One of the most groundbreaking Netflix series of 2016 was The Crown, which told the story of the United Kingdom’s Queen Elizabeth II, the longest currently reigning monarch and head of state in the world (she became queen in 1952). The series was praised for offering an inside look into the life of the intensely-private queen, as well as for its lavish production. The series has already been called the most expensive series to produce.
For its third season, it has been confirmed that Princess Diana Spencer and Camilla Parker Bowles will be introduced. There’s no word who will be portraying the iconic women and their storyline won’t be featured prominently until the show’s fourth season.
The Crown‘s third season will be set from 1964 to 1976, and will cover Harold Wilson’s two terms as prime minister and Princess Margaret’s five-year relationship with baronet and gardening expert Roddy Llewellyn.
It will also be the first season with a new cast, where older actors will replace Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II, Matt Smith as Prince Philip, and Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret. Olivia Colman has been announced to replace Foy, while Paul Bettany and Helena Bonham Carter are in negotiations to portray Prince Philip and Princess Margaret respectively.
There’s no word when the third season of The Crown will air.
