Movies and shows to watch after The Crown season 4

The Crown season 4 was recently released on Netflix, and most likely, you have already binged the entire season and are left with a void in your life.

The fourth season of The Crown was everything it should be, and it left fans wanting more.

It will seem that we have to wait forever for the release of The Crown season 5, which probably won’t be until 2022.  Until then, what will you do with your spare time?

Below, we shared five movies and shows to watch after The Crown season 4.

1. The Queen

This film was released in 2006. It tells the story of the death of Princess Diana. The Queen stars Helen Mirren. The screenplay was written by The Crown creator, Peter Morgan.

Mirren plays Queen Elizabeth II, and Michael Sheen plays Prime Minister Tony Blair. Sheen has played Blair two other times in The Deal and The Special Relationship.  This storyline follows the reaction of The British Royal family upon the death of Princess Diana.

Diana had been divorced from Prince Charles (Alex Jennings) a year before her death and was no longer considered part of The Royal Family. That left the question of how they should respond to her death. The Queen wanted to keep it a private matter, but Blair was worried about how that would look to the public. He had dubbed Diana “The People’s Princess” for a reason, and the public loved her.

This movie takes a look into a behind the scenes look at the Queen’s response to Diana’s death.

2. Diana: In Her Own Words

Diana: In Her Own Words is a collection of audio footage recorded, in secret, by Princess Diana.

This documentary is compromised of archived footage and the recorded conversations. The story is told entirely in Diana’s voice. The audio recordings are known as “Morton Tapes” as Diana recorded them and sent them to journalist Andrew Morton.

Morton would use these recordings for his 1992 best-selling book, Diana: Her True  Story. 

3. The Royal House of Windsor

This docuseries focuses on the House of Windsor and consists of six episodes. The Royal House of Windsor gives fans of The Crown a great history lesson to go along with the popular series.

The series released in 2017, and at that time, it was touted that some of the information contained in this documentary had never before been made available on TV.

The House of Windsor has endured many ups and downs. This docuseries isn’t a lot of new information for residents of the UK, but for Americans, there is information they may have never known.

This series is voiced over by Gwilym Lee (Midsomer Murders, The Great and Bohemian Rhapsody), who has such a pleasant voice.

4. Outlander

Outlander is currently in its fifth season and has been renewed for a sixth season. Outlander is based on a novel series by Diana Gabaldon.

The series started when former WWII nurse Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) and her husband Frank (Tobias Menzies) visit Scotland in 1945. Suddenly Claire is transported to 1743 and encounters a Highland Warrior, Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan).

It is a beautifully done historical drama that is certainly worth the watch.

5. Reign

Reign follows the story of Mary, Queen of Scots. Reign is a fictional series that is a historical teen drama.

The series puts much emphasis on fashion and drama more than historical accuracy. Personally, I think of it as a teen historical soap opera, with more emphasis on drama than history.

It is an entertaining series with beautiful people, outrageous fashions with a smidge of history—definitely a good escape from reality.

Other honorable mentions would be Pride and Prejudice and The Tudors. 

We hope these suggestions will keep you entertained until we can see another season of The Crown.
