Netflix has released the first trailer for the new season of The Crown.
The award-winning period drama series about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom is returning to our screens in November.
Olivia Colman (Broadchurch) and Tobias Menzies (Outlander) are reprising their roles as the Queen and Prince Philip in this autumn’s ten new episodes of The Crown.
Josh O’Connor (The Durrells) and Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech) are also back, playing Prince Charles and Princess Margaret respectively.
The Crown fans have their first glimpse at Charles and Diana’s wedding day in this new 30-second teaser:
Season 4 will be available to watch exclusively on Netflix worldwide from Sunday 15th November.
This official synopsis reads: “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.”
Netflix recently revealed some of the new cast members for the fifth and sixth seasons of The Crown.
Imelda Staunton will be playing the show’s third and final Queen Elizabeth II, alongside Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, and Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana.
Season 5 won’t premiere on Netflix until at least 2022, however.
The Crown is available to buy on DVD on Amazon.
