Season three of Netflix’s critically acclaimed drama The Crown hasn’t even dropped yet, but fans are already getting a taste of what’s to come in season four.
The historical drama follows the life of Queen Elizabeth II, starting from her early adult years to the modern day. Season one saw a then Princess Elizabeth rise to power, marry her husband, Prince Philip, and chronicled her hand in the political turmoil that engulfed England in the mid-1950s. Season two continued by following the queen’s personal struggles and triumphs, including the birth of Prince Edward.
We don’t know much about season three of The Crown, which means season-four details are even more sparse. That being said, there is a bit of tea. Check it out:
Season four of The Crown will begin shooting later this year. Season three of the hit show has no release date just yet, though it’s expected to drop sometime in 2019. According to E! News, the show will almost immediately start filming season four and is expected to pick up production by the end of 2019.
Season four of The Crown will include Princess Diana. On Tuesday Netflix announced it finally cast its Princess Diana. Taking on the role will be newcomer Emma Corrin.
“Emma is a brilliant talent who immediately captivated us when she came in for the part of Diana Spencer,” the Crown creator Peter Morgan told The Hollywood Reporter.. As well as having the innocence and beauty of a young Diana, she also has, in abundance, the range and complexity to portray an extraordinary woman who went from anonymous teenager to becoming the most iconic woman of her generation.”
“Beyond excited and honored to be joining The Crown for its fourth season,” Corrin said in a statement. “I have been glued to the show since the first episode, and to think I’m now joining this incredibly talented acting family is just surreal. Princess Diana was an icon, and her effect on the world remains profound and inspiring. To be given the chance to explore her through Peter Morgan’s writing is the most exceptional opportunity, and I will strive to do her justice!”
Season four of The Crown will not be its last. Netflix has serious love for this show, and it shows. According to The Hollywood Reporter, content chief Ted Sarandos said the series is set to run for six seasons, covering all of the queen’s life.
