The Crown season 4 release date on Netflix
It was just announced that The Crown season 4 release date is set for Nov. 15, 2020. This gives viewers plenty of time to binge-watch or re-watch the series ahead of this date.
Sadly, season 4 will be the last season for quite some time. Deadline reports that filming for the fifth season won’t take place until 2021, giving us a 2022 release date.
Netflix has announced that there will be a sixth season of the series, and that will be the final season.
The Crown season 4 cast
With all of the hype over the season five cast changes, it is hard to remember that we have a different cast for season four.
Season 4 will continue with Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth, Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip, and Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret. We will also see the return of Ben Daniels, Marion Bailey, Erin Doherty, and Josh O’Connor.
New additions for season 4 include Gillian Anderson as Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and the fascinating addition of Emma Corrin as the beloved Princess Diana.
As excited as fans are for the continuation of the royal story, the introduction of Princess Diana is what many viewers are waiting for. She touched people’s lives in a way that no other royal has.
The Crown season 4 synopsis
Season four will pick up where season three left off, bringing the start of the timeline to the end of the 1970s.
The official synopsis (reported by Collider) is as follows:
As the 1970s are drawing to a close, Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) and her family find themselves preoccupied with safeguarding the line of succession by securing an appropriate bride for Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor), who is still unmarried at 30. As the nation begins to feel the impact of divisive policies introduced by Britain’s first female Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson), tensions arise between her and the Queen which only grow worse as Thatcher leads the country into the Falklands War, generating conflict within the Commonwealth. While Charles’ romance with a young Lady Diana Spencer (Emma Corrin) provides a much-needed fairytale to unite the British people, behind closed doors, the Royal family is becoming increasingly divided.
Another exciting bit of news is that Claire Foy, who played the Queen in season 1 and 2, will be making a cameo in a season four flashback scene.
The Crown, season four trailer
Netflix has released the first trailer for season 4, and you can view it below.
It is an excellent opening to the trailer. We also get glimpses of Princess Diana and a great look at her in her famed wedding gown. As well as glimpses of Margaret Thatcher, the Prime Minister.
Even though November 15 is a ways off, it is exciting to know there is a release date for The Crown. We will continue to keep you updated on any information released regarding the remaining three seasons of the series.
