News & Interviews for The Crown: Season 4
It's telling that the most sympathetic newcomer this season is Michael Fagan, the Brit who sneaked into the palace in 1982 and confronted the queen in her bedroom.
The dissonance between spoiled Royals and the modern world has turned darker, and the nobility seems a lot less noble. But it's still a fascinating mess for us mere mortals to watch.
10 episodes of television that may not be uniformly among the show's finest, but which are somehow its most authentic.
This new set of episodes continues to give us both the long run and the short, the epic and the specific, as it goes from strength to strength.
The Crown creators have outdone themselves this season, and as they prepare for a time jump and a cast change, it's sad to see such a strong cast go - but we can't wait to see what they have in store next.
Eminently watchable, eternally classy, and enormously well performed, S4 sparkles and other points exasperates, but in that sense reflects the tenor of the era it covers.
"White rich people dealing with white rich problems" remains one of TV's most satisfying genres. In a year without Succession, no series could dethrone Peter Morgan's royal drama. The fourth season was the jewel in its crown.
From the shy smile, to the cocked head and whispered voice, [Corrin] has perfectly captured the mouse that eventually roared.
The Crown's fourth outing is the show back at its best. You may well come to it for the visual feast of Diana and Thatcher, but you'll leave with lots of food for thought - the mark of great telly.
Audience Reviews for The Crown: Season 4
Apr 04, 2021Not having a British royalty obsession, I almost didn't watch "The Crown." What a mistake that would have been! Call it a soap opera if you like, but it's of the highest order, and while there's plenty that's a feast for the eye, that's not the point. This is no silly costume drama like "Downton Abbey" or the currently fashionable "Bridgerton." The acting, writing and direction are consistently excellent. If it were written in iambic pentameter, we might be calling in Shakespearean.
Apr 01, 2021Acting was great, but the story line and writing felt Short when telling what I thought would be the most interesting story to tell on the show.
Mar 30, 2021This series finally nailed the fresh air we needed in Season 3. Ill miss them but I hope the creator makes a S7 and have a change of heart once more.
Mar 30, 2021Still one of the best series Ive watched of all time. Its a shame if Emma Corrin, Gillian, Anderson, Josh O'Connor and the whole series doesnt get an awards sweep in September's Emmy Awards.
Mar 22, 2021Amazing and beautiful. Really touching and interesting!
Mar 07, 2021Season 4 Olivia Colman stars as Elizabeth, with main cast members Tobias Menzies, Helena Bonham Carter, Josh O'Connor, Marion Bailey, Erin Doherty and Emerald Fennell all reprising their roles from the third season. Gillian Anderson, Emma Corrin and Stephen Boxer are added to the main cast. Additionally, Charles Dance returns in the season's first episode and Claire Foy reprises her role as Elizabeth in a cameo flashback scene. The fourth season covers the time period between 1979 and 1990, is set during Margaret Thatcher's premiership, and introduces Lady Diana Spencer. Events depicted include the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, their 1983 tour of Australia and New Zealand, the Falklands War, Michael Fagan's break-in at Buckingham Palace,Lord Mountbatten's funeral,the Princess of Wales's appearance at the Barnardo's Champion Children Awards, and Thatcher's departure from office. Golden Globe 2021 Netflix original took home the trophy for Best Drama Series. The Crown is now a two-time winner in the category, previously being honored in 2017 for season 1.Josh O'Connor and Emma Corrin, were named the Best Performance by an Actor in a Drama Series and Best Performance by an Actress in a Drama Series.The Crown love continued later in the show with Gillian Anderson winning Best Supporting Actress for her performance as Margaret Thatcher. Whatever historical liberties The Crown takes in its fourth season are easily forgiven thanks to the sheer power of its performances , particularly Gillian Anderson's imposing take on The Iron Lady and newcomer Emma Corrin's embodiment of a young Princess Diana. 10/10
Mar 07, 2021Perfect Season! It's the first time I watched a Diana portrayal this perfect unlike its predecessors with either poor script, directing, or acting. Production value will just amaze you. The chemistry within the actors is SUPERB. I will miss them. Pls give Emma, Josh, Gillian, the costumes, and all the awards
Mar 07, 2021THE BEST SERIES OF NETFLIX EVER!!!!!!!
Mar 07, 2021This season blew me away I cried for Diana.
Mar 03, 2021I didn't like the story line. In the first two seasons it focused more on the queen and Philip and in the 3rd and 4th seasons it's mainly about Charles and now also about Margaret Thatcher. Also Princess Margherets roleThat was super boring.
