First trailer for The Crown season 3
Academy-Award winner Olivia Colman stars as Queen Elizabeth II in the turbulent period between 1964 and 1977.
Netflix has released the first full-length trailer for the upcoming third season of The Crown.
Covering the years between 1964 and 1977, these ten new episodes will see Academy-Award winner Olivia Colman taking over from Claire Foy in the role of Queen Elizabeth II.
The two minute-clip opens with the monarch on the day of her Silver Jubilee and teases the arrival of a much darker, more turbulent period of unrest for both the general British public and the royal family.
Set to Bob Dylan’s The Times They Are A Changin’, it shows historical events like the beginning of the famous miners strike led by Arthur Scargill (David Wilmot), the tragic Aberfan disaster and the ascension of Labour MP Harold Wilson to Prime Minister, unfolding.
The Queen too is shown to be in a state of uncertainty.
"In the time that I've been on the throne, what have I actually achieved?” she wonders aloud in once scene. “All that’s happened on my watch is the place has fallen apart.”
Prince Charles (Josh O’ Connor) is seen struggling to find his rightful place and starting to doubt the intentions of his family while beginning a relationship with Camilla Shand (Emerald Fennell), later Parker-Bowles.
The breakdown of Princess Magaret's (Helena Bonham Carter) rocky marriage to Lord Snowden (Ben Daniels) will serve as a major plotline, with him seen violently pinning her against a wall.
The cast has been completely overhauled for this highly-anticipated new season with Tobias Menzias also set to replace Doctor Who’s Matt Smith as Prince Philip.
Peter Morgan once again wrote all ten episodes and will continue to serve as showrunner. All ten episodes of this third season will arrive simultaneously on 17th November.
You can stream seasons one and two of The Crown on Netflix now.
