The Crown: Season 3 - Rotten Tomatoes

The Crown: Season 3 (2019)




Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for The Crown: Season 3

All Critics (99) | Top Critics (38)

Colman does a fine job of capturing Elizabeth's steely resolve against interfering in any drama, but the show seems to have lost interest in her as a character. Season 3 diminishes Elizabeth and... makes her an inscrutable cipher.

"The Crown" might in some way be propaganda for an unfair aristocracy, but it's also irresistible, insightful television.

This Elizabeth is, unsurprisingly, every bit as good as her Emmy-winning predecessor, and the rest of the new regime either meets or bests their counterparts.

Colman brings so memoraby to the screen. Her Elizabeth doesn't exactly earn our sympathy but she does earn our empathy.

The Crown season three doubles down on the series' practice of treating the tiniest diplomatic faux pas as something bearing the immediate potential to threaten the Empire to its veddy core.

If you have previously enjoyed curling up on a cold winter weekend with this series, it will, again, keep you warm.
