Netflix Aug. 12 announced it would begin streaming the third season of critically-acclaimed original series, “The Crown,” on Nov. 17 — five days after the launch of Disney’s branded subscription streaming service.
The newest edition of the Royal drama, which features Oscar winner Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II (replacing Claire Foy) and Tobias Menzies (“Outlander”) replacing Matt Smith as Prince Philip, is set in the 1960s.
The series, which won Golden Globe, Primetime Emmy and Screen Actors Guild awards, resumes as England wins the 1966 World Cup soccer competition, the arrival of The Beatles and cultural revolution of the late ’60s and early ’70s.
The series also stars Helen Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret and Ben Daniels as Lord Snowden.
