, both have the word" queen "in the title, but that's it, that's where it ends," she said in a post-Oscar interview with ABC.

"Queen Elizabeth is much harder to play, and there are almost no rules for Queen Anne: no one can say, 'She does not sound like that.'

Prince Philip End of March 2018 it was announced that the Outlander star Tobias Menzies after much speculation would take over the role of Prince Philip (originally was rumored that Paul Bettany should replace Matt Smith).

Menzies told RadioTimes.com how he was preparing to play the Duke of Edinburgh: "I just listened to him a lot. It's partly a technical thing: you want to sound and look like him, but you also want to be like him. I got a little crazy when I just listened to him and listened to him. "

Princess Margaret Experienced actress Helena Bonham Carter will take on the role of Princess Margaret in season three, after Netflix has confirmed the long-rumored cast.

In January 2018, Vanessa Kirby, the actress who played Margaret in the first two series, shared an Instagram picture with Bonham Carter and the headline "Excellent." She also tagged The Crown's official Instagram account.

Meanwhile, duty-line star Jason Watkins will play Prime Minister Harold Wilson.

Call the Midwife actress Erin Doherty has taken on the role of Princess Anne.

Prince Charles Durrells star Josh O'Connor was confirmed as the actor who will play Prince Charles in a key period in the history of the Prince of Wales. O'Connor joked that he had "the ears for the part".

Aside from the moments, O'Connor has stated that he does not want to completely imitate Prince Charles and states that his role in The Crown is different from that of the real heir to the throne.

"What [writer] Peter Morgan not only presents us with what we can see on YouTube. He walks behind the locked doors, "he said at the BFI and Radio Times Television Festival.

"It's little things that people can register and identify as Prince Charles, but go beyond and create a complete character that's not just Prince Charles and something else."

The queen mother is played in the meantime by Marion Bailey.

In October 2018, Netflix confirmed that Call the Midwife is the star Emerald Fennell would play the key role of Camilla Shand (now known as Camilla Parker-Bowles or the Duchess of Cornwall) – the future wife of Prince Charles.

"I'm absolutely overjoyed and terrified to join so many talented people at The Crown," Fennell said cheekily, adding, "I absolutely love Camilla and I'm very grateful that my teenage years have prepared me well for playing a chain-smoking Serial snogger with a pudding cup haircut. "

X-Files and sex education star Gillian Anderson will play in the meantime Margaret Thatcher.

Emma Corrin I will play Lady Diana Spencer (The future Princess of Wales) in The Crown.

"I was thrilled with the show and believing that I'm coming to this incredibly talented actor family is surreal," Corrin said.

"Princess Diana was an icon and her impact on the world remains profound and inspiring. Exploring them through Peter Morgan's writing is the most extraordinary opportunity, and I will strive to do it justice! ", Added her.

Their new co-star O'Connor later praised the casting and told RadioTimes.com: "I met her and I think she's young, but she's absolutely on the point, she's an incredible talent."

Game of Thrones star Charles Dance will also be seen in The Crown, though its role is still unconfirmed. It is rumored that he will play the favorite uncle of Prince Charles, Lord Louis Mountbatten.

Of course, there are many more empty roles left: We will update this page with the announcements as they come in.

Actor Alex Jennings, who played the Duke of Windsor in series one and two, has already admitted that he will find it difficult to see his replacement in the role.

"I would like to have been involved in my story at The Crown to make the bow all the way to the end of the Duke of Windsor," he told RadioTimes.com.

Will Princess Diana be seen in the third season of The Crown?

While playing in the Netflix series, Emma Corrin will not be on screen until the fourth season. However, since the shooting begins in the fourth season, her casting was confirmed in April 2019.

While Colman will be familiar to the British Dramafans, it is remarkable how similar she appears to Queen Elizabeth II on her first official photo in costume.

With the release of the first line-up of The Crown's third season, we finally have the opportunity to see this new collection of actors transformed into their royal counterparts.
