The first three seasons of Netflix’s critically acclaimed historical drama The Crown have kept viewers away from its television shows, which last longer at the end of each season. Fortunately, Netflix has wrapped us up so far, with Season 4 (hopefully) not too far off in the future.
The fourth season of The Crown, which specifically follows the life of the British royal family, and Queen Elizabeth II, began filming in August 2019, before the third season was also dropped on the streaming service. According to Deadline, there is one week left to shoot in season four as of this writing, and at this stage, producers are determined to complete the project before fears about the coronavirus are realized. There is already a period of suspense and delay in the suspension industry, but The Crown has not stopped production. The publication reports that there is no major filming on the actual drama, only a requirement to “tie up loose ends.”
It seems like the latest season of The Crown shouldn’t have any negative effects of the epidemic. Here we know what the season is about so far.
What is the release date for season 4 of The Crown?
At this stage, Netflix has yet to announce an official release date for the fourth season, but they are not expected to subject fans to a two-year hiatus between the third and fourth seasons, as happened with the second and third seasons. . . Given that there wouldn’t be as many changes in the cast between these two seasons as it was from season 2 to season 3, there is likely little need for such a delay.
Despite the lack of information from Netflix on a possible release date
Sources have estimated that approximately one year after the launch of the third season, the fourth season will decline on the streaming service in November or December 2020. The Current production schedule seems favorable on that particular prediction, although you don’t want to have all your hopes and dreams. By comparison, The Witcher, the second season of the Netflix companion series, is currently being filmed (although that session has been delayed due to a coronavirus outbreak) and is expected to launch in 2021.
Who is included in season 4 of The Crown?
Season 4 of The Crown will have the same cast as season three, with Olivia Colman returning in the lead role as Queen Elizabeth II. Just to keep things interesting, Claire Foye, who played young Elizabeth in the first two seasons, will also be returning as queen, according to Collider. Tobias Menzies returns as Prince Philip, while Helena Bonham Carter reprises her role as Princess Margaret, Elizabeth’s troubled sister.
Elizabeth and Philip’s two oldest children, Prince Charles and Princess Anne will be portrayed by their three-season actors Josh O’Connor and Erin Doherty, respectively. Newcomers will play Princess Andrew and Edward, who have grown a bit since the last time we saw them in Season 3: Newcomer Tom Byron will be playing the role of Andrew and, Angus Imrie (Fleabag) will be playing the role of Edward, according to sources.
This season will also feature some highly anticipated new faces.
Princess Diana is making her first appearance in the series, starring actress Emma Corinne (Pennyworth). The introduction of Princess Di means that we will also see Princess William and Harry for the first time, although information on the cast of their parts has not yet been released.
Another important character will also join the cast, as Margaret Thatcher’s long reign as prime minister is about to begin. Gillian Anderson from the X-Files will have big shoes to fill as she plays the Iron Lady.
