Season four of the hit Netflix series “The Crown” will be released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc Nov. 2 by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
The historical drama series about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II was produced by Left Bank Pictures and Sony Pictures Television for Netflix. Season 4 began airing on Netflix in November 2020.
The series was nominated for 24 2021 Emmy Awards and picked up four 2021 Golden Globe wins, including Best Drama Series.
Season four covers the late 1970s and 1980s, as the Queen and her family find themselves preoccupied with safeguarding the line of succession by securing an appropriate bride for Prince Charles, who is still unmarried at 30. As the nation begins to feel the impact of divisive policies introduced by Britain’s first female Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, tensions arise between her and the Queen which only grow worse as Thatcher leads the country into the Falklands War. While Charles’ romance with a young Lady Diana Spencer provides a much-needed fairy tale to unite the British people, behind closed doors, the Royal Family is becoming increasingly divided.
The season four DVD and Blu-ray sets include several extras, including three mini-docs: “Triumph & Tragedy: Diana and Charles”; “Three Groundbreaking Women”; and “Research, Costumes & More: The Making of Season 4.” Also included is a photo gallery.
