5 Things You Need to Know About Season 3 of 'The Crown'
We can already smell the drama brewing.
Once upon a time, in a world before Netflix's "The Crown," we're not sure how we spent our evenings and weekends without Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret, Prince Philip, and the royal posse gracing our television screens.
Now that we've wrapped up our second (or third) viewing of Season 2, we can't help but be antsy for the series' third season. While it's not likely that Season 3 will debut until 2019, here a few interesting morsels to whet your appetite until then.

1. A fourth season of the show is also in the works.
"We’re doing them back-to-back. I’m writing them all at the moment," showrunner Peter Morgan said at a BAFTA Masterclass, as Town and Country pointed out. Here's to hoping that means the two seasons' release dates won't be too far apart.
2. The cast as you know it will be gone.
The main characters from Season 1 and 2 are all changing for future seasons of "The Crown." Replacing Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth will be Olivia Colman. Helena Bonham Carter will play Princess Margaret, and Tobias Menzies will take on the role of Prince Philip, according to The Independent.
3. Season 3 will take place in "The Wilson Era."
As the U.K.'s The Sunday Times reveals, episodes will occur during the tenure of Prime Minister Howard Wilson, who was in office from 1964 to 1970 and 1974 to 1976.
4. Princess Diana will enter the series' plot.
As People reported, the latter part of Season 3 will welcome Princess Diana to the show. Viewers can expect to see Princess Di take on a much bigger role as the series progresses.
5. Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will also be in Season 3.
Charles, Prince of Wales' second wife will enter the show in the third season as well, as Glamour stated.
Well, since it's the off-season, we'll get back to biding our time until Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's upcoming Royal wedding.
