This is Netflix’s most ponderous and ambitious project, a successful attempt to tell the British history of the 20th century through the life of the now living Queen Elizabeth II.

The third season of “The Crown” tells about the country and the world in the 1960s and 70s, and the amazing actress Olivia Colman — who won an Oscar for the role of Queen Anne Stewart — plays adult Queen Elizabeth.

Netflix gives a lot to its flagship project. Expensive filming, incredible settings, and great actors in the cast — all of this compensates for the lengthy narrative that is inherent in this grandiose series.

Interesting Facts

– Initially, there supposed to be six seasons, but then the series was reduced to five. The main idea is: in the first season, Queen Elizabeth II is played by a young actress (Claire Foy). Then the following two seasons are about the queen’s life in the 1960s and 1980s, with Olivia Colman playing the title role. In the final seasons, the wonderful actress Imelda Staunton will portray Elizabeth II.
