The trailer of The Crown Season 3 was dropped by the makers on Monday after much wait by the fans. In its third season, the Netflix drama will have a brand new cast, as the show moves on in terms of the age of its characters. While the previous two seasons covered the years 1947-1963, the next two will chart the course until late 1972. It’ll cover the rapid change in Britain’s politics - from the cold war to the space age.
Apart from showing the political turmoil in the country and the new Prime Minister Harold Wilson, the trailer shows rising bitterness between Queen Elizabeth and sister Princess Margaret. As a grown-up Elizabeth looks back on her time on the throne she wonders what she's ‘actually achieved,’ later musing, “This country was still great when I came to the throne. All that's happened on my watch is the place has fallen apart.”
Watch the trailer here:
Olivia Colman maintains the perfect poise and the stiff upper lip as the Queen. She’ll be joined in the new season by Tobias Menzies, Helena Bonham Carter and Josh O’Connor. While the third season’s teaser released, the cast for the fourth has already been finalised.
The show received brilliant reviews, both by critics and the audience, as it chronicled the life of the Queen from her childhood to her taking the throne.
The new season will tell how the royalty adapts to these changes, just like the Queen says in the teaser, “A great many changes. Nothing one can do about it, one just has to get on with it,”
