Season one of the historical hit was released in November 2016 and series two in December 2017, however, there was a longer production period leading into the third season due to the introduction of a brand new cast and a time jump in the storyline.
Filming for season three began in July 2018, and Olivia Colman confirmed at the 2019 Oscars in February that principal filming for the show had just finished – although she also mentioned that reshoots were about to take place.
Filming for season four of The Crown will start in August 2019.
