While many production schedules have been delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Season 4 of The Crown reportedly wrapped in early March. With past seasons being released in the fall, many are hoping the show will be released at the end of 2020.
So, what will Season 4 entail?
As audiences know, The Crown follows Queen Elizabeth II from the 1940s to modern-day. In Season 4, viewers can expect to see the royal family members depicted in the ’80s and early-90s. Netflix made new casting announcements for the upcoming installment, including former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson) and Princess Diana (Emma Corin).
Therefore, we wouldn’t be surprised if Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding was reenacted, and even the births of Prince William and Harry.
Actress Olivia Colman (who plays Queen Elizabeth II) talked about the difference between filming Season 3 and 4. “It’s interesting because, Series 3, for me, was like doing a historical piece,” she said. “Now, it feels less like that and more, I remember that! I remember that voice! I remember that moment! It feels quite different.”
She added: “We had our read-through and to hear the voices of Margaret Thatcher and all of that, it’s quite fun.”
Though audiences are excited for the upcoming seasons to drop, fans may be wondering why the show is ending after Season 5.
