We finally get a look at all the major players in The Crown Season 3 in the new trailer. Tensions rise in the UK in the 1960s. Here’s just a glimpse.

Tensions are rising in the 1960s UK in The Crown Season 3 trailer. Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies, and Helena Bonham Carter are among the stars taking on the roles of the various characters, stepping in from their predecessors for the last two seasons. And now we get our first real glimpse at what to expect.

Colman’s Elizabeth is struggling to hold onto power. Menzies’ Philip knows that there’s a real risk to the crown. If a certain man gets into power, the whole monarchy will be done for. That’s what he feels anyway. Does he have it right to feel that way? We all know how history played out in the end, but this is a chance to feel it in real-time.

Meanwhile, there are tensions within the Royal Family. Charles is growing up and he’s learning that his family may not have his best interests at heart after all. This is a boy growing into a man, learning to love for the very first time. You know how his life turned out, but how did he feel at the time? What did he think that he couldn’t share with the papers?

The trailer is just a brief glimpse of what to expect. We get a look at our major players, along with other familiar faces, as we move throughout the 60s and beyond. Are you ready for the next stage of the story?
