The Crown season three has been much-anticipated ever since Claire Foy and Matt Smith hung up their hats back in 2017. The new series launches today (Sunday, November 17) on the streaming platform, starring an all-new cast including Olivia Colman and Helena Bonham Carter.
Fans of hit royal drama The Crown will finally be able to see the new series when it is released on Netflix today.
All episodes of season three will be dropped on the streaming platform at 8am GMT this morning.
The series will reunite viewers with the Royal Family as it charts a number of major events through the 1960s and 1970s.
Starring Colman as Queen Elizabeth II, the latest outing will also introduce grown-up versions of Prince Charles (played by Josh O’Connor) and Princess Anne (Erin Doherty).
Another episode will focus on the Aberfan disaster, which happened in a Welsh mining village in 1966.
Speaking to Radio Times, Colman revealed these were some of the hardest scenes for her to film.
She said: “I can’t hide anything. So that was the hardest thing ever, to play someone much stronger emotionally than me.
“When we filmed the scenes with the tributes and the flowers and the toys, the director would say, ‘Pretend you’re just judging a flower competition.’
“Because if I thought about what it actually was, I couldn’t cope. I can’t do repression.”
In order to be able to watch the series, viewers will need to have a subscription to the Netflix.
