Exciting: The Crown season three: Netflix unveiled a new poster for the show on Tuesday with a regal Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies and Josh O & # 39; Connor

The third season of the Crown has won a legion of rave reviews in a handful of less flattering reviews prior to his return to Netflix later this month.

The hit show returns to the streaming service on November 17 with a whole new cast, including Olivia Colman, 45, who takes over Claire Foy, 35, as The Queen, and the reviews are generally positive so far.

Both The Mirror and The Guardian praised the show, while Vulture wrote about Olivia's work: & # 39; Colman & # 39; s performance is an exercise of a season of extraordinary restraint that yields a deep payout & # 39 ;.

As the show continues over time, the cast of seasons one and two are complemented by new faces alongside Olivia as an older queen.

Joining the Broadchurch actress is Tobias Menzies, 45, replacing Matt Smith, 37, as Prince Philip and Helena Bonham Carter, 53, steps to play Princess Margaret that was previously played by Vanessa Kirby, 31.

Season three largely reflects the era of Harold Wilson, who was prime minister from 1964 to 1970 and then from 1974 to 1976, when he resigned for health reasons.

And Olivia will play the steel and limited monarch while facing her darkest time on the throne as she fights the miners' strike, national security, rivalry between siblings, and family conflicts for her 1977 silver jubilee.

The mirror gave a glowing review of the show, with no less than five stars given by film writer Lewis Knight.

He wrote: & # 39; The crown remains a fascinating, well-acted and opulent drama series and one that is generally also quite balanced in how it explores what is probably the most famous family in the world. & # 39;

A less flattering summary came out The independent, where Ed Power wrote: & # 39; & # 39; Just like with the real Elizabeth, it is big but still a little colorless, gilded but never quite glamorous …

& # 39; And with the marriage of Charles and Diana and Margaret Thatcher of Anderson in season four, there is still much to look forward to. But for now, the jewel in Netflix's tiara has lost its luster. & # 39;

It was The Guardian who insisted that the show suffers defects – but jumps to the defense of the hit show by admitting that confidence helps mask the misery.

Lucy Mangan wrote: & # 39; On the one hand it is great. You are crazy about you. Because of the ruthless top performances, the squat and the frisson of forbidden knowledge. And on the other hand, it has the action stop every 12 minutes or so …

& # 39; Just like the royals themselves, it is so self-confident and so precisely designed that you do not notice the defects. & # 39;

In another suggestion that Olivia is the pillar among her & # 39; s, Tilly Pearce of the Subway claimed to be the & # 39; dollmaster & # 39; of the other characters.

Before the reviews were released, Olivia revealed the rigorous preparations she was undergoing to perfect her new royal role as she spoke with Harper & # 39; s Bazaar UK.

The Oscar winner admitted that one of the directors of the drama & # 39; had to teach her to walk & # 39; to get hold of the role of the frost.

The star said: & # 39; I don't really like research. But for that I have to accept it. I can't just sit like me, I have to sit like her, and look like pictures of her …

& # 39; They taught me how to walk – I am really horrible about that, I have no physical consciousness. I am a bit like a farmer, said one of the directors. & # 39;

Opulent and beautiful: the reviews from The Crown Series Three

The mirror: *****

& # 39; The crown remains a fascinating, well-acted and opulent drama series and one that is generally also quite balanced in how he explores what is probably the most famous family in the world. & # 39;

The Guardian: ****

& # 39; On the one hand it is great. You are crazy about you. Because of the ruthless top performances, the squat story and the frisson of forbidden knowledge. And on the other hand, it has the action stop every 12 minutes or so …

& # 39; Just like the royals themselves, it is so self-confident and so precisely designed that you do not notice the defects. & # 39;

The independent: ***

& # 39; As with the real Elizabeth, it is grand yet a little colorless, gilded but never quite glamorous … And with the marriage between Charles and Diana and Margaret Thatcher from Anderson to come in season four, there is much to look forward to. But for now, the jewel in Netflix's tiara has lost its luster. & # 39;

Then of course there are some missing moments in the show where they have chosen and chosen what to ignore and what to look out for, but in the end it's a fictional version of history, not a daily reconstruction, so you'll just overlook it have to see if it has to clump.

Overall the series is great, and the season four is taking a new direction. It's an interesting take, but we like it.

Digital Spy

& # 39; The Crown season three feels very different from the first two seasons. The characters are more established in the world in which they belong, and each episode is presented as a stand-alone with very few running threads …

& # 39; With the introduction of Princess Diana for season four, we expect much more from the next chapter and season three can become a filler for the overall box set in the long run. & # 39;

Vulture

& # 39; Some important things have changed in the third season, but basically the Netflix drama remains the same …

& # 39; It is still beautifully photographed, still dedicated to shine a new light on royal history and still enormously satisfying to see. It is also still very well acted, although that is where the biggest shifts take place. & # 39;

The Los Angeles Times

& # 39; Colman is masterful as a cold but not indifferent figurehead for a country that needs comfort. She has to fake tears when she visits a disaster site where a schoolhouse full of children was buried under an avalanche of coal sludge ….

& # 39; Colman carries that imbalance with her all season, while icily dressing her own son Charles (Josh O & # 39; Connor) and then tenderly talking about the racehorses she loves as if they were her real children & # 39;
