When will The Crown season 4 be released?
Netflix has yet to confirm an air date.

There was a two-year gap between seasons two and three, but we’re unlikely to have to wait quite so long for season four.
With this in mind, the next season of The Crown will likely be in in November or December 2020.

More on The Crown
What will happen on The Crown season 4?
The third series ended with the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977.
With this in mind it is likely to go from the end of the 70s up to about 1990, though the exact timespan is still to be confirmed.
The new series will feature the Queen and Margaret Thatcher’s disagreements over Apartheid in South Africa, the 1984-5 miners’ strike and the 1982 Falklands War.
The Sun also revealed how The Crown series four will show Margaret Thatcher publicly humiliating The Queen by outing KGB spy.
It will also cover Prince Charles’ wedding to Princess Diana.
This is just speculation, but The Crown season four could also cover the 1981 incident where six shots were fired at the Queen during the Trooping of the Colour.
It could also cover the Buckingham House intruder, Michael Fagan, who made it into the Queen’s bedroom after a serious lapse in security.
