OFFICIAL: We finally have a release date for The Crown season four

2020 is not lost, after all.

Netflix has confirmed a release date for The Crown season four - and it's coming on November 15.

The wildly successful award-winning drama returns for its fourth instalment later this year, detailing Queen Elizabeth's reign in the late 70s and early 80s, the Thatcher years, and the intense divides still growing within the royal family.

"As the 1970s are drawing to a close, Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) and her family find themselves preoccupied with safeguarding the line of succession by securing an appropriate bride for Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor), who is still unmarried at 30," reads the series summary.

"As the nation begins to feel the impact of divisive policies introduced by Britain's first female Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson), tensions arise between her and the Queen which only grow worse as Thatcher leads the country into the Falklands War, generating conflict within the Commonwealth.

"While Charles’ romance with a young Lady Diana Spencer (Emma Corrin) provides a much-needed fairytale to unite the British people, behind closed doors, the Royal family is becoming increasingly divided."

Our bodies, they are ready.

This comes after Netflix confirmed that Elizabeth Debicki had been cast as Princess Diana for the show's final seasons. 

In the upcoming season four, Diana will be played by Emma Corrin, while Josh O'Connor reprises his role as Prince Charles. Helena Bonham Carter will also be returning as Princess Margaret and Olivia Colman will of course be reprising her role as The Queen.

Netflix's The Crown will be streaming worldwide from November 15.
