Netflix will make Olivia Colman’s debut in The Crown free to watch
The third season of The Crown returns on Sunday, 17th November to Netflix.
Olivia Colman’s debut as the Queen in Netflix’s drama series The Crown will be made free to watch by the streaming giant.
For around a month, viewers in the UK and Ireland will be able to stream the first episode of the third series online, even if they do not have a Netflix membership.
The episode will be available from November 17 until December 15 on the Netflix website.
A spokesman for Netflix said: “The Crown has become a globally renowned British success story since it first launched on Netflix three years ago.
“We want to give as many people as possible a flavour of the great content Netflix is creating here in the UK, by offering the first instalment of the new series without signing up.
Olivia Colman stars as the Queen, taking over the royal role from Claire Foy.
Helena Bonham Carter plays the late Princess Margaret and Tobias Menzies plays the Duke of Edinburgh in the new series.
Helena Bonham Carter believes hit series The Crown could be better called The Conjecture as she thinks the show serves up speculation on mysterious royals.
Bonham Carter said she believes the royals have a good sense of humour and Margaret herself would be “amused” by her on-screen portrayal.
The Crown was the first global Netflix original show to be produced and filmed in the UK.
Until December 15, anyone can watch episode one simply by visiting netflix.com/thecrown.
