Excited fans of The Crown have revealed their plans to spend the day bingeing the show as the fourth season premiered on Netflix this morning.
The streaming service unveiled ten new episodes of Peter Morgan’s hit royal drama at 8am this morning, with viewers already taking to Twitter to share their reaction to the drama.
Season four of The Crown covers the span of time from 1977 to 1990 and sees Gillian Anderson’s Margaret Thatcher joining Olivia Colman’s Queen Elizabeth in the show for the first time.
And it seems fans are already hooked, with several revealing their plans to stay in all day and binge watch the show, and many heaping praise on Sex Education star Gillian, 52, for her stellar performance as Thatcher.
One wrote: ‘Staying in my pyjamas all day with lots of yummy treats whilst I binge series 4 of @TheCrownNetflix’.
‘Great to start Sunday morning to watch the new series of the Crown. Binge watching beware today!’ said another.
Morgan’s hit show will portray the pair as ‘twins who are not the same’, its creator revealed ahead of the show’s release.
He said learning the monarch and politician were born just six months apart was ‘a breakthrough’ for him when writing the fourth season of the hit Netflix programme.
Speaking to Vanity Fair, Peter explained he had found many similarities between the two women, saying: ‘They’re both very resilient, very committed, work incredibly hard, have an extraordinary sense of duty. They’re both really committed to the country.
‘They both have a strong Christian faith. They’re both girls of the war generation who switch the lights off when they leave a room.’
The show will also follow Princess Diana’s heartbreaking battle with bulimia, with actress Emma Corrin, 24, vomiting after eating in scenes.
But it is unlikely Prince Harry will criticise the scenes after he and wife Meghan Markle signed a commercial deal with the streaming giant, thought to be worth some £75million.
Production company Left Bank Pictures said that eating disorder charity BEAT were on hand to ensure any portrayal was correct and sensitive.
