Watch the dramatic full trailer for the new season of ‘The Crown’

Netflix has revealed a new trailer for the upcoming fourth season of The Crown.

The award-winning period drama series about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom returns to our screens next month.

The 10 new episodes completed filming just in time before the TV and film industry shut down almost all productions due to the coronavirus pandemic this spring.

Olivia Colman (Broadchurch) and Tobias Menzies (Outlander) are reprising their roles as the Queen and Prince Philip, with Josh O’Connor (The Durrells) and Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech) returning as Prince Charles and Princess Margaret.

New additions to the cast of The Crown include The X-Files star Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher, and Grantchester actress Emma Corrin as a young Princess Diana.

Season 4 will be available to watch exclusively on Netflix worldwide from Sunday 15th November.

The official synopsis reads: “As the 1970s are drawing to a close, Queen Elizabeth and her family find themselves preoccupied with safeguarding the line of succession by securing an appropriate bride for Prince Charles, who is still unmarried at 30.

“While Charles’ romance with a young Lady Diana Spencer provides a much-needed fairytale to unite the British people, as the transformation from teenager to Princess of Wales takes place, it is anything but a fairytale for Diana.”

Netflix has already confirmed some of the new cast members for the fifth and sixth seasons of The Crown.

Imelda Staunton is playing the show’s third and final Queen Elizabeth II, alongside Lesley Manville as Princess MargaretJonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, and Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana.

It looks like Season 5 won’t arrive on Netflix until at least 2022, however.

The Crown is available to buy on DVD on Amazon.
