Buzz for Netflix’s Emmy-winning series The Crown has rightfully focused on Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, but that is in the final two seasons. There is still season four that comes first, with Olivia Colman rounding her stint as Queen Elizabeth before passing the throne to Imelda Staunton. And now a new teaser has revealed the final season with Colman in charge has been set for November 15th.
Season 4 concludes the middle block of a six-season arc, with Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth, having taken over for Claire Foy. Production has been marred by the outbreak of coronavirus, which halted shooting way back in March. Rather than try to assemble the cast together in the middle of a pandemic, series creator Peter Morgan just decided to wrap things up early.
Netflix’s official tweet also confirms Gillian Anderson in the role of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. And before we see Debicki as Diana, Emma Corrin will play her first in season 4.
