The Crown

Critics Consensus

Olivia Colman shines, but as The Crown marches on in reliably luxurious fashion through time it finds space for the characters around her, providing ample opportunity for the appealing ensemble to gleam, too.

Audience Reviews for The Crown: Season 3

  • Nov 21, 2022
    continued success with a revamped cast But there is a lack of climax scenes of the season that catches people's attention
  • Nov 13, 2022
    The new casting is still excellent but Josh O Connor really outshines the rest of the characters, not only looking like Charles but adopting his postures and expressions perfectly
  • Nov 12, 2022
    So far only got to episode 3 about the Aberfan disaster. Olivia Coleman brings a taut drama and psychology to the role that absolutely fit the middle aged monarch. Her make up is perfection, as is her costuming. So far this is a much more interior season than the first two, jazzed up by HBC's Margaret doing her clever sexy thing with Lyndon Johnson. Looking forward to the rest of the season.

    Best show on tv, great story

    Season 1 Review: I put off watching The Crown for years. It didn't look appealing enough to waste valuable time watching actors that were unfamiliar to me. I just have a very busy schedule, and I rarely get the opportunity to sit down to enjoy my usual favorites. However, having surgery recently and seeing it pop up over and over, and over... and over again. I decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, Season 1 was so captivating, that even after recovery, I found it difficult to even get out of bed to get any work done. The problems this show has caused me are insufferable. I have to use restroom breaks as an opportunity to free myself from the mania. Nevertheless, against my better judgment, I always start another episode like a deranged person. So, if you have plenty of time to waste, grab some popcorn and get comfortable. You'll be there a while. Season 2 Review: Claire Foy has done it again. She made me fall in love with The Queen in Season 1, and kept me rooting for her throughout Season 2. This show has made me wish I had cared more about World History in my 38 years. I've been surprised by several interesting scandals and events in a part of the world that I was never interested to learn about before. I'm not familiar with Matt Smith outside of The Crown, but it seems he is a great actor. Unfortunately, he's just not doing it for me this season. Prince Phillip may have been a jackass, but Smith portrays him with vile evilness. I feel he would be better suited in a role as a serial killer. Vanessa Kirby really makes you sympathize with Princess Margaret. Kirby provides a deep understand of why she was always... kinda ratchet. I could go on about the cast, but you'll just have to see for yourself. Season 3 Review: I'm done... I just can't anymore... While I understand the characters needed to grow older, a complete change of cast was completely uncalled for. With today's technology and special effects, there's no way this was the only option they had. It's an entirely different show now, and it was undoubtedly the most poor decision they could have made. Even though I was very happy to see Tobias Menzies come on as Prince Phillip (looking more like the real deal than Matt Smith in the first two seasons), he is downright dreadfully boring. The adjective that was so frequently repeated in the second season, must have been a prediction of what was to come. The third season is so "unremarkable". I find myself struggling to sit through as little as 10 minutes at a time. Finally getting to episode 8, I've found myself just letting it play while I'm busy with something else, or just skipping through long parts of the shows, mostly Prince Phillip storylines. I'm only holding on in hopes the series will eventually reach the era of my lifetime. I'm interested to see what they have in store for Princess Diana, and hopefully they get to Prince Harry and Meghan.

    The Crown gracefully passes on from Foy to Coleman, while O'Connor, Watkins and Carter steal every scene they're in with their incredible performances.

    Season 1 and 2 are far better and more compelling than Season 3. Hoping Season 4 won't be a letdown.
  • Apr 04, 2022
    Very good but the actress playing the queen is not as good as in the first 2 seasons. The actor playing Phillip is way better than in seasons 1 and 2.
  • Feb 09, 2022
    though the historical accuracy may be a concern, the whole production and the acting of the actors are amazing
