It has been more than 20 months since The Crown Season 2 fell on Netflix (about 613 days for those of us who have marked the days off on the calendar).

I'm looking forward to the third season. Here is everything we know about the next season of The Crown .
. 1 The third season of The Crown will be premiered on November 17, 2019.
After nearly two years of waiting, Netflix surprised everyone with a very dramatic teaser for The Crown on Monday, August 12, the third season in which we premiered on November 17, and a quick look got to our new queen.
. 2 Olivia Colman will play Queen Elizabeth II.
From the beginning, creator Peter Morgan made it clear that each season of The Crown would span approximately a decade of history and that the cast for the season would change to three and back in the fifth season ( to illustrate the characters 20 and 40 years later). In October 2017, it was announced that Olivia Colman – who won an Oscar for Best Actress – for her work in
earlier this year – would take on the role of Queen Elizabeth II to the American public best known for her roles in Broadchurch (19459003) and The Night Manager (19459004) (who in 2017 earned her a Golden Globe) royal family.

I've been with him on The History Boys andHe is a fantastic actor and I am very curious to see what he is doing with Prince Philip. "
4. Menzies had little interest in the royal family before he was cast in the crown .
Menzies was inspired by his casting in The Crown and said "I am delighted to join the new cast of The Crown and re-collaborate with Olivia Colman I'm looking forward to becoming her "Lean man of life and limbs." As late as February 2019, Menzies admitted he was less familiar with the history of the royal family. "Before my participation, I did not have much interest in the Royals," Menzies told RadioTimes.com. "I was not someone who read about or engaged with them, but I was very fascinated by [Prince Philip’s] life, he's a pretty interesting guy, he's a complex person with complex stories, I have a lot of respect for him. "
. 5 Menzies accidentally slipped the release date of season three a few weeks before Netflix.
We do not say that Netflix did not always plan to release the third season's release date in August, but we know it's too late. When Menzies appeared on Jo Good's BBC radio show in July, he left an important detail about the fall new season. While talking about his role in The Crown Menzies commented, "We shot the third season and it starts in November." Oops!
. 6 Paul Bettany came very close to the role of Menzies.
If you remember hearing rumors that Paul Bettany would play the Duke of Edinburgh, no, you do not imagine things. For a while, it seemed that the London-born actor was an imposition on the role, but it turned out that the plan was not in Bettany's favor. When asked after rumors that he was about to sign a deal for Philip, Bettany said, "We talked about it, we could not really settle for appointments. [That] is all that happened."

As The Crown progresses, time will also advance, though fans feared it would take a few more years because of the leaps in time between seasons Until Princess Diana is introduced, Morgan told People that Princess Diana would make her debut at the end of the season, and that she will be heavily represented in the two following seasons. "Casting director Nina However, Gold later disproved this notion. "
" Diana is not in this season, "Gold told Vanity Fair ." When we come to her, that will be interesting. "Charles and Diana did not meet until 1977, when the prince began meeting Diana's older sister Sarah. After Variety the third season will cover only the years 1964 to 1976.
. 9 Camilla Parker Bowles is introduced.
Since it is difficult to fully describe the relationship between Prince Charles and Princess Diana without including Camilla Parker Bowles as part of the story, the current Duchess of Cornwall will have her first appearance in Season 3 and 4, played by Call the Midwife Star Emerald Fennell
10. The actress, who plays Camilla, played a key role behind the scenes in the second season of Killing Eve .
